The last year has been hard on almost all of us. Has trauma, loss or grief made it difficult to live the life you really want? How do you imagine your life changing or being more satisfying? My approach is respectful, encouraging and focused on growth. I'm trained in what are called "power therapies." EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and BSP (Brainspotting) have the potential to heal deeply, from within the brain and body, and create understanding and relief.
I have a Journalism degree from Syracuse University and Clinical Psychology degree from Antioch University. But my earliest teacher was my mother, who is an incredible therapist. She taught me how to listen, observe and love, without losing who I am. I like to help my clients uncover this kind of balance in their lives.
My first career was in TV news. I was fascinated by how people behave and think. Transitioning into psychology seemed natural because I could finally go beyond "the story" and help people change and improve their lives. But it takes good rappore and communication for therapy to work. Let's talk about the changes that are important in your life.
