Individual Psychotherapy

I work with individuals who are seeking growth in many different areas, including working through trauma; creating emotional well-being; leading a more developed and purposeful life; relationship concerns; addressing and healing from what has lead to symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, depression, mood instability, dissociation, anxiety, sleep disturbance, addiction, concentration and focus difficulties, self-defeating and self-destructive behaviors, concerns with self-esteem, food behavior and body relationship.


Brainspotting is a psychotherapy technique that facilitates processing and releasing experiences and symptoms, especially those out of reach of the conscious mind. The brainspot is the physiological subsystem where an emotional experience is held in the form of memory. The brainspot is located by pairing eye position with both internally experienced and externally observed reflexive responses, such as an eye blink.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a highly researched technique for treating trauma. EMDR involves using bilateral brain stimulation, i.e. through eye movement, sound, or tapping, to facilitate the processing and resolution of trauma and overwhelming feelings.
