Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment that focuses on stimulating the brain to process previously insufficiently processed disturbing memories. EMDR has been used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, low self-esteem, addictions, eating disorders and impulse control problems. In addition to EMDR, I also utilize mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, interpersonal process and dialectical behavioral approaches to treatment.
I approach therapy with curiosity, professionalism, authenticity and a willingness to collaborate with you through your treatment process. I want to learn about your experiences, what troubles you, and partner with you to find effective ways of addressing your concerns. I see therapy as a process where you and I bring our distinct expertise to bear to help you meet your needs.
I provide individual counseling to persons age 21 and older for a variety of concerns including grief, LGBTQ identity concerns, trauma and abuse, goal-setting, ADHD, workplace challenges, career issues, stress management, weight management, self-esteem and identity concerns.
Telemental health (also known as telehealth) involves conducting therapy sessions over the phone or using video technology. I primarily provide telemental health services via HIPAA-compliant video software to Arizona residents.
I don't provide the following: court-mandated treatment, pastoral counseling, prescribe medication, neurological and/or personality assessment, couples or family counseling, disability assessments, forensic assessments, severe substance/alcohol use or dependence, personality disorders treatment, and legal consultation.
