I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral skills for communication, emotional tolerance, rapid anxiety relief, and better access to your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. I also use EMDR, guided visualization, energy work, and mindfulness meditation techniques for rapid relief of stress, anxiety, and trauma. In therapy, we explore your life in order to fully understand you together. We examine how your experiences in life create meanings that can later guide your choices and responses. We work together to help you tolerate difficult emotions, and understand the unconscious reasons behind your choices. The aim is to create balance in your life, and help you make more successful and empowered life decisions. My style is warm, honest, and interactive. I provide a safe space in which you are deeply understood, while being supported towards significant growth & change. I'm a licensed therapist in long-term private practice, and I teach psychology at a local college.
My style in therapy is warm, honest, and interactive. I always try to understand why my client feels and behaves how they do. Often behavior that is difficult, makes sense when we understand that our brain is just trying to protect us, and has developed coping strategies to do just that. Sometimes, these coping strategies result in unhappy outcomes and so we need to fix them fast. I see human beings as always capable of positive lasting change, and that hard times and crisis, are often opportunities to learn and grow. My goal is for you to feel safe enough to tell me anything and everything. If it is difficult to say and feel, then the best place to deal with it, is in our session. Our goal in therapy is to create balance in your life, and help you live the life you deserve, a life filled with an abundance of inner peace, fulfillment, and happiness.
