As a therapist (with 25 years of experience) I endeavor to help my clients gain both the practical skills (often using those found in the CBT or DBT framework) as well as insight into the underlying issues that may be leading to their distress. I draw from various schools of psychological thought - including psychodynamic, supportive, existential, behavioral, developmental and family systems. I am a trained and certified trauma informed therapist and use EMDR when appropriate for resolving past or present trauma.

Treatment Approach

  • EMDR
Approach Description: Therapeutically I borrow from several different schools of thought. When doing psychotherapy I tend to work from a perspective that includes practical skills (such as CBT or DBT) and believe many people can find relief within a brief time frame.
