Behavioral Health Therapy

The goal of behavior health therapy is to heal. I typically utilize a cognitive behavioral approach which recognizes what we think impacts how we feel and how we behave. Addressing the cognitive component often times means addressing and healing from past hurts/wounds/traumas and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) can be utilized to achieve this goal. I also incorporate nutrition coaching, within therapy sessions, when clients are amenable.



I provide individual as well as couple/marital/family therapy.

· Anxiety

Physical Activity

To attain true PEP for Life, it is vital to be physically active. I purposefully use the phrase “physical activity,” versus exercise, because many people have a negative connotation associated with exercise.

Some people view exercise as a burden; something unpleasant that they are doing to their body. I simply want you to move.

Do something that is fun. Dance in your living room or outside in the rain. Rollerblade. Go to the park and complete a circuit workout utilizing the park benches and/or playground equipment. Be creative, have fun, and move.
