HOW I CAN HELP YOU
Your anxiety will get better as you learn new ways to care for yourself. You are worth this effort.
I believe in the mind-body-spirit connection. I teach my clients mindfulness practices that help them cultivate more peace in their lives. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals. In my counseling practice, based on what clients present with, I often use these therapies: Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as “Tapping”), EFT (Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy), Rapid Resolution Therapy, Guided Imagery, Cognitive / Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused therapy methods.
I’ve been practicing yoga for over 16 years, and I have a deep spiritual practice that helps me stay grounded to do the work that I do with clients. I practice mindfulness in my daily life and teach this to my clients, because I know how much it benefits me personally to stay in the present moment.
Many clients come to me who have previously been to therapists who were not trained to treat anxiety, or trauma or couples counseling specifically.
I realized when I worked at the VA Hospital in Boston over 18 years ago, that there was more to counseling than just talking to my clients. I realized that people who have anxiety or PTSD need to have very targeted treatment and skills to heal the anxieties.
I learned how to treat anxiety by getting extensive training in evidence-based modalities that really help clients feel MUCH calmer and help them let go of their past. My vast experience and training with EFT/Tapping continues to serve me and my clients very well, as they report healing from anxiety and trauma due to using the techniques I teach them.
To become skilled in couple’s counseling, I have taken extensive training with Dr. Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy programs. I stay engaged in ongoing training in this type of couple’s therapy because it is one of the best researched and respected programs with a very high rate of effectiveness for helping couples reconnect.
I also am experienced in treating other therapists who are in need of counseling. Being trained as a therapist does not make one immune to the troubles of life. If you are a therapist, know that you will be treated with kindness and respect (as are all my clients) and it is my honor to help you through any tough time you are facing.
