Services and areas of special interest


While I see clients with a variety of issues, including anxiety, life transitions, stress management, and relationship/family challenges, I have a few areas of special interest, experience, and advanced training. 

The Highly Sensitive Person (also called sensory processing sensitivity) has a heightened sensitivity to internal and external stimuli.  HSPs make up approximately 20% of the population. It can be challenging to experience life so deeply. Let’s talk about how to cope and even thrive as an HSP, and why I believe this trait is a superpower.  Read more about HSPs here:


Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (or BFRBs) include chronic hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, thumb sucking, and more. I combine Cognitive Behavioral techniques with stimulus control, distress tolerance training, and tools for habit reversal to develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan for these complex behaviors. Excellent resources can be found here:


Vicarious Trauma (or Compassion Fatigue). With Covid, healthcare professionals likle physicians, nurses, and First Responders have been challenged like never before. Even seasoned professionals are physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. I work from a trauma-informed approach to help you process your experience and create more healthy and adaptive meanings around trauma.
