Turning Towards Solutions For Individuals, Families & Couples

Evidence-Based, Client-Centered
Counseling Services

I help clients expedite their goals for wellness for themselves, their relationship with others, and their dream of building a family. As a licensed clinician with over 30 years’ experience in social services, and an adoptive mom, I am aware of the challenge of finding quality social services for both mental health needs and adoption. While the typical social service model focuses on problems, I help clients turn toward solutions with evidence-based, client-centered approaches.

My counseling practice implements two innovative models of therapy -- Accelerated Resolution Therapy which quickly replaces negative memories and body sensations with positive ones that the client chooses, and the results are often long lasting, and the Gottman Method for couples therapy that helps struggling relationships develop new ways to rebuild, communicate, and solve conflicts long term and this model is based on over 40 years of research.

Gottman Couples Therapy

Many couples find success with this innovative approach which goes beyond traditional talk therapy, and is rooted in over 40 years of research conducted by Dr. John Gottman/The Gottman Institute. Gottman therapy is used, in addition to Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), to support a couple’s relationship goals.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

ART Therapy is an evidence-based therapy to help individuals overcome trauma, depression, anxiety, learning disabilities, cravings, and more. Clients often report that this process is easier and faster (and even fun) in comparison to traditional “talk therapy.” With ART, clients let their brain show them the problem along with positive replacement images. The brain does the work.
