My Approach to Helping
I create a safe and inviting environment to work beside you to help design ways to manage emotions and lead with your brain.
Get relief from both physical and emotional pain. I am experienced in helping patients through the avalanche of life’s unexpected challenges of life.
By using evidence-based cognitive therapy along with practical methods to add to traditional approaches, you will have the option to solve life's difficult challenges. This results in honoring painful memories while providing real-world solutions to move you forward and heal.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are tools for getting you unstuck from the unhappiness that maybe you try to change but just can’t seem to change no matter what you try.
I can help you identify underlying causes to problems that aren’t always easy to find.
These methods can apply to relationships, sickness, phobias, PTSD, and depression. Whatever it is that stops you from enjoying your life, and highjack your brain, I will help you to take control of your life.
I personally will contact you and together we can decide the next best step.
More Info About My Practice
I completely believe that therapy is a way of becoming unstuck from patterns and behaviors that are not working, including anxiety. I help my clients to identify troubling patterns, and experiment with ways to learn more effective amazing strategies to enjoy all life has for them.
At first you will tell me your story. What’s important and how it fits into the problems. I will “walk in your shoes” and respectfully relate to your needs. This usually takes the better part of the first session. From there we move into you setting goals for yourself and deciding how much time you will need.
Usually between 7 to 10 session is enough time to help with either a shift in perspective or coming to a place of acceptance.
I am interactive and solution focused. I use successful modalities including, Emotional Focus Therapy, behavioral health and evidenced based approaches. I offer practical feedback.
With over 25 years of clinical experience, I have attended many “rodeos” about human behavior. I know you may be hurt, you may be scared, angry or very confused. With compassion, understanding and a sense of humor, I can help you find resolution and help you on to your magnificent life.
I will work with you in an honest and straight forward path by integrating approaches to suit your needs. I believe in the brain and the research that supports the brains capacity to grow new neurons, connections and pathways throughout your entire lifespan. What this means is that you can have better management over your emotions, develop the ability to regulate fear and have greater emotional resilience.
