My Approach to Helping
I have 35+ years of working in the field of mental health. I provide both in office sessions and secure online Video sessions. I provide individual, marriage/couples, and family therapy. I provide psychological testing/evaluation for children (age 6-18) and adults. I also provide Life Coaching. I treat most psychological conditions; however, I have a passion toward treating Behavioral problems, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and for individuals working in Law Enforcement, or First Responder Personnel, or Military Veterans (I am a Tricare in network provider). My treatment approaches draw from a variety of interventions including: Behavioral Approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EFT, EMDR, Energy Psychology, Family Systems, Communication Training, Relaxation Training, Biofeedback training, Guided Imagery,and Psychodynamic approaches. I practice an integrative approach toward dealing with individuals, couples, and families addressing areas that influence your psychological health including body, mind, soul, and spirit. Our relational patterns can either be health promoting or toxic. The same can be said for our underlying ongoing thoughts and our behaviors. What we think and what we do influences our psychological and relational health. I believe too many times we turn to pharmaceuticals to treat conditions and we only end up numbing or masking the underlying conditions rather than obtaining healing. However, I will respect your choice to use medication especially as you have found that to be helpful to you. I share an office with a holistic nurse and an acupuncturist. I believe in complementary and alternative approaches toward treatment and can make a referral to them if desired.
