You are probably reading this because something is not quite right in your life--either you are not feeling happy, you are feeling weighed down by fears and anxiety that make life difficult, or you are finding it hard to let go of and move beyond upsetting experiences that you have had, either recently or long ago. You may also be reading this wondering if you are alone or if others struggle with similar things. More importantly, you are curious if there is a way to find some relief, if there is a way out of this unhappiness and pain.
Many, many people struggle with these problems, so you are not alone. We all go through unhappy times. But there are often things that can be done that can help--to limit or reduce the misery and pain, to let go of the past, and to find more peace.
Having learned many different treatment approaches in my 25-year career as a psychologist, I believe it is important to choose the right approach for each person. I am skilled in psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy, and am a certified EMDR therapist with a specialty in treating trauma.
