I work with individual clients who are interested in taking a look at the ways they could live their lives more fully. In this work I believe that a thorough understanding of the past is a luxury but not at all a necessity in growing toward psychological health and moving toward goals. I begin with concentrated listening but also provide direction and instruction to empower my clients to do things differently and attain improved results. Toward this end, I use concepts from eastern traditions, current research on positivity and the brain, and modalities gathered from a variety of therapy pioneers. I also use an assortment of psychological tools and assessment. In addition, I have training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and processing) for decreasing clients’ sensitivity to traumatic events and memories.
