My Approach to Helping
Each person wants to be seen and appreciated as they are. Only by discovering one's true self can you find the creativity to solve the problems that get in your way. Using an eclectic mix of psychotherapy methods I help individuals move through their conflicts, worries and relationship issues. In psychotherapy your strengths are enhanced to form a positive self image. I work actively in relationship with you. We use your goals and concerns to process and move past obstacles. I have special expertise with trauma focused treatment, P.T.S.D, anxiety, depression, panic disorder and performance anxiety. I practice E. M. D. R. ( Eye Movement desensitization and reprocessing), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Many individuals feel that they will become overwhelmed when asked to speak of traumatic memories. I help the individual to feel control over how much one can tolerate and find the moments when readiness is self evident. E.M.D.R. continuously works with self control techniques that provide pleasant and calm arenas. The individual can balance positive soothing experience with the negative memories until the memories are tolerable and are distanced from the self. Fear and powerless feelings no longer keep you captive. Imagine. It is very possible.
