My Approach to Helping

Are you enslaved by panic and your need for control? Are stress and anxiety running your life? You can become isolated in your relationships, broken-hearted, confused and sad. Life can become exhausting when you are trying so hard to hold it all together, always striving for perfection. This can be a moment when nothing makes sense any more. If you?re running out of answers for how to make things work in your life and relationships, now is the time to reach out for real help and support. Don't wait. Choose peace.

There are time-tested drug-free approaches to reducing anxiety. Life doesn't have to be this hard. You don't have to sort it out alone. You're not crazy, although there may be days when you feel crazy. This is about your bright busy mind developing habits of worry. You learned to be anxious; you can unlearn anxiety and learn peace instead. Conversations with a trusted therapist, trained in relieving anxiety, can be the solution when life seems filled with pain. Reshaping thought patterns and working directly with your nervous system can significantly reduce your anxiety and discomfort.

The keys to your healing are within you. I'll support you in your healing process, drawing on multiple modalities, including talk therapy and Somatic Experiencing to smooth out your nervous system and reduce your anxious experience. We?ll work together to release your fear. We?ll unravel the thoughts and feelings running your life and use today's pain to create tomorrow's freedom and joy. It is possible to transform fear into freedom. Call me. I help people who feel bad feel better.

More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and work with individuals and couples. I developed an expertise in anxiety reduction and trauma healing. I?m a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), a dynamic biologically-based trauma healing modality. I completed Kathy Kain's Touch Skills training.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Good therapy is a path of self-discovery and equips you to steer your life more skillfully, to enjoy your life and relationships more abundantly. You can let go of old stories, make sense of decisions you've made and experiences you've had. You can become mindful of your own thoughts and actions, more observant of how your relationships are working, and increase your capacity to create the equitable, loving, and supportive relationships you want.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

More than training or specific modalities, the most important aspect of a successful therapeutic relationship is actually the healing relationship with the therapist. In a sense it is chemistry. It's certainly a kind of compatibility, and it's always about a safe and respectful interaction. You‚??re looking for a therapist you can feel safe with over time. That‚??s a solid start. You also want someone with experience in the issues you are dealing with. A responsible therapist will always refer you on to someone else if they don't feel their skill-set is a good match for your needs.
