My nearly 35 years of experience as a psychotherapist enables me to offer effective individualized psychotherapeutic care. I treat numerous mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders and general problems in living using evidence based psychotherapy. I create a warm and active space in which to assist my clients in building their life worth living. All counseling services are currently being provided in a Telehealth format.
My treatment approach is active and evidence based. I approach all of my clients with compassion and with an active coaching and encouraging style. I bring compassion, as well as my years of experience to bear in working with my clients. I align with my clients highest and best selves and with the conviction that they can heal and recover.
I have been fortunate to train with leaders in my field. I am an intensively trained DBT therapist and have had the honor of being trained by Marsha Linehan. I am certified in EMDR and was initially trained by EMDR creator Francine Shapiro. Additionally as a Conscious Uncoupling Coach I have had the privilege of working directly with creator Katherine Woodward Thomas for a number of years.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) provides clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. DBT specifically focuses on providing therapeutic skills in four key areas. First, mindfulness focuses on improving an individual's ability to accept and be present in the current moment. Second, distress tolerance is geared toward increasing a person’s tolerance of negative emotion, rather than trying to escape from it. Third, emotion regulation covers strategies to manage and change intense emotions that are causing problems in a person’s life. Fourth, interpersonal effectiveness consists of techniques that allow a person to communicate with others in a way that is assertive, maintains self-respect, and strengthens relationships.
Your breakup does not need to ruin your life, damage your children or define your future. In fact, your breakup can be healing, kind, loving and respectful for yourself and all involved. Most of us would aspire to an amicable ending. Yet we all know that most breakups are incredibly heartbreaking and hostile.
Too often, hurt people hurt people. Conscious Uncoupling is for anyone that is suffering from a heart that is hurting because of the loss of a love relationship. So whether you are in the midst of a break up right now, still struggling struggling with unresolved pain from a past break up, or anticipating a possible break up and want to insure that it goes well, Conscious Uncoupling is for you.
