I provide individual therapy for adolescents and adults (ages 12 and up) using integrative, evidence-based therapeutic approaches. Therapy is a collaborative process between us in which we explore the meaning of your challenges,suffering and internalized messages that get in the way of living the life you want. Together we will create a plan for therapy that addresses your needs.
Those of us who have Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder have unique challenges that go beyond what traditional therapy provides. You might struggle with paying attention, keeping organized, feeling restless, feeling overwhelmed, feeling as though you are missing something, and maybe feeling like you’re never good enough.
In addition to these challenges you might also have difficulty slowing your mind down, and may feel sad, depressed, angry or misunderstood. Perhaps you become anxious because you find even small tasks overwhelming. You try hard to meet others’ expectations and often are told to try harder, or that you are doing ‘it’ wrong, or you need to pay attention.
Living with ADHD can be really hard. It can also be rewarding. Did you know that people who have ADHD are often very intelligent, are creative in nature, have a great sense of humor and feel emotions more intensely than those without? It’s true!
In order to embrace these awesome qualities it helps to learn how to tackle all your needs. I will help you understand and manage your emotions; learn how to complete tasks and organize your life in a way that works for you; recognize how ADHD and messages from others impacts your self esteem; and learn to take charge of your life.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative therapy approach that has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma. Trauma is not limited to violence. We experience traumas throughout our lives whether it be through emotional abuse or neglect, negative beliefs about your self, experiencing loss, seeking help and having a negative experience. We also experience trauma by witnessing trauma of others.
EMDR offers relief by reducing and removing the emotional charge associated with trauma. The traumatic experience becomes part of our narrative, rather than controlling our lives.
I provide both 50 minute and 90 minute EMDR sessions for individuals 15 years and older.
I believe wholly in the therapeutic process and the importance of therapists asking for and receiving help themselves. This is hard work we do, and often we take on the emotions of those we help. We can easily become worn out, disorganized, feel overwhelmed, feel disconnected from others, seek unhealthy ways of coping to avoid – we are human. As clinicians, we also have unique needs.
Compassion fatigue is very real and it impacts both our professional and personal lives. As helpers, it is important for us to take care of ourselves and be aware of how our work impacts our body and mind. I provide therapy for clinicians experiencing compassion fatigue, using ACT, mindfulness and EMDR to aid in this healing and re-energizing process.
I provide clinical consultation for clinicians licensed and unlicensed. I have extensive training in suicide intervention and loss and also ADHD.
