Whether you're dealing with a specific disorder or simply need a sounding board for the issues you've been struggling with, therapy may help you to get back on track. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist my approach is non-judgmental, compassionate, engaging, authentic, and supportive. When working with me, you and your experiences are the focus of treatment, which is completely tailored to your individual needs. I am striving to provide you with attentive care in a safe space, designed to help you better understand, work through, and manage the issues and problems that plague you.
I draw from a variety of psychotherapy theories including Gestalt Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, Humanistic and Holistic Theory approaches, Family Systems, and current research in psychology and neuroscience, as well as my 25+ years of extensive training and experience. I believe in the dynamic interrelatedness of body, mind, and spirit.
As a certified Therapist in EMDR and EMDR Consultant in Training, I am working from an attachment focused perspective integrating mindfulness and somatic interventions into traditional psychotherapy approaches.
