Usually one time per week for the the initial stage of therapy for best results, then less frequently over time. I will offer my professional opinion about this after an assessment, and in collaboration with you. I provide care in the most useful and effective way possible, and respect your financial, emotional and time commitment.
EMDR Therapy may be provided as an Intensive service, on a case by case basis. You could potentially bypass months of weekly sessions, and instead receive EMDR Therapy over 1-2 full days. Together, we can assess if this is a healthy and safe option for you.
I have the good fortune of seeing many people find joy in their lives and relationships, after resolving whatever road blocks may be getting in the way. Therapy helps! It takes courage to come in; I will show you the respect you deserve and listen to your story and situation.
I'm dedicated to making a difference for the people I get to work with every day.
All of us carry the strength and abilities we need to get through even the most difficult times. I've seen it! However, we need each other. Going it alone is not the design for wellness.
My training, experience and heart is all about creating more understanding, healing, joy and contentment for each one of you. I'm also committed to my own self care, including practicing mindfulness, a healthy spiritual life, and taking good care of my physical health. The better I do for me...the better I can do for you! This is how we build a more loving, reasonable and sustainable life. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!
