The key to success in psychotherapy is the right approach for the right problem. I have dedicated myself to providing powerful treatment protocols based on your needs.  I have an eclectic approach to treatment that includes the following effective methods, both new and those that have been used by the greats in the field:

*  AEDP:  Through attunement between the therapist and client, feelings are experienced, expressed, soothed and contained releasing a natural strength and growth in identity, resilience in functioning, and increasing intimacy in relationships.

* Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy:  Through clarifying maladaptive thought, belief, feeling and behavior patterns, the therapist and client work together to develop an objective thinking, process, more realistic belief systems, healthier communication patterns, less procrastination tendencies and more internal congruence.

*Coaching:  Through questions, specific techniques and tools, the therapist and client explore developing an action plan to achieve personal goals and overcome barriers in achieving goals and lasting happiness.

*Emotional Freedom Techniques including Tapping:  EFT or Tapping is sometimes described as acupressure for the emotions.  It combines the benefits of both Chinese meridian therapy approaches with traditional therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy.  It uses the relaxation response of tapping to disrupt negative emotional reactions or memories.  It facilitates a sometimes immediate relief from emotional and physical tension and discomfort.

*Family Systems:  Through exploration of the family unit, the therapist and clients explore patterns in the family structure that are disruptive and develop new more functional ways of relating and developing independence within the family structure.

*Hypnotherapy and Visualization:  Through a relaxed aware state induced by the therapist through hypnosis and relaxation techniques, a variety of emotional, behavioral and relational issues can be explored, understood and resolved.

*Intuitive Counseling :   Through a sense of knowing, insight, and understanding the therapist and client approach personal blocks and insights.  Employing feelings, instinct, and more subtle information a shortcut to a deeper understanding of difficult scenarios in your life is available through this process. All of the senses conspire to provide information that can create a light bulb moment in one’s life, illuminating confusing or unconscious areas that can otherwise create disturbance and confusion.

*Mindfulness:  Through the development of relaxed awareness, therapist and client can overcome the internal blocks to living in a more centered, calm approach to life, love and work that assists the client in recognizing reactive patterns and process them in a healthy, present way.

*Person-Centered Therapy:  In a non-judgemental, safe environment, the therapist and client explore the wisdoms and potentials of the client that are available when maladaptive behaviors, thoughts, and feelings are recognized, accepted and processed.Take the next step towards wholeness and happiness.
