Individual Therapy
  Making the choice to begin therapy is a big step towards self-improvement. Change is often scary and intimidating for many people. I provide a safe environment for you to process your thoughts, and work through life’s challenges.
 
    I can assist you with identifying and understanding why you keep falling into the same patterns of toxic and unhealthy relationships. Together we will work towards strengthening your sense of self, and building the tools you need to create healthy connections in the present and future.
 
           What have you done today that was kind to yourself?
      
    
Relationship Therapy
     Allow me to help you renew the love you and your partner once shared. Relationships take work, and a lot of it. I will help you and your partner to break through the walls of miscommunication, and lack of understanding. Together, I will teach you and your partner effective ways to build healthy intimacy, and trust.

     Additionally, I've completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and incorporate the highly-effective Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work.

     I can help you to repair, and create the healthy relationship you have always wished for.
    
Sexuality Issues
    Has your sex life lost luster? Do you find yourself avoiding sexual intimacy? Have you noticed recurrent arguments with your partner related to frequency of sex? If you answered yet to any of these questions, you could benefit from sex therapy.
 
  I am currently working towards the completion of my certification as a sex therapist under the supervision of Sally Valentine, Ph.D., LCSW, CST. That means I’ve received training specifically aimed at learning the dynamics of sexual intimacy and how to help improve them.

EMDR

       Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach which has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma. This integrative approach assists clients in the reprocessing of disturbing memories and cognitions leading to decreased distress.

        Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post-traumatic stress. However, clinicians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment for various other conditions as well, such as:
Panic attacks
Complicated grief
Dissociative disorders
Disturbing memories
Phobias
Performance anxiety
Stress reduction
Sexual and/or Physical abuse
