I believe the most important element in the therapeutic relationship is the connection between therapist and client -- person to person. What I bring to the relationship is warmth, caring, and a gentle and compassionate presence. I have a deep faith in your ability to transform your life, empowering you to discover what works and change what doesn't, helping you find your own truth and path. My approach is gentle, yet potent. Using EMDR (www.emdr.com) and EFT (www.emofree.com) as highly effective tools, I help you to release negative patterns and beliefs and build upon your positive resources and strengths.
We work together to enhance your skills and coping in the following areas: * Self-esteem, empowerment, personal and spiritual growth * Depression, anxiety, anger, grief, loss, stress * Trauma, abuse, PTSD * Life transitions - marriage, divorce, career, relocation * Pregnancy/infertility, postpartum issues * Women's issues, multicultural/multiracial issues
I have over 20 years of experience counseling clients from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of issues. I provide adult individual therapy and have extensive training as an EMDR therapist. I also have special expertise in treating prenatal and postpartum depression and related disorders. I look forward to hearing from you to see how I can be of help.
