My Approach to Helping
I partner with my clients to seek new ways to stay mindful and grounded, no matter what life throws at them. Whether through processing past troublesome or traumatic experiences or exploring current difficult situations, I collaborate with you to find new ways of coping and see what options are available to make the necessary changes to have a different, richer, and more fulfilled experience in life.
More Info About My Practice
I'm certified in treating anxiety (CCATP), a trained Sex Therapist (certification in process), and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR)—powerful tools shown to reduce the negative effects of trauma & emotional pain. My work with couples is founded on the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT), which utilizes cutting-edge research in neuroscience, attachment theory and the biology of human arousal.
I work with adolescents (13-17 years old) and adult individuals suffering from the effects of depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, and LGBTQI-related issues. I also help couples across a diverse range of relationship styles navigate difficult conversations and develop securely attached relationships.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Calling a therapist can feel intimidating, which is why I offer prospective clients a free 15-minute phone consultation to hear how I work, ask any questions you have, and determine if we're a good fit.
