"I work with adults, adolescents and children (age three and up) in individual, couples, and family therapy. I also work with clients experiencing anxiety, panic disorders, depression and trauma; including those with histories of physical and/or sexual abuse. I have a specialty in EDMR, which is a treatment for trauma and other situations in which people feel "stuck" in their ability to work through difficult issues in their lives. I also work with couples and relationship issues, stress management and child issues including ADHD, school and family difficulties and parenting issues. Populations served also include people dealing with substance abuse."
