ADOLESCENTS From daily struggles to more serious mental health challenges, teenagers need unconditional positive regard while being challenged to grow. I help adolescents explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors while guiding discovery for healthy, adaptive, and satisfying life experiences they want for themselves. For trauma work, I provide EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and IFS/Ego State therapy.
ADULTS Although I draw from many therapy approaches, using EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Ego State Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and DBT techniquestend to be the most effective ways to quickly zero in each person’s thought patterns, solutions, and strengths. During our therapy sessions, we will acknowledge and honor your past while using it as our guide to reshape your present behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.
