With over 25 years experience as a psychotherapist, I bring warmth and insight to the therapy relationship which is so critical for the Schema Therapy model. I am a Certified Advanced Schema Therapist and Certified Trainer/Supervisor. My work is primarily with adults, couples and older adolescents. Schema Therapy engages clients in new ways to not only reflect on and learn from their past, but they will essentially change their internal experiences of the past. Using Schema Therapy techniques, I guide clients to re-engage in past experiences and lead them through the process of exploring, understanding and improving patterns of maladaptive thoughts feelings and behaviors. As schema therapists, we work closely with our clients to essentially re-script key experiences (core memories) early in your life that may have caused long-standing maladaptive patterns of behavior. After working with together, clients report that rather than feeling overwhelmed and swept up experiencing life in the same old ways, they develop new feelings and perspectives about themselves and begin to make new and more fulfilling choices.

Schema Therapy is an innovative approach to uncover past experiences that may have contributed to unwanted thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I have worked with hundreds of individuals and couples to help them improve their lives and relationships. Contact me to find out more: Click Here.
