Therapy to Help Heal
Individuals, Couples, Families & Parents

“Amazing.  Fast. Effective and worth every penny.  That would be enough. But, peeling the onion led me back to the original events that caused the trauma in the first place.  Instead of getting stuck there, it seems my brain has a new subroutine, called ERASE.  I can pretty much invoke it at will now, almost like a meditation.”

If you are here on my website, it’s because you are hurting. Something is causing you to be stuck and is preventing you from thriving and enjoying your life! Professional help can break the log jam. It can free you from the repetitive, detrimental patterns in your life and enable you to find positive and helpful approaches to old problems.

I have over 25 years of helping and empowering families, couples and individuals. As a result of our work together:

  • heart shaped hands holding sandYou can feel empowered to see what is good and change the things that are not working for you.
  • Through Brainspotting, we will decrease or even eliminate the trauma and PTSD symptoms that limit your enjoyment of life.
  • You will learn to communicate your needs and feel heard by your partner.
  • You will feel safe enough in your relationships, that you will be able to open up with your loved one.
  • Parents will learn to transition from fear-based parenting to respect-based parenting.

I don’t see people as sick, I see them as stuck. Getting unstuck will open new possibilities in your life.

Family Therapy

One or more of the kids in these families were at risk of out-of-home placement due to neglect or abuse. I derived a deep satisfaction from the fact that after 18 months, 95% of those families were still together.  To this day, I continue to help people connect or reconnect with their resilience and heal through to wholeness.

In addition to working with “traditional” families, I also work with families who have different configurations.
