I provide individual counseling to pre-teens, teenagers and adults. I love the work I do because I've found that it can make a life-changing difference to feel understood, supported, and empowered as we stand up to life's toughest challenges and pursue our greatest hopes.
I have been honored to work with children, pre-teens, teens and their families for years in community mental health. I've also worked with individual adults from other countries. I enjoy helping my clients to practice new life strategies, to see their own inner strength and to come to further know and believe in themselves. I primarily focus on self-esteem, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues and life transitions. I believe in the importance of building a safe, caring and effective therapeutic rapport with my clients. I'm open to working with a variety of age-groups and circumstances if I can help clients on a path toward improved health and success. I commend you for having the courage to seek support to make something better in your life. If you think I can help, please don't hesitate to call for a free consultation.
Are you are struggling with painful issues in life? Do you want to experience a more meaningful way of living? Our experiences take us through many life changing events and challenges and sometimes in our life journey we may become stuck in our growth. I use an integrative approach that draws on my experience in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Brief Solution Focused Therapy (BSFT) and mind/ body focused practices. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have used EMDR with good results for trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression and phobias. I understand the challenges of living with any of the above issues. They can bring into question our relationships, personal values, and life's meaning. Your concerns are always the focus and you set the goals for therapy with my help and support in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere.
