Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a seasoned Marriage and Family Therapist with extensive training and experience in working with trauma related issues including childhood physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, verbal abuse, attachment disorders, etc. These types of issues can compromise the regulation of emotional arousal, causing persons to either over-react or shut down emotionally, presenting challenges to the development of healthy and nurturing relationships and especially impact parenting skills. I work with individuals and couples to develop skills that can help them be more present emotionally and thus more effective in relationships with partners, children and others.

I am trained in the cutting edge treatment modalities of EMDR and Level I Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma. I am warm, compassionate and interactive.
