In the role of a coach or mentor, someone to walk with you on your journey of emotional healing, I utilize various techniques to help you make changes in your life and relationships.

Most commonly, the types of therapy I practice include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Systems theory and therapy
  • Solution focused therapy
  • Brief therapy
  • Family systems therapy
  • Experiential therapy
  • Talk therapy
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (click here to learn more about EMDR)
