About My Clients
I help clients that are open to finding real solutions to problems, not just coping skills. My belief is that when you find and fix the right problem, you don't need coping skills. I help couples working through mild to severe relationship issues and individuals struggling with depression or anxiety. I also specialize in complex trauma, PTSD, dissociation and DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder).
My Background and Approach
I have been a professional counselor since 2001. I have extensive training in both couples counseling and complex trauma. I am level 3 Gottman Couples Counseling trained, I also have the highest level of training offered in EMDR through the EMDR institute, Hypnosis through the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis, and Complex Trauma/Dissociation through the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. I am extremely personable, easy to talk to, and oftentimes share anecdotes from my own life so that my clients know a little about the person sitting across from them. I like to focus on finding real solutions to real problems and helping people heal from the past and broken relationships. Finally, I also think it takes courage to reach out and ask for help and that when someone finally gets to that place they should not have to wait which is why I try to offer all new clients an appointment time within one week of them calling.
