Services & Areas of Expertise

I provide therapy services to teens, adults and couples dealing with the following issues:

TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES: Trauma can contribute to depression, anxiety, panic and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I effectively help individuals heal from traumatic experiences including child abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, psychological abuse, sexual assault, assault/other crimes, and natural disasters. In addition I work with veterans, police officers and other first responders experiencing “critical incident stress” from work related events. When suitable I treat individuals dealing with traumatic experiences using EMDR therapy. Learn more…

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES: Couples issues that I treat include dealing with infidelity, improving general communication skills, improving sexual communication skills, dealing with family of origin issues and helping couples adjust to and cope with unexpected changes or life stressors.
