Announcement icon Due to COVID19,I am currently seeing clients on line (HIPAA compliant platform). If you are feeling acute stress in this time, please call.
I enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. I also specialize in resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating a times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR and other creative strategies, I have assisted many clients to realize new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about themselves. I believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.
I am an EMDRIA Approved consultant and a certified EMDR therapist. In addition, I am a certified clinical substance abuse counselor. I utilize EMDR along with other therapies (e.g., art therapy, DBT, and MBCT) to help individuals reprocess psychological difficulties connected to addictive behaviors, traumatic experiences, loss, and issues of attachment.
I utilize an addiction recovery model to treat eating disorders, gambling addictions and substance abuse. I also utilize EMDR to assist clients with addictive behaviors, and to overcome performance anxiety (e.g., athletic performance, test anxiety).
