My Approach to Helping

Are you living the life you want? Or is the past keeping you stuck in situations or mind sets that are holding you back? You deserve to feel confident, safe and excited about your life. If past trauma or relationship problems are keeping you from the joy and peace you want, I'd love to help. I have 25 years of experience helping people let go of the past, feel secure in the present and look toward the future with excitement. I offer in office or teletherapy options, or a mix of the two, to meet your needs. Together we develop goals and strategies that help you implement the kinds of change you want to see.
I use EMDR, Emotion Focused Couples Therapy, Emotion Focused Individual Therapy and a variety of other innovative and effective methods to help people implement the changes they want to see.
Maybe you're a civil servant struggling with burnout and job pressure. With over two decades of civil service management experience, I have a unique perspective and insight into your challenges.
You are the expert on you and nobody knows better than you how your life should look and feel. I have lots of experience and I truly believe that if we put our heads together, we can help you achieve the goals you set for yourself.

More Info About My Practice

I have advanced training in Emotion Focused Couples Therapy and I am a lifetime member of the International Center for Excellence in Emotion Focused Therapy. Not just a couple's approach, I am also trained in Emotion Focused Individual Therapy. I love both of these approaches because I see how effective they can be. However, I have a wide range of other approaches and tailor my therapy to each individual person I see.
I am also trained in EMDR, Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desesitization.
