    I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety to couples counseling and beyond. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for. I utilize different therapeutic modalities when working with clients. The main two modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

    Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. Considered a “solutions-oriented” form of talk therapy, CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior. Feeling distressed, in some cases, may distort one’s perception of reality. CBT aims to identify harmful thoughts, assess whether they are an accurate depiction of reality, and, if they are not, employ strategies to challenge and overcome them.

    EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue, or homework between sessions. EMDR, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. Part of the therapy includes alternating eye movements, sounds, or taps. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies.

    Social Anxiety Disorder Counseling

    Do you experience intense anxiety or nervousness when faced with social situations? Do you fear a negative evaluation from others? Is this causing you considerable distress and an impaired inability to function in some aspects of daily living? Is this fear holding you back from the life you'd like to live? There is treatment and there is a way to feel better.

    Telehealth

    Do you need support, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment? Telehealth is a viable option that is secure and effective. If you are curious about this option and to see if this is a good fit for you contact me and we can discuss it.

    Therapy for Depression

    Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self? Have you noticed a consistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily living. Depressive symptoms can range from mild to severe. Depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults in any given year. You don't have to do this alone.

    EMDR

    What is EMDR Therapy? Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories (Shapiro, 1989a, 1989b).

    Mindfulness-Based Therapy

    Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is an integrative approve between cognitive behavioral therapy methods along with mindfulness meditative practices.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people challenge and change negative and unhelpful distorted thoughts and behaviors, while improving emotional regulation and developing coping strategies.

    Counseling for Anxiety

    Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how much you try. Counseling for anxiety can help you identify your underlying causes of your worries and fears, while learning ways to cope and developing improved strategies.

    Counseling for Trauma

    Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect. Trauma comes in all forms, from little "t" traumas to big "T" traumas, they can all impact the way we see ourselves and the way we see the world. Therapy can help you identify what the impact is and make the necessary changes to be free from your past.
