I've been working in the mental health and substance abuse fields for over 35 years. I've seen many trends in therapy come and go, but I've found the only things that really help clients are techniques they can use on their own outside of my office. It's my mission to help others help themselves. My clients have found great benefit and healing in the very effective techniques that I use, which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Developmental Needs Meeting Strategies (DNMS), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnosis, and my very own Thought Changing Exercise.
