Are you struggle with anxiety, worry, and stress so much so that it interferes with your well-being and sense of inner peace? I offer an effective, highly-researched form of treatment called EMDR (which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). This form of therapy combines thoughts, feelings and body experiences to "unstick" negative memories or experiences that are at the root cause of distress. Contact me for more information. Let's tackle this together.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

As an experience psychologist, I can help people who struggle with nervousness, excessive worry, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings; sudden and intense feelings of panic. Through specific evidence-based interventions as a certified Mindfulness-Based Therapist, and guided by the principles of neuroplasticity, I help people mindfully navigate these painful emotions and experiences in a healthy way.

In addition to being a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I am also a ceritified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, and a certified Structural Integration Practitioner as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Using these body-based technologies in what we call a "bottom up" approach to anxiety and stress is a lot more effective than the "top down" approach of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That's because anxiety and stress are artifacts of the reptillian brain and limbic system not the neocortex where CBT works.

I take a practical approach to treating anxiety and stress. I help you identify the sources of anxiety if you do not already know them. I support you in learning skills to regulate your emotions and increase awareness of body sensations and experiences in order to help you be able to control and reduce feelings of anxiety. I also use a combination of exposure therapy, if appropriate, and adjustment to lifestyle to help you reduce or eliminate sources of anxiety or stress. I know that every experience of anxiety or stress is unique and I will work with you to develop a plan of support tailored to your needs. I will provide a safe environment for you to challenge and overcome your fear/stress

You may have incessant thoughts racing through your mind, you can't stop analyzing, and you are stuck in the future catastrophizing about possible outcomes, or ruminating about your past choices and life experiences. Your body state is heightened and on-the-go. You try to relax because people tell you so but it doesn’t work. You wonder why you can't just 'let things go" and "go with the flow" just like many other people do. With anxiety, we get stuck either in the past or the future.
