I counsel individuals dealing with behavioral problems, difficult transitions, losses, and traumatic events that cause emotional suffering and interfere with their life. I combine principles from the Cognitive-Behavioral and the Existential-Humanistic, as well as Integrative Psychotherapy approaches like EMDR. I believe that an authentic, respectful and empathic relationship is the key to successful outcomes in treatment. I believe in building on individual strengths to help my clients regain a sense of purpose,self worth, and love. I believe that people have the potential to deal effectively with their problems and I am honored to accompany them in finding this inner ability to heal.
