Everyone experiences emotional distress in their lives and sometimes this can become overwhelming and lead to depression, anxiety, fear, and thoughts of self-harm. I believe people can recover from these symptoms. I employ an eclectic approach which may include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR). All therapy is centered on the goals developed by the client and therapist.
CBT can assist clients with changing how they think which may effect the way they Often a client will experience an "a-ha" moment when considering a situation in a different way. EMDR therapy can help a person to resolve some underlying traumatic issues that may have occurred in the past. Learning and practicing coping skills can help manage emotions.
I accept debit or credit card for co-payment at the time of our appointment. I am happy to bill insurance and ask for payment at the time of the appointment . I accept payment on a sliding scale if you are having financial difficulties or do not have insurance.

I often start with DBT therapy to assist the client in developing coping skills to get some relief right away. Then we usually move on to CBT an EMDR if appropriate. We work on boundaries and use the book "the 4 Agreements " to learn how to view our relationships with others.
