About

In my 20+ years of experience working with adults and couples, I believe that the therapeutic relationship and the safety it provides is key to change. My expertise lies in helping my clients work through their depression, anxiety and relationship issues. As an EMDR trained therapist I help my clients desensitize and reprocess traumatic memories and break free of the distorted negative beliefs they developed in a dysfunctional or addicted family system. The link between childhood trauma exposure and substance abuse is well established. EMDR can help treat alcohol and drug addiction by treating the trauma that underlies it.
I am an Imago trained couples therapist. Imago therapy teaches skills to help couples move beyond the power struggle and into a deeper understanding of each other and important relationship goals. The Imago couples dialogue helps each partner increase their comfort level when talking through difficult emotions. It improves communication and reconnection.
