A happy life is your birthright. Together in a respectful and collaborative relationship we can determine what prevents you from the experience of life you want and were intended to have. I keep up to date with the latest research in psychotherapy and brain neurology and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, unstable personal or work relationships. I am trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) which is the only non-medicinal therapy in effectively treating trauma and post traumatic stress disorder.

Did you know that treating OCD, BFRBS, and Tics with talk therapy rarely works? It's true. Have you ever gone to a therapist and wondered why you weren't getting better? Or felt like something was wrong with you for not managing your symptoms? It is not uncommon for people with OCD to go for years before finding effective treatment! The gold standard for OCD treatment is empirically based Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. The same is true for BFRB's, Anxiety, Tics. These all require specialized treatments that target your symptoms directly so you can get better quickly.

My goal in therapy is to show you compassion. I hope that through my compassionate example you will learn to be gentle with yourself as you go through life transitions that make you question your life decisions and how you cope with obstacles. As you make your way through changes that could include family disruptions and loss, learning how to end addictions to substances, or adjusting to health problems, acknowledging ways you have been able to find strength and resolve problems will be vital to finding joy and meaning in your day-to-day life.
