About Me

Who I Am
I work with men, women, students, and couples. My approach to therapy is client centered. I treat the whole person, not just a symptom profile of the person. Results from my work include symptom reduction and clients feeling more confident and focused. Clients also report not feeling so tied up internally, thus freeing them to be more alive and present, thus increasing quality of life experience.

I treat anxiety disorders related to relationship issues, separation anxiety, test taking anxiety, public speaking anxiety, phobias, and general anxiety and worry. I also treat PTSD, panic disorders, OCD, and social anxiety. I work from a perspective that is focused and strategic, combining principles of systems theory, cognitive theory and EMDR.
