Life is a wonderful journey of constant growth. Like any journey it can at times be challenging and discouraging. How you deal with the bumps in the road and the more difficult times has a great impact on your physical and emotional well-being. I have been helping individuals just like you, as well as couples and children, for over 25 years to resolve and overcome their emotional, behavioral, relational or spiritual difficulties. I use gentle but direct way of addressing the issues that are presented and offer my support and insight. Together we work to resolve and eliminate symptoms of the emotional distress whether it is due to current life circumstances and issues or traumas from the past. You will discover new and effective ways to cope with debilitating depression, anxiety or interpersonal conflicts.
My clientele consists of individuals suffering from long term or situational depression, anxiety, obsessions and/or compulsions, grief, behavioral issues and difficulty coping with life changes.
I have extensive training in treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress, caused by either childhood or more recent trauma. This type of trauma could be for example: sexual abuse, rape, early losses, emotional abuse or domestic violence. In addition to more traditional counseling and psychotherapy techniques, I have also been trained in the use of EMDR (a method using eye movements to process traumatic memories), EFT (which uses meridian tapping to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety) and AIT (which uses body's energy centers to heal psychological wound energetically). I am Certified Transactional Analysis Practitioner and Certified AIT Practitioner. I also like to work with couples to help them enhance their relationship or bring a resolution to an on-going conflict or crisis.
When working with my clients, I draw from many different techniques of therapy and integrate complimentary methods in order to find what is most helpful for each individual. Together we work to build on strengths and achieve desired outcomes.
I currently accept adults, couples and children 10 years and older for treatment. Parenting coaching is included in the children's treatment plan.
