My Approach to Helping
It is my observation that the one area where we receive the least amount of appropriate training in our families-of-origin is in the area of our emotions. Mostly we are taught to ignore, deflect, stuff, etc. and this causes dysfunction in our relationships. It is also my observation that no one comes to therapy until they "feel" bad. So I place much emphasis on emotions, because we cannot help feeling what we feel, but we can help how we express our feelings. And when feelings are expressed appropriately and completely they dissipate and the personal resources we have been using to manage those feelings inside of us are freed up for living.
More Info About My Practice
I am not on any insurance panels, so I don't accept insurance. I require fees be paid at the time of service. However, if your insurance will reimburse for some portion of out-of-network therapy fees, I will provide you with a Super Bill at each session which you can mail in to your insurance company for payment to you.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have a lot of experience working with trauma and loss of any type. The emotions which we experience during these times of duress are often ignored and need to be processed completely. My expertise in Gestalt, guided imagery and Emotional Transformation Therapy are well suited to the integration and release of this emotional storage. When this happens, our competence and ability to respond to everyday demands is increased.
