What's holding you back in life? Depression?Anxiety?Stress?Grief?Divorce?Relationships?Trauma?Self-esteem?Cutting?Eating Disorder? The couples approach I use has a 75% success rate vs. other approaches that average a 35% success rate. I am passsionate about working with teens, adults, couples, families, parents,groups,& LGBT clients.
I provide a safe environment for you to work through the "stuckness," believe in yourself, develop your authentic voice, & gain a deeper understanding of the patterns that keep you trapped. Other specialty areas include bipolar, OCD, mid-life transitions, women's issues,sexual abuse, anger, spiritual issues, & pre-marital counseling.
Has past couples counseling failed? I am passionate about couples counseling & have extensive post graduate training in Dr. Sue Johnson't EFT approach. See http://www.iceeft.com. Rather than following typical approaches that focus on surface issues of conflict & communication, EFT works at a deeper level creating lasting change.
