Individual Therapy

In an individual counseling session, you will participate in an ongoing personalized therapy that suits your needs.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy helps to heal the mind and the triggering body sensations that are interrupting your life!  EMDR therapy enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Family Therapy

Family therapy improves communication, teaches new strategies for problem solving and conflict resolution, as well as enhances the connections  you have with one another.

Online Counseling

Online Counseling is a great alternative to coming into the office. This is not only a good option when you just can’t be in my office physically due to environmental restrictions such as COVID-19, and social distancing, but there are those who can’t come into the office at all for many other reasons such as physical illness, work schedules, or distance from our office. 

We use a secure site in which to conduct counseling sessions. You will have a private link sent to you to be able to access your weekly sessions without any risk of losing privacy or security.

Group Counseling

Groups play an important part in therapy, for all ages, and for different reasons. Group, versus individual therapy, provides feedback and support from other individuals that are your peers.

It is sometimes easier to connect, open up, and relate when there are multiple people shaking their heads or acknowledging they’ve experienced a similar situation.

Currently we are meeting with groups online due to the COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions.

Call our office at 805-405-4746 for information about the groups that are currently in session.

I additionally work with EMDR Therapists who are Certified and are working towards being an Approved Consultant.

It’s Time to Play

It's Time to Play!  As a parent, one of the greatest joys is to watch my child play, especially when I can tell he is using his imagination and creating in his world. As of lately, he is OBSESSED with DINOSAURs! I mean, while he may struggle to say many smaller words,...
