My Approach to Helping
I primarily work with women. I have 25 years of experience. I use an integrated approach of clinical techniques and a bit of humor to help individuals meet their therapy goals. I enjoy working with women to reduce their stress and increase their problem solving and coping skills. I help individuals explore their options and acquire tools to ease the stress of life.
I provide a supportive and relaxed atmosphere. I offer individual therapy using a blended approach of Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered and Solution Focused techniques.
During our first meeting I will gather a comprehensive history. Even more important our first meeting is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable with me. My communication style is honest and caring. We will work together to meet your goals.
I also use Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a therapeutic approach proven highly effective to reduce emotionally charged responses when remembering disturbing events.
I am a member of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). I am currently receiving supervision to become a Certified Sex Therapist to help women explore their sexual issues and concerns.
