Practice Description:
Teletherapy sessions and online EMDR available for support and anxiety relief.

Welcome. You are not alone. With over 20 years experience counseling individual adults, I can help you feel better and find emotional peace and clarity. Often we seek therapy when going through tough times. We want our life to be fulfilling and happy. Yet, sometimes we end up in the same situations despite our best efforts to change. Given the current pandemic crisis, issues of anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and relationships are affected more than ever. You may be feeling scared, isolated, and alone. Your sense of security and safety is shaken, and you are anxious about the new normal. Many people right now are carrying an underlying grief and fears about if our life will go back to the way it was before.

As a licensed psychotherapist in long-term private practice, and college psychology professor, I can guide you with experience, wisdom, and compassion. My style is warm, thoughtful, and interactive. I believe that people have great capacity for growth and that crisis can be an opportunity for positive change.

I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral skills for communication, emotional tolerance, rapid anxiety relief, and better access to your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. I also use EMDR, guided visualization, energy work, and mindfulness meditation techniques for rapid relief of stress and trauma. In therapy, we explore your life in order to fully understand you together. We examine how your experiences in life create meanings that can later guide your choices and responses. We work together to help you tolerate difficult emotions, and understand the unconscious reasons behind your choices. The aim is to create balance in your life, and help you make more successful and empowered life decisions.

I believe that therapy is a safe nurturing space in which you are deeply understood, while being supported towards significant life change.
