Depression, helplessness, anxiety, intense feelings or bad memories can be difficult to handle alone. If you are looking for compassion, to diminish or eliminate distressing symptoms, and add to you personal understanding of the source of your discomfort, then we may be a good match. Therapy works best with people who really want to explore themselves, change personal patterns and choices to best enhance their relationships, health, as well as work and school satisfaction. When a person desires to know his/her personal impact on others and themselves, they are empowered to make life choices.
My work experience has included adults and teenagers with simple or complex trauma, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and various forms of loss or death in relationships, and career loss. My backgound also includes working with management and leadership issues. My background includes leadership coaching in major corporations.
I alter the approach per person and problem. Generally focusing altering patterns and beliefs developed through a lifetime of learning is important. EMDR can diminish or eliminate negative self beliefs, traumatic symptoms, flashbacks and intense emotional reactions, negative self beliefs, performance anxiety in work, school or sports.
