Here to help. Change is not easy, and you don’t have to do it alone.
As a compassionate, experienced, and skilled psychotherapist, my goal is to help you to begin finding solutions and to feel better, providing safe and affirming guidance in addressing concerns that might be related to:
- Family of Origin/Childhood relational trauma (such as emotional neglect, sexual/physical abuse)
- Anxiety and Depression
- Stress, Self-Esteem, Coping, Assertiveness
- Life Transitions and Adjustment Reactions
- Grief and Loss
- Relationship conflict and distress
- LGBTQ+ issues
My work with individuals is integrative and considers many approaches that might be effective for each client. I provide an empathic, warm, and relational stance that makes use of an effective, research-based model of therapy, AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) that can be particularly helpful in healing a history of relational trauma.
Research evidence demonstrates that AEDP is effective with reducing depression and a variety of psychological symptoms, negative thoughts, emotional dysregulation, interpersonal problems, as well as improving positive psychological functioning including self-compassion and a sense of well-being (https://aedpinstitute.org)
In addition, I am a participating clinician in the AEDP Institute’s research study. Clients are seen short-term for 16-sessions which are focused and targeted towards change. Potential clients are asked to answer short questionnaires prior to treatment and online after each session with an agreement for sessions to be videotaped. A reduced fee is available and offered for participation in the study. Please ask me if you think you or someone you know might be interested. Here is a link to the AEDP Research website for more information. I welcome all inquires. Thank you for your consideration and time. http://www.aedpresearch.com/information-for-prospective-patients.html
