Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a firm believer in the mind, body, spirit connection, and as a result take a very holistic approach with my clients. This model emphasizes cultivating a warm and supportive environment, which creates the conditions necessary to facilitate the natural tendency of human beings to move toward wellness. It recognizes that the path to healing, joy and contentment, is an inward journey, which seeks to allow clients to shift from a sense that they are helpless and at the mercy of their circumstances, to a position of empowerment. I am honored to assist and accompany people on this path toward realizing their true potential, and rediscovering who they were always meant to be. I work with a broad spectrum of clients, dealing with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, grief, PTSD, emotional trauma, anger management, transition, OCD, ADD or ADHD, etc.. I also enjoy working with couples, helping them to improve their communication and bring joy and passion back into their relationship. I integrate a wide range of therapeutic techniques into my work with clients, and am particularly interested in the latest research in neurobiology, which proves the brain’s ability to literally “rewire” itself. This process, which is known as neuroplasticity, can be used to create significant and lasting positive change. Through the teaching of various mindfulness practices, I give clients the tools to harness and put to work the power of this process. In addition to a variety of traditional talk therapy modalities, I am also trained in cutting-edge mind-body trauma techniques, including EMDR, the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) and Brainspotting. In my work with couples, I primarily utilize two of the most research based approaches, EFT and Gottman. Although my training is quite varied, I focus on the particular needs of each individual client, and work collaboratively to tailor a treatment plan that will help them achieve their goals.

I have helped hundreds of couples recognize the hidden obstacles that cause pain in their relationship and learn the skills needed to deepen the quality of their relationship as well as resolve conflict. For over twenty five years I have been working with heterosexual and gay couples. I do not believe in a one -size- fits- all approach to therapy.
