My Approach to Helping
Have you had more difficulty communicating with your partner, family, or friends? Are you overwhelmed with depression, stress, career, financial, or health problems? Has there been infidelity in your relationship? I can help. I specialize in helping clients to resolve relationship problems, self-esteem issues, depression, and anxiety. I work with individuals, couples, and families. I use techniques to help people improve communication, become more self-aware, and manage conflicts more easily. I help clients to become more assertive, satisfied, and confident in their own decision making process. I also specialize in EMDR.
Limiting belief systems cause us great pain. I have developed a cutting edge therapy called Accelerated Neuro Shifting which rapidly changes neural pathways in the brain. The process identifies and heals core emotional pain that has been subconsciously shut down or "frozen in time" at a deep level. This process "thaws" them out so that they are understood and released. The deep release of this emotional pain from the subconscious causes rapid shifts out of depression and anxiety while creating new and better permanent subconscious belief systems.

The pain that causes one to seek out counseling often brings new personal growth and self-understanding. I can help you get through stressful situations to create more balance, peace, and satisfaction in your life. Both EMDR and Accelerated Neuro Shifting can be used in conjunction with one another. Please call to let me know more about how I can help.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Over the years I have come across many couples with communication and infidelity issues. I have a unique couples therapy approach in which I meet with each person individually for the first two sessions, and then together as a couple for the third session and thereafter. People generally find this approach helpful as it allows them to express themselves enough so that I may understand each perspective thoroughly. This allows me to facilitate communication in the best possible way, as I am able to fully understand the main issues that need to be addressed. People are often relieved to be able to begin couples therapy in this way.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
It is my knowledge that the most highly functioning individuals actually seek out speaking to a therapist. There is a desire to sort out difficult emotions and it at times it proves to be not enough to rely on the ears of family and friends who may have their own opinions and not enough time to hear it all. It takes a very self-aware person to deal with and talk about personal issues in an attempt to resolve things and feel better. Seeing a therapist is a very personal issue, so people do not realize how common it is and are actually unaware of the high numbers of people who seek out therapy these days. As far as stigma goes, as with all personal information, some topics are better kept private. We all are aware that it is unhelpful and even damaging to get a negative reaction when one is already experiencing painful emotions.
