I believe the answers to your problems lie within you, and my job is to help you access your own healing power and resources. I love working with adults and older adolescents to help you deal with life transitions, losses, depression/ bipolar, anxiety, recent or childhood trauma (large or small), chronic pain/illness, or to improve performance in work, sports or the arts.
I work with couples or individuals on relationship issues. If a relationship has already ended, I can help you heal, and if you have children, I can help you stay focused on their well-being while you do so. I can also help you cope with parenting challenges.
I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT) to speed up processing and to provide you with tools you can use after therapy. I have found these techniques to be enormously successful in resolving trauma, anxieties, depression, and in removing blocks to overall well-being and success in life.
If you are still grieving over the death of a loved one over a year ago, I may be able to help you with Repair and Reattachment Therapy. See my "Related Links" page for more information on that.
I speak Spanish and have experience living within other cultures. I have insight into some issues of privilege, etc., and I enjoy working with members of cultures different from mine, including Native Americans, Black Americans, members of the military, the LGBT community and others.
