I am a Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. I have completed advanced training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), all empirically validated treatment approaches for adult individuals and couples.
I have received training in mindfulness practices, interpersonal neurobiology, hypnosis and intuitive guidance, all of which I draw upon to inform my clinical practice. I am skilled at attuning to clients and adapting my approach to provide the best fit possible.
The number of sessions needed for successful resolution varies from client to client. I believe my job is to work myself out of a job as quickly and effectively as possible. We start with a 15-minute intake call in which you tell me about your interest in therapy. If it feels like a good fit over the phone, we schedule our first session.
In the first few sessions, I will learn more about you and together we will begin to refine your goals for therapy. Based on your goals, I will design a treatment strategy tailored to your specific needs. Typically, clients (individuals or couples) start with weekly or bi-weekly sessions.
Consistency is important in the beginning so we can gain momentum in the work. As we progress, time between sessions can increase. Some clients find resolution in a period of weeks or months. Others take longer. Some “finish” and come back from time to time for a tune up. If I believe I am no longer serving you effectively, I will provide you with referral suggestions.
