Message to clients

I provide a safe and comfortable setting in which you can work to determine and accomplish your goals, minimize stress, and learn to identify triggers so that you can regain control of your emotions and reach a level balance in your life. We are partners in this process and will work together to create a road map that is appropriate for your needs using tools such as education, support, and direction.
My approach is holistic and client centered. I believe in recognizing one's natural skills while creating strategies to reduce discomfort. I specialize in adjustment issues, depression, and anxiety. I am also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which provides fast relief to many symptoms including those related to anxiety, trauma, PTSD, and depression.
We will look at your mind/body connection because having a better understanding of this will lead to a reduction of physical/emotional pain. It is my hope that my clients live the life they have always wanted to.
