As a therapist, my goal is to work with you to uncover your true potential, innate healing and tap into the awareness that life is worth celebrating. We can't change difficult situations of the past, but we can work together to better understand how you have been impacted and work through challenges in the present. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, in a warm and supportive environment, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns and/or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life today.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or are ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Trauma Therapy: Unprocessed trauma experiences leave us with symptoms and feelings that impact us painfully often affecting the quality of our mood and/or relationships. If you have experienced trauma, either ongoing or as a one time event, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique that has been shown to be an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Couple Therapy: At times our partner has the ability to hurt us in ways no one else can. In stressed marriages partners may feel lonely, angry and sad. It can be hard to bridge the distance and experience the closeness that brought you together in the first place. I work with you to understand your 'relationship dance' by understanding the emotional triggers and subsequent reactions that create the steps of your 'dance'. Using compassion, insight and communication tools,couples are helped to feel emotionally closer to and more understood by their partner.
