Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I want to help my clients discover their internal and external resources, and create a toolbox of skills needed to deal with our daily and post-trauma stressors. I want to help my clients become more resilient when confronted with life's difficulties. I work collaboratively with my clients to help change negative and distorted beliefs, and reduce/eliminate harmful behaviors that interfere with goals. Some clients have reported more meaningful relationships, more purposeful and productive work, and greater enjoyment in life's activities. I use EMDR, an intervention that utilizes the natural healing abilities of the body and brain, by allowing painful memories to lose intensity and become a neutral memory of a past event. I use EMDR to treat clients with PTSD, grief/loss, adjustment issues, anxiety or panic, addictions, anger, pain, phobias, sleep problems, and low self-esteem. I offer affordable counseling and psychotherapy on Melrose Avenue, with lots of street parking, I see clients on Monday afternoons and evenings, and Thursday mornings. Prospective clients are encouraged to call me to connect by phone before making an appointment.
