As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

90 minute tele-interview evaluation which will gather a detailed personal history and explore current symptoms and stressors. Upon completion of the session I will walk you through the next steps.

Mindfulness is the the practice of focusing and paying attention to the present moment and it is one of the key strategies to reducing stress. Often people try to deal with their stress by fighting with themselves. They either ignore or suppress what is happening or they become overwhelmed while focusing on their problems. Neither of these approaches are effective. By learning mindfulness and relaxation techniques you can begin to manage and control your stress and anxiety symptoms. A mindfulness practice is like going to the mental gym. With 15-30 minutes of practice a day you will be in a much healthier place to effectively problem solve the difficulties that may arise in your day to day life.
EMDR is a short-term therapy to resolve symptoms of a specific traumatic event using bilateral stimulation of both the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This stimulation paired with a targeted visualization of the event helps people to process through and resolve the lingering negative effects.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
