My focus is on helping you heal from whatever challenges you are facing. I'm experienced in working with individuals facing the challenges of recovery from addiction, including drug, alcohol, food, gambling and other addictive behaviors, as well as co-dependency, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, women's issues, and life transitions.
Clients work with with me on improving self-esteem, developing self-love and self-trust, and enhancing self-image. Body image concerns, as well as healing from trauma and abuse, gaining spiritual clarity, and developing healthy relationships are also primary topics in treatment. I use experiential exercises, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), visualization and relaxation techniques, as well as teaching new coping skills to help my clients ensure that the insights they gain in therapy result in changed behaviors and an enhanced quality of life.
