Welcome to my page. It may be turbulent time for you and I'm glad you are reaching out.
Therapy is a safe place to address a wide variety of issues. I specialize in helping those with traumatic backgrounds of all kinds; emotional abuse, sexual violation, and physical abuse, domestic violence, severe humiliation and the loss of a loved one just to name a few. Aside from complex trauma and PTSD I also focus on treating the anxiety disorders which include OCD, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Phobia and daily extreme anxiety.
Whether you are dealing with an anxiety provoking life transition, Depression, the trauma of loss, or suffering from a severe anxiety disorder, I would love to help. I have been a psychotherapist for over 18 years, and have specialized training in a variety of modalities including CBT, EMDR, Existential Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory and Behavioral Approaches for anxiety disorders.
I tailor treatment to suit your specific needs. Many people benefit from a combination of approaches which always includes a sound, nurturing therapeutic relationship that you can always count on. My first priority as a therapist is to help you feel comfortable enough to confront your deepest fears, most guarded secrets, and most painful emotions.
If It is couple's therapy you are looking for, I am also an experienced couples therapist, and have helped couples of all orientations with issues including, but not limited to, domestic violence, cultural differences, divorce, unfaithfulness, sexual problems, parenting, and finding common ground through communication.
