My Approach to Helping
Do you find yourself emotionally overwhelmed by relationship, health, career or financial issues? Do you feel like no one understands you? I have been helping people with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships and PTSD for over 20 years. I offer tools to help people handle difficult situations and stressful life changes. I teach techniques to assist in effective communication, boundary setting, stress management and conflict resolution. I help clients to manage difficult emotions, overcome negative thinking, feel more confident, and create loving relationships.
One of my specialties is in helping people heal the emotional pain they have had for years. I use Accelerated NeuroHealing, a new cutting edge approach utilizing advanced voice technology. It is a powerful scientific therapy that heals anxiety and trauma more quickly and deeply than I have ever seen. I use EMDR as well. We get to the root of the problem.

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 NeuroHealing 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.
