Working with you is a privilege.
My general private practice includes proven strategies and innovative specialties. They include: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), including “life skills” training; treatment of trauma-based disorders including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse; women’s issues; marital, divorce, and other relationship issues, including the Imago relationship perspective; family systems therapy; and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
Engaging in the work of psychotherapy with my clients is a very special privilege and sacred trust. My clients know me as caring and compassionate, and someone who can understand and feel their pain. I will never ever make you feel judged for the choices you have made, for who you are, or for where you have been.
