You face relationship stress or crisis, life transition, anxiety, trauma or an eating disorder. A warm, interactive, dedicated therapist, I use a cutting edge, whole person approach (neuroscience, mindfulness, attachment repair, trauma rescripting (EMDR)). We work to replace automatic reactivity to emotional triggers with authenticity & (self-)compassion. You learn to understand, express, & advocate for your genuine needs & core values - to feel more intimately connected to self & others. Clients say I "get it," and am "encouraging & uplifting." They feel seen, guided, & empowered. Even clients who have seen many other therapists find new hope, resources, & perspective in our work.
My specialties: (1) Building Healthier Relationships (Individuals & Couples), (2) Recovery From Affairs, (3) Life Transitions, Making Difficult Decisions (4) Anxiety Disorders (6) Traumas, PTSD, EMDR Therapy, (7) Partners & Children of Narcissists, (8) Insecure Attachment - e.g., love addicts, avoidants. (9) Mindfulness-Based Therapies for Stress, Pain, Eating Disorders, Addictive Lifestyle
