“Your power is in your choices.”

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I use a combination of clinical techniques and a bit of humor to help individuals reach their therapy goals. I enjoy working with individuals to reduce their stress and increase their problem solving and coping skills. I help individuals explore their choices and acquire tools to ease the stress of life.

 

I provide a supportive and relaxed atmosphere. I offer individual and group therapy using a blended approach of Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered and Solution Focused techniques.     

I also use Eye Movement Desensitizing  Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a therapeutic approach proven highly effective to reduce emotionally charged responses when remembering disturbing events. 

EXPERIENCE

 I have over 20 years of clinical experience. I have provided therapy in out-patient, intensive out-patient, partial hospital, residential, drug court and day support programs in community mental health and the private sector. I received Certification as a Substance Abuse Counselor in 1999. I help individuals identify triggers, explore the underlying reasons for usage and develop relapse prevention skills to achieve abstinence or harm reduction. I am a member of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). I am currently receiving supervision to become a Certified Sex Therapist to assist individuals explore their sexual issues and concerns.

MY APPROACH

When we meet for the first session, I will gather history to complete a comprehensive assessment. This helps me figure out what is going on and how I can help. This is also an opportunity for you to decide if you feel comfortable with me and my style. A good fit is essential. We will work together to make a plan to meet your goals. Clients have asked me why I became a Therapist. Well, every session is completely different because every individual is completely different. My job is to shine light on your situation so that you can clearly see your options. Watching individuals choose is  exciting. I truly believe your power is in your choices.
