My Approach to Helping
Is your child's behavior unbearable?
Does nothing alleviate your depression or anxiety?
Discover the latest innovations in emotional healing. The Impulse Model focuses the benefits of the most effectual psychotherapy models into a single efficient method. Recapture control of your household and your life.
Most psychotherapy methods depend upon talking, but talking by itself is not always enough. The Impulse Model often circumvents the talking process to address emotional needs on a deeper level. By working on core emotional needs with non-touch, body-oriented procedures combined with counseling, my approach directly involves the healthy person inside. Unearthing the real person behind the emotional problems, is fulfilling and exciting to me.
All individuals have the same needs for genuine connection, healthy agreements, emotional expression, healthy boundaries, etc. Therapy methods that address more emotional needs provide greater reliability and benefit. Intensive work with core impulses and needs affords the quickest, most complete relief for depression, anxiety and other conditions.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Therapists vary considerably in approach. Not every therapist is a match for every individual. If therapy is helping, you should feel good at the end of the session, or at least better than you did at the beginning. If this is not the case for you, try a different therapist.

Absolutely, adversity, when handled in a healthy way can lead to growth. My own struggles have helped me to be a healthier, more powerful person, which is key to being an effective therapist. In addition, going through my own struggles and healing have let to more passion in me for helping others.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
It is not the job of a client to trust me right away. It is my job to help a client to feel safe. Safety is the basis of trust. Clients should never be pushed to go further than they are ready to go.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
In my opinion everyone needs therapy at some point in time. Only strong individuals are willing to look at their own "stuff" to do the work necessary for healing. I believe that the stigma is the result of judgments and justifications by those unwilling to do such work.
