My specialty is treating depression ,anxiety and trauma in adults and children.
Do you feel stressed and overwhelmed by feelings and events that you feel are out of your control? These feelings of powerlessness and vulnerability can lead to anxiety and depression and can influence your life and relationships . I believe that people are looking for a therapist who is knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful in solving their problems. In my 25 years as a licensed psychotherapist I have committed myself to helping clients to understand themselves and create the lives they desire.

I have vast practice in treating people that have experienced trauma of one type or another.
Each provider in this listing is looking for the best way to present himself or herself. My clinical position is that therapy is simply coffee and conversation. It is a collaboration between the treater and the patient to reach the outcome that meets the needs and desires of the person sitting in the other chair. I strive to treat the person not the diagnosis. The patient brings knowledge of all that makes up their being. I bring experience, strength, and hope. Together we strive to achieve the solution for your life. A partnership to success. May I help you?

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma informed approaches and strengths perspective.
I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Do you ever feel stuck in your life and unsure of which direction to take? Do you have trouble setting goals and sticking to them? Are there relationships in your life in which you would like to create healthier boundaries? Are you ready to make a change and develop a deeper understanding of your emotions?

People often don’t believe in therapy because they don’t believe they can change. Some people imagine their “ideal” self and feel that they are too far behind or too unstable to become that person. I do this work because I believe in people and I know they can change. My purpose as a therapist is to meet you wherever you are in your journey and create a safe, empowering space where we can work together as a team to move you closer toward your personal goals. This may mean working through past trauma , identifying destructive patterns, or perhaps it just means helping you reframe your thinking about a current life change.

OnLine Only! EMDR is powerful in resolving complex trauma and PTSD . A safe therapeutic relationship will be developed between the client and therapist for work to proceed and be successful long term. A safe, holistic, empathic, integrative relationship is key and is the primary therapeutic approach. As your therapist I can help you resolve the inner and outer conflicts that create pain and exhaustion. Sometimes we feel hurt, scared, or deeply alone. Sometimes what happens seems too big to manage. Look on youtube for "Introduction to EMDR" by EMDR International Assoc. Trauma -focused therapy is my passion.

Hypnosis and EMDR treatment modalities address trauma , self-esteem issues, behavioral problems - addiction, over-eating, smoking - and a host of other emotional troubles.
I am a psychotherapist who treats adults and couples using a psychodynamic approach. I also offer hypnotherapy or EMDR to patients when we agree that these treatment modalities might be helpful. After more than twenty years of experience I have come to understand the human condition in joy and in sadness and believe that psychotherapy and psychoanalysis hold the key to the relief of anxiety, depression, relational conflict, terror, loneliness, and fearfulness. Therapy is serious business, where many feelings are given expression. Consider that one of them might be joy.

My specialties include: Addictions, Mood Disorders, ADHD, Anxiety, PTSD , Women's Issues, Relationship Issues, and Parenting Support.
Life can be difficult. Asking for help can be really difficult. Finding the "right" therapist can be downright overwhelming. I am not your "typical" therapist. I don't believe in cookie-cutter approaches. I believe that each person should be treated as an individual and that each individual has their own set of needs. I work together with my clients to figure out what those needs are while building trusting, judgement-free relationships and through the use of humor whenever possible. PLEASE NOTE: PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL.

Well good for you. I know it is hard to reach out to a perfect stranger and divulge your life's "junk"! Is this your step 1 or 1001? It does not matter if you have tried this many times before. I believe that timing and the right fit is key to success in anything we humans do. Have you tried talking to a trusted friend, colleague, significant other, parents or siblings? Starting today erase all the negative thoughts from your mind! Wouldn't that be nice if it was that easy! Let me walk with you on your path!

Trauma recovery has been the center of my work.

We will work together to process through old relationship patterns that cause mental illness, rebuild a secure attachment experience, and build a new working model for your life. Our work together is to transform traumatic experiences into a fulfilled and satisfying life.

After moving to New Hampshire, I pursued my MEd from The University of New Hampshire and a second Masters’ (MS) in Substance Abuse Counseling from Grand Canyon University.

My passion continues to be working with the emerging adult population and learning how trauma can impact aspects of human identity.
I am a licensed independent clinical social worker with over 13 years of experience in the mental health field. I began my career in 2009 working in residential programs, and after earning my bachelor’s degree at Rhode Island College, I found myself inspired to pursue a concentrated clinical education. During my Master of Social Work graduate program at Bridgewater State University, I naturally determined the emerging adult population would be my focus.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
