My Approach to Helping
I work intensively with my clients and typically recommend that, at least at the beginning, we meet weekly. My approach draws from a variety of techniques to help you achieve your goals in counseling so that you can see changes in how you approach your life. For clients with trauma and anxiety, I typically use EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) to help reduce symptoms of anxiety, stress, nightmares, and flashbacks. I also tools from the Transformational Coaching Method which, much like EMDR, helps you create meaningful and almost effortless change in your behavior and life approach. You will notice that things actually shift for you and you don't have to constantly think about doing things differently.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
You are the best authority on your life, your feelings, and your way out of whatever isn't serving you at this time. My role as the therapist is to help you recognize and develop your natural talents and live a fuller and more joyful life. This means different things to different people, but often looks something like learning how to cope with panic attacks, set boundaries with people who constantly push them, or just creating more time and space for the activities that feed your soul.
