My Approach

I match my style to your needs. Sometimes talk therapy fits best. I also have extensive experience using EMDR to resolve trauma or longstanding emotional wounds, and IFS to reconcile internal battles and stuck places. My style is open, down to earth, thoughtful and collaborative.

My Background

I've had wide experience treating these problems and helping teens, individual adults and couples improve their relationships, work lives and sense of self. With over 20 years in practice, my work is based in a deep appreciation for human suffering, human resilience and the uniqueness of each individual and their life circumstance. My experience includes specializing in anxiety, trauma, long term recovery in eating disorders, working with young adults, illness and loss, divorce and co-parenting. My other particular area of expertise is culturally competent therapy for with first responders. Please call today for phone consultation or with any questions you have about my approach or practice.
