With compassion and listening, I will work with you to identify your underlying issues, help you to clarify your beliefs, and help you to release limiting beliefs and behavioral patterns. My goal is to support you, to deepen your capacity for self-reflection, acceptance, and life purpose. I will honor your strengths and help you to work through life transitions.
In addition to private practice, I have worked in prisons, psychiatric facilities, all levels of addiction, in domestic violence programs, child welfare, parenting programs, and extensively with community providers. I offer traditional counseling, couples, hypnosis, and EMDR (trauma specific) counseling. I try to teach people neuro science of the brain and the mind body connection. I can offer skill building specific information (e.g., domestic violence, communications, coping, what medication management, inner child work, family of origin work, addiction treatment etc.). You simple let me know your style of counseling that you want and I will provide. Thank you!
