"You are not stuck where you are unless you choose to be."
I am a passenger on the bus you drive -- sometimes I will point out landmarks of importance, side roads that offer a better view, or detours that hold opportunity for a better route. The journey in therapy is always focused on your goals.
I am highly interactive and collaborative and depend on a strong relationship with clients that builds trust and encourages individuality and personal growth.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and use it for trauma, anxiety,depression and strength/confidence building. I also use "Tapping".
I particularly love working with couples and families as these systems hold the greatest opportunity for repairing and strengthening important attachments. In my work with couples, I use aspects of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), and The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy -- I am objective and work to help the couple determine their own path for their future.
