My Approach to Helping
I am a psychotherapist in private practice and provide individual counseling to adults combining traditional approaches with additional complementary approaches which creates a deeper level of healing. We will work together to take you beyond symptom reduction to the achievement of a sense of wholeness within your self.
I have completed basic level training in EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ) and have continued to advanced training in the technique.In addition I have studied healing arts which include energy modalities such as Reiki, Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and spiritual enhancement techniques such as Meditation, Mindfulness, and guided imagery work. I have successfully combined both traditional therapies such as CBT ( Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ) with spiritual/energy approaches that together produce powerful transformative experiences and healing.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy helps when you feel "stuck" in your life and are having difficulty moving forward. Counseling helps put these issues in perspective so that you can move forward and learn from the past while embracing the present and looking forward to the future.
