Licensed Marriage Family Therapist
Psychotherapy with Couples, Teens, Adults
As an LMFT I am able to treat a multitude of complex issues, yet I have extended knowledge and training in the following areas:
*Couples therapy - I have completed the Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 Training. This is an evidence based couples therapy, working with both partners to create a plan for change and acceptance.
*Teens - dealing with academic & social pressures, self-harm, substance abuse, binge drinking, anxiety & depression.
*Family businesses - have a difficult and powerful dynamic that can be quite complex. I can work with the whole family or an individual member of the family in the business.
*Women and men diagnosed with chronic autoimmune illnesses, as these can be life altering, have a sudden onset, and can occur at a time in your life when you least expect it.
*Infertility and difficulty conceiving for women and couples. This is an extremely difficult process filled with uncertainty and grief for both partners.
*Postpartum Anxiety, OCD and Depression- I work with Postpartum women and couples as this is a very emotional and fragile time where support is needed even after the first few months with your baby. The adjustment period to new motherhood is challenging in many ways, up to and including the first year and beyond.
*EMDR- I am able to provide EMDR basic level 1. This is a trauma focused therapy which is based on extensive research on the brain and trauma.
I look forward to meeting you, and working through the healing process with you, your partner or your family.
