Individual counseling is a collaborative effort between a client and counselor created to foster positive growth and change within a safe, therapeutic environment. The counseling experience is different for each person but generally includes a combination of discussions and experiential learning, as well as homework between counseling sessions.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, (EMDR), integrates elements of many effective psychotherapies in structured protocols that are designed to maximize treatment effects. These include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, experiential, and body-centered therapies. EMDR is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach.

I work from a collaborative, whole-person, holistic, mind-body-energy approach to wellness by joining with clients and looking at all of the components necessary for optimal health. I utilize the therapeutic relationship to help foster client growth, while employing Congnitive-behavioral/Solution-focused Strategies, Psychodynamic theory, Systems theory, Psycho-education, and Transpersonal/spirituality based interventions. I integrate yoga, meditation and energy work into each session.
