My Approach to Helping

I believe counseling is a tool individuals can use to facilitate making positive changes in their lives more quickly than going it alone. I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling that combines experiential, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, gestalt and humanistic therapies. I have been trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I have been working in the counseling field since 1996 and have extensive experience in working with adults, who experience depression, anxiety, trauma issues, PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder), substance abuse, codependency and relationship issues.

More Info About My Practice

I have worked full time at Hanover Community Services from June 2001 until September 2018, when I retired. My private practice is limited to a small case load. I can only see clients on Tuesday evenings. I currently charge $50hour, self-pay. I also taken Anthem Healthkeepers.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

I see myself as being compassionate, easy going, down to earth and have a sense of humor. I help individuals in practicing strategies, such as guided imagery, visualization, positive self-talk, mindfulness and breathing techniques to assist clients in developing resources to be able to tolerate painful emotions. I work with clients to help in building ability to self-nurture and to set appropriate interpersonal boundaries.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I have utilized therapy myself and found it to be very helpful. We as human beings are a mixture of strengths and weaknesses, which can sometimes be reversed (our strengths can be our weaknesses and vice versa). There are no perfect humans and we are all in this experience of living as human beings together.
