Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

I have been a therapist for more than 25 years working with individuals who have experienced trauma and other challenging issues in their lives. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with most clients during treatment. Additionally, I use EMDR, CBT, DBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure.

I also enjoy working with clients who struggle with relationships, depression, panic and other forms of anxiety. The pace of therapy varies considering each individual's unique worldview, resources and challenges. I also have expertise with treatment of chronic pain using the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain protocol.
