Business Info edit info

SERVICES: Individual, family and couples counseling with adults and children in a quiet comfortable setting. I provide a general practice of counseling with special emphasis on the use of EMDR as a tool to assist in accelerating the processing and healing of some clients.

PHILOSOPHY: I believe that the root of all disorders and discomfort lies in the traumas (however small or large) that we experienced in childhood. Through experiencing these traumas, we developed negative beliefs about ourselves that interfere with healthy functioning in the present. Therapy consists of processing these traumas and replacing our negative beliefs with positive ones and trying out our new beliefs in the “real world” with the support of the therapist.
I believe that all persons who come to counseling are striving toward health and are entitled to my highest regard no matter where they are in their healing process. I am a facilitator and “cheerleader.” My clients are the heroes and heroines whom I admire and respect and from whom I continue to learn.

OFFICE HOURS: Monday through Friday 9AM through 7PM. Emergency weekend appointments available at no extra charge.

TELEPHONE AVAILABILITY: All clients have my home telephone number and are encouraged to call between sessions as needed. If I am unavailable, clients may leave a message and I will return calls as soon as possible.
