My Approach to Helping

Much of psychotherapy focuses on clients' problems, but it's my belief that equal or more time should be spent on helping clients uncover strengths and skills that have been overshadowed by the problems.

My work is strength-based, focusing on the unique experience and skills people already have available to them to overcome their problems. This can include their family history, beliefs, ideas, values, culture and ethnicity.

Psychotherapy is about trust building, exploration of feelings, different ideas and perspectives and education. I believe that through psychotherapy and counseling, people can change, grow and live healthy, complex lives.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in reducing the effects of trauma, supporting recovery from significant life events, death or substance abuse. Through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), EFT, skill building and talk therapy, I am able to compassionately help people get back on their life track.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I believe in hope, resiliency and change. For the last 15 years, I have felt privileged to be a part of people's journey's toward relationship, love, healing and recovery. I know change is possible and have seen it over and over again. Psychotherapy is very individual. When clients and I make a strong therapeutic connection, anything is possible.
