Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
I am gifted at balancing my direct, no-nonsense approach with more gentle support when needed. My clients frequently tell me I helped them feel comfortable expressing themselves openly right from the start. Feeling safe is vital to achieving lasting change. I use my humor and my compassion to connect with my clients, and often find that the inevitable tough moments are balanced by our laughter.
I excel in my work with teens and college-aged individuals. I often help students who are seeking to improve their interpersonal relationships, build confidence in navigating social situations, or manage body image issues.
I am also dedicated to my work helping couples to deepen physical and emotional intimacy and recover from past hurts or betrayal.
I am passionate about helping individuals who are concerned about mood instability or newly diagnosed with Bipolar Mood Disorder and their family members to understand and cope with their symptoms and live a passionate, fulfilling life.

It can be a very cool experience and often valuable gift to give yourself by having an hour each week to talk about what's going on in your world. This is an hour where a neutral person, who you likely won't otherwise see in daily life, will give you undivided attention and support.
Having a therapist all to yourself and having an hour a week to work on you can help you to become a better employee, partner, friend, athlete, or simply a better human being.
