I have worked as a therapist since 1991, and started my private practice in 1993. It became my life's passion to help individuals live happier, more fulfilled lives. My style is informed by psychodynamic therapy, Jungian and depth psychology, and positive psychology. I want to help people recognize and change counterproductive patterns in their lives. My experience nearly 25 years of experience helps me to fully understand clients with disordered eating, body image dissatisfaction, trauma, alcohol recovery, relationship issues, life transitions, anxiety, and depression. I want to assist people to develop newer, healthier patterns in their lives.
Talk therapy, dream analysis, EMDR, and SoulCollage can help people recognize unconscious patterns and help them work towards implementing healthier, more effective coping strategies. Exploring early childhood experiences is just part of it. It's also important to see what one can change and improve in the present,
Before I became a counselor, I spent 10 years in sales and marketing, which taught me about setting and achieving goals. My psychological training prepared me to help clients examine barriers to their success. My combined training gives me an advantage in helping individuals make the life transitions they desire.
