My Approach to Helping

I provide professional, caring and holistic psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment for adults, couples, teens and families. With 25+ years of counseling experience and as a solution-focused and intuitive therapist I am able to rapidly identify and then provide insight, guidance and emotional support in the resolution of my client’s core issues. We will unearth and clear long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling, meaningful and joyful life.
I utilize multiple modalities; including CBT, Repatterning Therapy and Breathwork. The intention is to clear negative thoughts, programming, patterns, trauma and PTSD. These modalities assist in dissolving the root issues that cause anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I also assist with Narcissist Abuse Recovery in individual psychotherapy sessions.

More Info About My Practice

I share with my clients a Calming Toolbox, so you can process and resolve stressors you experience in your everyday life. This includes simple Breathwork exercises that are customized for your unique issues and needs. I also teach Mindfulness and Meditation which are all effective for Stress Reduction.
