"Regardless of whether you are deciding to come to therapy to treat a specific diagnosis, decrease your substance use, deal with a difficult life transition, manage a difficult relationship, or to find more meaning and purpose in your life, I am here to support you on your path. I see my work as helping you become more conscious of the patterns in your life so that you can not just live the life you want, but learn the skills to course-correct when you inevitably go off path – as we all do. I strive to do this in by integrating humanity, understanding, authenticity as well as evidence-based research (e.g. CBT, DBT, ACT, etc.)."

"What I do is help clients identify and understand thoughts and beliefs they have that keep them from feeling good about themselves and get in the way of living life to its fullest. Each individual has a unique view of the world and relationships etched out of our early experience. If those experiences are good enough, then one is able to meet life's challenges, but if these experiences are wrought with dysfunction and trauma, meeting these challenges is much more difficult and one may require assistance from a professional who can safely facilitate exploration of the obstacles to fulfillment."

If you have a psychological issue and would like rapid reprogramming (e.g., PTSD, anxiety, panic, depression, addiction, phobias), I can help--even when conscious-based tools have failed. If you have a physical issue that hasn't fully responded to other treatments (e.g., IBS, fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic pain), I can help.
