Brief personal statement

Thank you for taking a moment to learn how I can help you make some significant and meaningful changes in your life. Everyone faces times when life is challenging and resources are limited. I help people develop a new perspective and gain coping skills to reach their goals. If you are struggling with fear, sadness, self-doubt, relationship issues, problems at work or with your family of origin, you might benefit from counseling. I am trained in a broad spectrum of therapeutic approaches to best meet the needs of a variety of clients. I would be honored to help you explore these and many other areas of potential growth in a compassionate, safe, and supportive environment.

Practice Approach

As an individual and couple therapist, a few areas that I commonly work with are trauma, which may result in a need to develop better self-confidence, communication skills training, creating satisfying relationships, relief of anxiety, fears or depression, goal setting and change, resolving relationship conflicts, fear of intimacy and attachment issues. My approach to treatment begins with the initial phone contact where we can discuss your goals for therapy.  This is followed by an initial assessment which might include several visits in order to establish a relationship of trust.  I am certified in several methods of trauma treatment, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) which is currently the top treatment for psychological trauma recognized by the American Psychiatric Association, Department of Defense, and Department of Veterans Affairs.  Please feel free to download my brochure on EMDR treatment by clicking this link to my website at, where you can read more information on my approach to the treatment of psychological trauma. The journey of growth can be an exciting one and I am ready to help you along the path!
