About My Clients
Using EMDR & other modalities, such a CBT, IFS & DBT, I work with adults, teens, and families, struggling with conflict, relationship issues, anger, depression, anxiety, divorce, domestic violence, gender identity, behavioral issues, family reunification, abuse, PTSD, or codependency. I am also a Child and Family Investigator (CFI).
My Background and Approach
Dealing with trauma and past hurts, struggling with work, relationships, or addiction, managing depression & anxiety or to better understand one's gender identity or sexuality - it isn't easy to address any of these things. I see therapy as a safe, judgment-free, shame-free, and confidential space, where you are free to vent, confide, cry, discuss, imagine, find strength, and be empowered. Most importantly, therapy is a place for hope to come alive, to learn new coping skills, to achieve personal growth, and to discover you are strong, valuable, and greater than any struggle you might have. Transformation is possible!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I realize meeting with a clinician can be anxiety-provoking and can even feel stressful. It does not need to be. I understand how finances, relationships, children, family, & work can create anxiety, worries, stress and even anger. You don't need to live being "weighed down" by these things - therapy can help lessen your burden! You are worth it!
