Approach

How I work with a specific individual is dictated by each client's needs and situation. I often use EMDR for abuse and trauma issues‚ cognitive approaches for depression and anxiety‚ behaviorial techniques for procrastination and burn out. For people who want to examine core beliefs and structures‚ I offer the approach developed by Byron Katie.

If you are interested in maximizing your efforts‚ I'll encourage you to do practical exercises and “Homework” outside of my office.

My goal is “more zing and less ouch” in your life. I’d like you to get there as soon as you can.

Each year I invest a significant amount of time and money for advanced training. Refining current techniques and learning new approaches means I have the best techniques available for my clients.
