My Approach to Helping

I have helped many people recognize their true potential while helping them overcome their emotional difficulties. I use various modalities of therapy that are evidence based in the effectiveness for relieving depression, anxiety, fear and worry. In addition, I help my clients delve into understanding how their past experiences may be directly connected to some of their current emotional roadblocks. As we discover the correlation of how your past may be effecting their present state of mind, we can work on healing deeper emotional wounds. For clients with past trauma, I use inner-child work and more in depth therapy. For couples I use Sue Johnson's EFT in combination with the Gottman method of therapy.

In summary, I believe that each client has individual needs, and I use the modality I believe is the best fit for each of my clients.
