We all face challenging and overwhelming times in our lives. These include realizing we are unhappy with life as it is; concern we’ll never be able to live the life we want in order to be happy; stress; grief and loss; unresolved trauma, as well as other concerns. I use an eclectic, integrated approach to treatment that fits the unique needs of each client. I offer a safe, supportive environment and consider it an honor to work with clients toward achieving the changes they want to make.
I have worked in the mental health field for over seventeen years, in private practice, hospital and treatment center settings. In addition to individual and couples counseling, I have facilitated trauma resolution groups and co-facilitated weekend trauma intensives.
I am passionate about using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients heal from trauma, anxiety, phobia and other issues. I am EMDR Certified and having been doing EMDR therapy since 2001. I am currently an EMDR Consultant in Training, helping other therapists complete their basic training and become certified in EMDR. As a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, I enjoy assisting counselors-in-training as they become adept in helping clients and discovering their paths as counselors.
I am dedicated to helping clients heal from past wounds and overcome personal challenges so they are able to live a fulfilling life. I offer weekend appointments in addition to regular weekday office hours. I work with adults and couples in both individual and group counseling.
