I am a psychotherapist and marriage counselor specializing in relationship issues for individuals and couples. I approach each client with acceptance and a sincere desire to help. As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist I have extensive knowledge and experience in the complex dynamics of couples' issues, as well as their challenges and how to move them out of these. I have helped to guide the most conflicted relationships to new, rewarding places of hope and contentment.
My other specialty is trauma. As a trauma therapist, Certified Hypnotherapist, trained and skilled EMDR practicioner and experience using cutting-edge, body-psychotherapies, I use my skills to shift my clients out of a state of persistent reactivity into a more open, receptive, calm and relaxed experience of themselves. I teach clients the skills they need to take home to continue transforming their state of being and relationships between sessions. By learning new skills, they become capable, sometimes for the first time, to give and receive the validation and support they seek from one another, without the intense levels of stress.
I have mastered the ability to identify quickly, the strengths of a relationship and each individual and in turn am able to help my clients access and build on these. At the same time, I gently guide them to understand and overcome the obstacle that may challenge their progress and relationships, making new sense of what once seemed so perplexing.
By understanding their conflicts with a new perspective, couples begin to learn how to communicate and empathize with one another with the love and support they deserve and have been longing for. With my help, the compassion, understanding and acceptance that couples yearn for soon becomes a new and exciting experience and lasting part of their connection to one another.
Individuals acquire new levels of confidence and ability to stay on a path of growth from overcoming past hurts, allowing for growth and successful living as well as new opportunities in their lives.
After a short time of working with me, many couples who believed separation or divorce to be the only solution, experience new feelings of trust and relief. The fun and passion from the earlier days of their courtship that seemed gone forever are renewed, bringing the fun and passion back. I consider sharing in this process of transformation an honor and privilege. My work with others is truly my heart's delight.
