Counseling Services

I work collaboratively with my clients to help them achieve their goals.  Since everyone is different and everyone has different goals when coming to therapy, I use different approaches with each client.  With couples and families I generally focus on the patterns of interactions that keep them stuck in a repetitive pattern of conflict, and we identify ways out of these cycles. With individuals I use the therapeutic relationship to identify the obstacles that keep them from achieving their goals and work with them to find new and more positive ways of reaching them.

The latest research has demonstrated that we cannot separate the body from the mind or the mind from the body.  If your emotions are getting in your way of leading a less stressful and rewarding life then we can find ways to manage your emotions and channel them in a more positive way.

Domestic violence and anger management – I have experience working with individuals and couples who come to me with problems of domestic violence and anger management.

Trainings I have received

Eye Movements Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR) – a technique which when combined with other therapeutic modalities has been proven to reduce the effects of trauma.  In many cases EMDR reduces the length of trauma treatment.

Emotion Focused Couples Treatment – This modality has been effective in helping couples with most presenting problems.

I am a trained facilitator in Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP TM) – information about this program is available at

Emotional Freedom Technique– This modality falls under the category of alternative therapy approaches and is based on the ancient principles of acupuncture.  EFT is a simple tapping procedure that gently realigns the body’s energy system, without the discomfort of needles.  It currently being studied by ACEP.   Visit for more information.
