"I believe that change can happen when you least expect it, and therapy is a wonderful way to look at what is holding you back and understand yourself. I bring an empathic, caring persona to the therapeutic process and believe that the relationship developed in therapy is a powerful tool for insight and growth. I have witnessed many patients develop an increased capacity for self-reflection and apply skills learned in therapy to creating a more fulfilled life. My 15 years of experience in the social services field greatly informs my work."

"As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come."

You might be flooded with bad memories you can't shake, feel on edge all the time or have a hard time sleeping. It leaves you wondering if there's anyone who can help you."

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Venice from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Venice or therapists who specialize in sleep in Venice, or simply a Venice sleep therapist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Venice or therapists who specialize in insomnia in Venice, or simply a Venice insomnia therapist, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Venice are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Venice you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Venice and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Venice or family therapy in Venice.
