Introduction:
It is my goal as a psychotherapist to help every individual find the internal clarity they need to live their best life. Working together we accomplish this through various different therapeutic interventions and techniques.

While my therapeutic orientation can primarily be described as "experiential," I believe we each have undiscovered (and sometimes discovered!) elements within ourselves that contribute to difficulties in our relationships with our loved ones, at work, and even with perfect strangers. I am also working on certification in neuropsychotherapy, "brain training" for transformational change in a unique methodology called "Coherence Therapy."

For family therapy I subscribe to the concept that "the family is an emotional unit, and there are many complex interactions." (Bowen) Together we identify how the family system is functioning, and work through the various elements - including sibling positions, emotional cut-offs, differentiation of self, and more.

Having worked with animals in therapeutic roles for the last 10 years (most notably, Pet Assisted Therapy in hospital trauma centers). I have gained insight into the amazing way that these beings have an innate ability to heal. Over the last few years, this form of treatment has gained more recognition. In June 2013, I will be EAGALA certified as an Equine Therapist and begin using the EAGALA model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy/Learning as part of my practice. If you are interested in learning more about this fascinating therapeutic process, please visit EAGALA's website: http://www.eagala.org/
