As of November 1, 2017, I will be established in my new office in Central Palm Springs, where I offer psychotherapy and consultation services to adults (18 and older) and couples.
I would describe my approach to psychotherapy as “eclectic” and very person-centered. Through my years of practice, I have developed a number of different approaches to working with clients. I approach each client as a distinct individual and work openly and transparently with each client to determine the approach that will be most effective. I can work within a short-term treatment model and focus on concrete objectives, goal setting, symptom reduction, and skill building. I can also work within a long-term therapy framework, examining deeper and more subtle emotional issues for the client and also utilizing the therapeutic relationship as a “mini-laboratory” within which we can occasionally examine core themes that surface in the client’s life.
I have found EMDR to be an incredibly efficient and effective approach to resolving the impact of past traumatic events. EMDR offers a comprehensive, organized, and systematic approach to resolving trauma, and I have had the privilege of witnessing so many of my clients resolve multiple issues in their lives. I find EMDR to be an extremely person-centered and creative approach to treatment, healing, and the recovery process. If you would like more information about EMDR, I recommend exploring www.emdr.com, or simply click on this link to bring you to the “Frequently Asked Questions” page.
In addition to my Certification status in EMDR, I am also a 200-hour Certified Yoga Instructor. While I don’t conduct yoga in my therapy sessions, I occasionally draw from this experience in guiding my clients toward useful insights and new skills for managing their lives.
