Clients come to me with a variety of needs that are best met through exploring and developing relevant insights and life skills, releasing painful emotions and memories, or tapping into their own deeper selves. Clients, from a wide variety of backgrounds are seen in individual, family or group counseling sessions based on their needs and preferences. Many clients have already been in therapy and come to me because they still have things to work on that they have been unsuccessful at achieving through traditional talk therapy.

How people benefit from therapy depends on the reasons why they initially seek therapy. However, generally, a person can expect to know him/herself better, feel more confident and have more a greater sense of appreciation and self-acceptance. At the end of therapy, a client can expect to feel positive emotions and emotional freedom more often. In addition, a person will develop more stability, self-knowledge, and control over emotions such as sadness, anxiety, anger, grief, and worry. He/she is likely to be better able to achieve personal and relational goals; to problem solve difficult situations; to feel more satisfied with his\her life and relationships; to be less influenced by past traumas and/or struggles; to know his/her opinions and voice them; and to grow during life transitions and challenges. Children and adolescents will also behave in more age appropriate and adaptive ways, feel more confident about themselves and their relationships, have more positive emotions, manage difficult emotions more adaptively, communicate effectively, and be able to achieve their goals.
I am a licensed therapist with advanced training in both traditional and non-traditional psychology. My various degrees, licenses, and training in Clinical Art Therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), Psychodrama, DBT (Dialectic Behavioral Therapy) and Spiritual Psychology
allow my clients many opportunities in which to access and process unconscious and conscious material successfully. My concept of healing is to achieve the most profound and effective treatment in the shortest period of time with the least amount of distress.
