Welcome to my website, thanks for taking the time to browse. I would like to give you an insight into what I do and how this can help you. You may have been to counseling in the past or this may be your very first experience. Finding the right fit with the right therapist and the right counseling style is not a simple task. The connection you make with your therapist is absolutely necessary to your success. I balance my sessions with technical expertise, intuition and a sense of humor. I am committed to help you work towards personal awareness so that you gain insight and clarity into your life. I will spend a lot of time during and after sessions finding the right methods to suit your particular needs. I believe that in order to heal, we need a safe, loving and non-judgmental environment. I will provide that for you.
I have experience working with a diverse population in a variety of settings. I have worked in the school system (had a prior career as a school psychologist), prison system, community agencies, non-profit organizations, and a private practice setting. I worked in a sexual assault and domestic violence center with women and children that were survivors of terrible acts of violence. I have worked with children and adolescences that have behavior and academic problems, are dealing with the divorce of their parents, have experienced sexual abuse or are recovering from the death of a loved one. I worked with individuals and families that were experiencing grief after the death of a love one. I’ve worked with individuals, couples and families that were trying to cope with changes and challenges that were affecting their lives. I’m a licensed mental health counselor and a certified EMDR therapist. I have extensive advanced training in complex trauma, dissociation, complicated grief, anxiety disorders, and somatic techniques.
While this page of the website provides you with information about me, therapy is all about you. It’s about sustainable changes that you want to make in your life. We will work together to achieve your goals and help you live a more contented life.
