My work is dedicated to helping you embrace who you are in order to live a more fulfilled and balanced life. I focus on developing your ability to understand the powerful connection between your mind and body. This insight facilitates a path toward healing from current and past life challenges. During the course of our work together, I will help you develop your “Emotional Intelligence” (an understanding of what motivates your feelings and actions) and acquire the tools that you need in order to overcome barriers which have blocked growth and change. Once you gain these necessary coping skills, you will find yourself more open to loving relationships, living in the present moment and creating a more fulfilling life.
While I am trained and experienced in addressing a multitude of mental health issues, I specialize in working with individuals coping with trauma, sensitive sexual issues, and challenges faced by LGBTQ individuals. I have acquired advanced training in EMDR, a non-invasive, research-proven approach to help individuals process and heal from trauma. (For more information about EMDR, see questions sections). In addition, I am a trained Sex Therapist who is experienced and comfortable treating sensitive sexual issues including, but not limited to, sexual dysfunction, low desire, sex addiction and open or non-tradittional relationships.
No matter what you come to work on, I will embrace who you are, and we will work together to achieve your goals. In the supportive, judgement-free, confidential atmosphere of my practice, you will learn to nurture yourself through aquisition of coping skils, self-awareness and heightened insight, and thus move towards the future that you desire.
