Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in guiding adolescents and individuals through the perilous journey of addictive compulsive behaviors. By utilizing a technique called Motivational Interviewing, I help individuals, couples and families enhance motivation to return to more functional ways of coping with life and its stressors. I also specialize in trauma, mood disorders and family systems issues. In treating trauma, I utilize EMDR and EFT to help reintegrate the mind and body toward optimal health.
