My Approach

Effective, Evidence-Based and Solution-Focused Therapy For Individuals and Couples To Address:


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Substance Use Issues

Relationship Problems

Life Transitions

I was Intensively trained at Stanford University to utilize evidence-based psychotherapies to promote change. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Time Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). More recently I have studied under founder Laney Rosenzweig in a revolutionary treatment for PTSD called Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) (see below).

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

Brief, Highly Effective,  Evidence-based Treatment For Trauma/PTSD

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a cutting edge treatment for PTSD/Trauma that can produce significant symptom reduction in as little as one session. The science behind ART is related to the ways in which the brain processes experiences and stores memories (click here for more info). In an ART session, the therapist assists the client with identifying and replacing troubling memories/images while stimulating the brain bilaterally. Click here to read more about ART and determine if you would like to schedule an appointment.  

If you feel you are being held back by an experience from the past, ART may be right for you.
