I provide therapy that will help you develop skills, face challenges, and build on your strengths to make life changes. Perhaps you need brief therapy to help you get unstuck. Perhaps you want assertiveness training so you can learn how to listen and be heard, love and be loved. Together we can strengthen your communication skills, improve your connections with others, and strengthen your boundaries. I can help you free yourself from addictions and compulsive behaviors such as compulsive shopping, compulsive sexuality, eating disorders, and Internet addiction, and move beyond obsessive ruminations. I can help you work through the difficulties of grief, abuse, loss, accidents, illness, and life transitions. I can help release you from unhealthy patterns of anxiety, anger, and depression, and heal you of the emotional reactivity that wounds those you love and destroys relationships.
I have experience with prolonged exposure therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), somatic and ego-state therapies that promote mind/body awareness using movement, breath, and visualization, emotional freedom technique (EFT), Jungian active imagination, and Kundaline yoga therapy.

More Info About My Practice
My fees are $125 per 55-minute hour for individual therapy and $175 per 75-minute session with couples or family. Payment is due at the time of service. I am not in any insurance network, but I will bill insurance for your reimbursement. I do pro bono work for Returning Veterans Project, but with few exceptions, I do not offer a sliding scale.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My specialties are treatment of trauma, addictions, and relationship problems. I worked as an addiction counselor and clinical supervisor at a residential alcohol and drug treatment center for seven years before going into private practice full time. I have learned many strategies for alleviating the painful response to traumas from past and present. I specialize in communication issues: how we talk to ourselves, what we hear from others and how we handle this, how we feel about ourselves in important relationships (family, work, friends, colleagues, lovers), how we treat others, and whether we can get what we want! Several times a year I run an 8-week Assertiveness Skills Group. I can help you learn to be successful in your problem relationships, especially in the relationship with yourself.
