For many, the transitional period between childhood and adulthood can be a turbulent time.  Growing pains are common among teens who are struggling to develop their own identity and understand who they are and what they need. Learning how to look at their actions and beliefs helps them to make decisions about school, family, peers, and relationships. Having a place to freely discuss their thoughts and understand their feelings can help promote introspection and self-esteem and lead them on a road to greater self-confidence and maturity.

I am a certified therapist in EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, a form of treatment that helps people process traumatic events. This treatment is empirically validated and supported by research as an effective treatment for trauma. It is also widely used and helpful in treating phobias and anxiety disorders. I have received specialized training in using this innovative approach for children and adolescents. For more information, click here.

In addition, I am trained in hypnosis, which can be used to treat a variety of emotional and behavioral symptoms, including panic, phobias, habit control, pain management and performance enhancement.  For more information, click here.
