Healing frees up energy to get more of what you desire out of life. In Individual counseling and the groups "Circle of Healing" and "Mending Hearts" (divorcing after decades). I empower clients by teaching them Tools for Healing that they can then use on their own. My approach takes into consideration the emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual aspects of well-being. I specialize in working with people who have experienced an Emotionally Abusive Relationship with parent or partner or peers (bullying). I am the author of A ToolKit for Healing from Verbally Abusive Relationships (can purchase by clicking on my website on the right). I use Mindbody Integrative Therapy, which identifies and integrates thoughts, feelings, body sensations and behaviors - a process that decreases "triggering" (upset) and dissociation, while increasing problem solving and self-mastery. New and old situations are resolved. Healing from abuse, and the P.T.S.D. that can result involves calming the mindbody. I work with the following issues: anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, divorce - including difficult/contentious divorces, relationship problems, stress management, phobias, couples counseling, loss and grief counseling, low self-esteem, and crime victims. Living with an abusive relationship involves chronic stress, which wears on health of the mind and body, a complex condition that requires a holistic approach. I provide a multi-cultural, LBGT friendly practice.

Counseling for healing from Emotionally Abusive Relationships with parents, partners, spouses or peers. No matter what it is called - emotional abuse, psychological abuse, mental abuse, Coercive Control or bullying - it's stressful and erodes self-esteem. Emotionally abusive adults may have a personality disorder: NPD, BPD, OCPD, ASPD, or PPD. I facilitate weekly groups for Healing from Emotionally Abusive Relationships. Divorcing someone who is emotionally or physically aggressive can be very difficult or even dangerous. Often economic abuse is involved. Even if your abusive spouse asked for the divorce, they can be vindictive and contradictory. On the one hand he or she will most likely blame you for the problems in the relationship and even insist that you are the abuser. On the other hand, they may pressure you into coming back. If someone has been unfair, abusive, controlling, and deceptive in a marriage, she or he will be unfair, abusive, controlling, and deceptive in a divorce. It is very important to plan your divorce strategy and assemble a support team to reduce the abuser's ability to blindside you. Getting emotional support can reduce stress and poor decision making.

Creating Shift Workshops and Individual Therapy: A picture is worth a 1000 words and can evoke internal shift. I have developed a tool for resolving abusive or stressful memories using a combination of cartooning and images. Patterns of interacting, core issues, and "emotional climate" patterns can be identified and their trajectory can be altered for a more satisfying now and future. The Shift is created via "staging" of events using imagery to align sensations, emotions, thoughts, and behavior. New goals emerge and are tracked via Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
