Individual psychotherapy provides a safe space for people to work through and overcome psychological problems such as addictions, anxiety, depression, avoidance, relationship issues, trauma, low self-esteem, etc. It is important to choose a therapist who is qualified to help you meet your goals and also maintains high ethical standards.
I specialize in working with parents and other family members dealing with a loved one who is struggling with an addiction and/or other behavioral or emotional problem and who is failing to engage in life successfully. I have extensive training and experience helping families gain practical and effective strategies in responding to the problem thereby changing old, maladaptive patterns.
As a Certified EMDR Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I have extensive training and experience in utilizing this powerful psychotherapy to help individuals suffering from unresolved trauma and other emotional and behavioral problems. I have used EMDR to treat complex PTSD, attachment issues, grief and loss, depression, addictions and eating disorders, dissociation, low self-esteem, phobias, and avoidance.
I am Intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and have worked with numerous individuals who experience emotional difficulties and who aim to improve their level of functioning and overall quality of life. While originally designed to treat suicidal behavior or borderline personality disorder, it has since then been adapted as an effective therapy for many other mental health problems such as eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, and mood disorders.
