My grandfather used to say to me, “You never meet a stranger – that’ll take you far in this world.” And it has! Over the years, I’ve landed in cities as near as New Orleans, Louisiana, and as distant as Frankfurt, Germany. In addition to meeting new people and observing life from their point of view, I enjoy singing, reading, visiting museums, exercising, table and court tennis, gardening, trying out new recipes, and working puzzles. I also value and enjoy making memories with family and friends as often as possible.
It’s been proven that clients gain more from the therapeutic relationship than the techniques therapists apply; that is, a healthy and appropriate therapeutic relationship between therapist and client yields high motivation for client change. Nevertheless, therapeutic techniques are required and useful.
I am experienced in using several techniques (Solution Focused Brief Therapist – SFBT, Reality Therapy – RT, Narrative Therapy – NT, and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing – EMDR), however, a philosophy that guides any chosen approach, is my abiding belief that behaviors reflect our thoughts and beliefs; and that is the basic principle of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which examines the client’s belief system and thinking patterns that led to negative behaviors, then fosters new ways of thinking and believing that lead to long-term positive behaviors. In addition, I believe that body, soul, and spirit are interconnected, that one affects the other. Therefore, each area may be explored to discover their affects on the client’s concern or issue.
When working with clients processing through Trauma, I use Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), which enables the client to unlock and reprocess memories of disturbing life events that are negatively impacting present thoughts, emotions, and behaviors; and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), which uses gradual exposure to assist the client in accepting the fact of the trauma and enables the client to move forward in a wholesome way.
Whether it’s low self-esteem, trauma, separation, divorce, family/domestic violence, anger, depression, grief/loss, parenting, or other concerns, we will work together to tailor your therapy to your needs. I work with a variety of populations, including, but not limited to, teens, adults, couples, and parents. I look forward to meeting and assisting you in your growth journey.
