Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
"Trauma can be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required."

"All emotions have a job - to bring something to our attention, to give us information about our world, sometimes to give us the physical energy to take action. I see my role as a therapist would be to help you better understand yourself, and when it fits to teach you tools and skills so that you can be effective in your life. I can be a guide and an ally through many challenges - these include depression and anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, caregiving, life-threatening illnesses, grief and loss. Whatever emotion or situation led you to seek help, you can use it to heal your life."

"Failing to get help, many divorced people regret that they gave up too soon. As a marriage specialist for over two decades, you can trust that you are in the care of a competent advocate for your marriage. Every marriage faces the power struggle -it's supposed to happen. Too many quit their marriage at this crucial time. Not giving yourselves the opportunity to work through this painful stage could be a tragedy because this very stage carries the seeds of true character growth and healing. An affair, dishonesty, conflict, or stress can rob you of the feelings of attunement."

""As above, so below". The ancient saying reminds us that the ways in which we experience life and encounters with others are based on patterns of behavior and beliefs about ourselves in the world that have developed over time. Often these patterns and beliefs serve us well, other times they create inner turmoil, frustration, and confusion. As a therapist, I am committed to the facilitating the process for you of discovering unconscious patterns and beliefs, how they have been beneficial or harmful, and learning to make consciously informed responses to the problematic situations in life that you are facing."
