Overview

If you feel stuck in a rut, have lost that drive in your life or you just need help getting over a bump in the road, you are not alone. 

I have worked with a variety of people and age groups, including young professionals transitioning into the world of adulthood, college students, parents, families and adults with chronic severe mental illness. I can help you too.

I use a variety of evidence-based techniques to guide my clients from the feeling of being "stuck". I work with busy professionals and stay at home parents trying to manage depression and anxiety .

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the common and troubling emotions that we all experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling you can revive the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.

Life Transitions

  

Changes in life, no matter how good, can cause stress. Finishing high school, earning the grades necessary to get into college or changing a career after many dedicated years, are all big changes that can sometimes amplify our anxiety levels. Transitions and making changes in our lives can cause stress even in the most well-adjusted college bound students.

Relationships / Families

Relationship counseling is beneficial to families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection and work through difficult times.  I have been working with families and parents since 2007.

Models, Techniques and Approaches

There are many different models, techniques and approaches to therapy.  I use and have been trained in evidence-based therapies such as, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on both thoughts and behaviors. I am trained in solution-focused therapy which is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions. I have training in Community Resiliency Model (CRM) which has strategies for helping you to reduce your own stress as well as stressed out or upset children. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR therapy includes a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches.

EMDR

General Information

 EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.   (EMDR institute website)
