Description of Practice
Self-Description: I specialize in treating depression and anxiety that stem from past events and may be triggered in the present. EMDR is particularly effective in giving people new and healing perspectives on their experience. In addition to EMDR I use Ego State work (sometimes called the Conference Room technique), Compassionate Communication (or Nonviolent Communication), The Work of Byron Katie and other techniques that help reduce stress and improve relationships. Another area of focus is support for problem-solving and decision-making, related to parenting, relationships, life transitions and other issues.

In my years of working with couples, I've found that relationships can be transformed by insight and clear communication. Helping people develop compassion for themselves and others is a foundation of my practice.
