Psychotherapist - LCSW
If you are seeking positive changes in your life, I believe that I can help. I work with people to help them overcome obstacles and move in the direction of healing and change. Life can throw obstacles in our way–whether it be a difficult childhood, a painful relationship, an accident or illness. But it is often the internal obstacles we create in response to these external events that can really block us. The truth is we are often more resilient than we realize and more freedom is available. We can get past our pasts.
I specialize in two powerful therapeutic approaches–Brainspotting and EMDR–that facilitate the mind and body’s natural capacity to heal. While talk therapy can help, Brainspotting and EMDR go beyond talking to directly access where traumatic memories are stored in brain—leading to greater insight, release, and relief. I use these modalities to treat PTSD, anxiety, and other trauma based issues. I also use Expansion Brainspotting to help people move beyond creative and performance blocks.
My clients have described me as “genuine,” “down to earth”, and “effective.” Those who had been originally been intimidated or skeptical by the idea of “therapy” have told me that they were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they were with me and how helpful the therapy was to them.
