My Approach to Helping

I have been a counseling professional for over 30 years now. I find it often to be the most rewarding work that I can imagine. It gives me much satisfaction to see individuals, couples, and families advance in their lives. My consistent enthusiasm and optimism in working with others is infectious, and serves as a springboard for people to make beneficial, transformative changes in their lives. Individuals coming to my office find it to be a warm, welcoming, and safe atmosphere where their concerns can be fully understood, digested, and addressed in a most professional and respectful manner. Given my diverse background and training, I use a number of approaches that are integrated skillfully per the therapeutic demands of each person's circumstances. I have cultivated a strong intuitive, inner guidance and discernment that helps me to rapidly zero in on what is helpful or useful for each therapeutic situation. Individuals who see me can also learn to develop these same qualities in themselves so that they can have the self-confidence they ultimately need to succeed in any inward or outward endeavor.

I utilize effective, proven therapies such as EMDR and visualization in addition to traditional talk therapies. I am also certified to provide brainwave optimization, a non-invasive, non-harming computer-assisted neurotechnology developed by Brain State Technologies. This revolutionary procedure balances one's brainwaves by using an acoustic mirror; one's own brainwaves are converted into musical notes that one hears in real time. By hearing one's own brainwaves,the brain is able to calibrate and optimize its own activity. When this happens mood improves, anxiety and stress is reduced, focus is enhanced, and addictive personality tendencies are mitigated. It is a ground breaking procedure that thousands have already benefited from, and it generally brings about rapid change.

Helping couples and families is a passion of mine. I primarily use emotionally focused therapy and Imago communication technique, evidence based, clinically proven approaches to help couples overcome their problems. Couples that I see are able to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their relationships by improving their communication and enhancing affection for each other.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve you. Free initial phone consultation!
