I treat depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, relationship anxiety, and anxiety related to medical problems.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable setting that allows you to get the greatest benefit from our work together. In addition to traditional office sessions, I offer flexible solutions including phone, teletherapy, or home visits. Emotional issues can trigger or make a significant contribution to anxiety, skin conditions, skin picking issues and hair pulling (trichotillomania) issues. Relaxation, visualizations, meditation, and a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and body-focused psychotherapy can make the difference. You can take more control by discovering how to manage your emotional triggers and by developing strategies to alleviate anxiety, skin issues, skin picking, and hair pulling.

I've found EMDR therapy to be effective and efficient in helping people who are wanting to let go of heaviness and fatigue related to intrusive or self limiting thoughts, often brought on by disturbing childhood events. For couples, I've found the John Gottman, Phd Marriage Institute material in giving couples the insight and tools the need to to get them "unstuck". With children age 2-7 years of age, I've found that they can "play out" their inner conflicts through Non-directive Play Therapy and find new levels of self-awareness, self acceptance and self control.
