COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, CERTIFIED EMDR THERAPIST
My practice is devoted to working with Adults from 19 and up. My basic approach is cognitive behavioral. I use EMDR therapy for many of my clients, as trauma is often the basis, or contributes to, the problems and issues they want to work on. Where appropriate I will also use a variety of other techniques drawn from other therapies. In short, my focus is working with my client's style.

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR
CERTIFIED REHABILITATION COUNSELOR
Congratulations on taking the first step towards finding the peace you seek.
Therapy is the best gift you can possibly give to yourself. How often do you really reflect on your life, relationships, and behaviors? Together in therapy, we will work towards discovering your ultimate life goals and what motivates your life choices. We will then work towards modifying unwanted behaviors or thoughts (hopelessness, anxiety, lack of motivation, constant arguing) by redirecting and challenging motivators.
Specialties: Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Obsessive-Compulsive, PTSD, Trauma
Issues: Career Counseling, Family Conflict, Infertility, Life Coaching, Parenting, Postpartum Depression, Relationship

Making the decision to begin therapy takes courage, and finding the right therapist is an important initial step in the healing process. I seek to help my clients achieve more fulfilling and balanced lives by offering a warm, accepting and non-judgmental environment. I provide individual and group therapy to adolescents and adults with diverse backgrounds and concerns. Whether you are looking for strategies to manage a new life situation, wish to improve your relationships with others, or seek to increase your overall emotional well-being, I offer a safe environment for you to explore your concerns.
I have a particular interest in women's issues, including work-life balance, workplace concerns, pregnancy and postpartum concerns, and unwanted sexual contact/sexual assault. I am also interested in issues faced by students and young professional and quarter-life individuals, including career concerns, developing independence from family, and dating/marriage.
