My Approach to Helping

If you are feeling stuck, afraid, or unhappy in some aspect of your life, I would like to help you find and implement solutions to improve your life. In my practice, I work with adults facing a variety of concerns ranging from trauma (whether recent or long-term) and crisis points to transitions (in where you live, academic life or employment, relationships, or anything else), anxiety, and depression. I welcome clients who are new to therapy as well as people with prior experience who know that coming to therapy as soon as a problem emerges can prevent it from becoming a crisis. I have helped many people overcome these types of problems to live happier and more fulfilling lives. Together, we can identify and overcome your obstacles so that you can live the more fulfilling life that you deserve.

Experience a highly effective treatment approach based on many years of clinical work including guided relaxation and state-of-the art, research-proven techniques such as EMDR and EFT Tapping to utilize your strengths and help you learn to be more fully alive while managing life\'s challenges and the uncomfortable emotions that sometimes accompany change. We will work together to establish a comfortable place for you to face your fears and resolve them. Based on your needs and preferences, I will use a variety of techniques along with ongoing dialogue and developing personal resources to help you achieve your goals. I also honor and support your spiritual beliefs to enhance your process of growth and healing.
