    Client-centered individual therapy

    Client-centered individual therapy

    You are unique, with a whole lifetime's worth of skills and strengths.  The kinds of issues you're dealing with may not be as formidable as you may think.  

    There are many evidence-based therapies that can help you resolve specific kinds of issues in specific ways.  I am familiar with and use them in varying combinations, including EMDR, cognitive behavioral strategies, insight-oriented therapy, motivational interviewing, clinical hypnosis, problem-solving strategies, and many more.

    You are in the driver's seat.  I will help you navigate the road blocks facing you.  You and I will tailor the right combination of treatment tools to benefit you the most.

    Intensive trauma recovery therapy

    Intensive trauma recovery therapy

    Trauma is tricky, isn't it?  It can replace your energy in the present with depression, angst, immobility, a sense of defeat, and fear which come from a terrifying past.  I want you to win yourself back, to live and thrive happily and effectively in the present, and build toward a fulfilling future.

    Based on my availability, you and I will super-focus on healing and stabilizing your strength.  We'll spend more time meeting your survival and coping needs.  This may mean meeting two to five times per week.  It may mean working for longer periods of time in a session, say from two to four hours.  It may mean meeting for periodic individual intensives.  The goal here is to bring about accelerated change in a SAFE and CONTAINED way that won't disrupt your current ability to live and cope.

    Clinical Hypnosis

    Clinical Hypnosis

    I practice clinical hypnosis, which can be mobilized to treat various problems. Issues that respond well to hypnosis include anxiety, depression (low self-esteem, negative self-talk, suicidal ideation) as well as habit disorders (smoking cessation, weight loss, fingernail biting), mind-body health problems (digestive disorders, hypertension, intractable pain), and trauma disorders.

    I want to be clear that this is not "stage hypnosis."  I have been trained by the two largest professional hypnosis societies in the U.S.  These societies are open only to licensed MDs, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other licensed professionals.  I am a long-standing member, have served on the board, and teach advanced workshops.

    Therapy for Depression

    Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?
    Do these thoughts often enter your mind?

    I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.

    I hate who I am these days.
    I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
    I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
    My life and the world around me are dark. I…

    Therapy for PTSD

    Many people have some kind of traumatic experience in their lifetime, whether it’s a car accident, a violent parent or neighborhood, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.

    Recovery from such terrible experiences requires the love and support of family and friends, which help a person bounce back with resiliency.  Recovery has everything to do with the recognition that a terrible event has occurred.  Recovery has everything to do with… 

    Therapy for Dissociative Disorders

    You are feeling miserable, confused, and discouraged about how your life is going.  You’re scattered.  You feel crazy.  You do stuff that gets you in trouble.  You find yourself lying even when you don’t need to. You’re hiding in plain sight from “normal people.”  Normal?

    Clinical hypnosis

    Ever been so enthralled by a project that you lost track of time?  Ever read a book or saw a movie that completely captured your attention? Ever been driving on the highway and so focused on your destination and your thoughts that you missed your exit?  Ever played a computer game so intently that you weren’t even aware you had to to the bathroom?  

    You’ve experienced a form of hypnosis, an altered state that is focused, relaxed, and open to the experience.
