The Veal Group

Counseling • Coaching • Consulting

I aim to provide a compassionate and safe environment as we work towards your therapeutic goals. For counseling to be effective, I believe it is important for you to take an active role in the process. I believe our life experiences shape our thoughts and feelings, which in return, motivates our behaviors. I value the advances in neurobiological technologies, which have expanded our understanding of the unconscious mind and the "forces" that gravitate us towards familiar behaviors, even if they have been identified as unhealthy. Through evidenced-based interventions, we will work towards resolving faulty behaviors and belief systems. I am trained in EMDR, an evidenced-based psychotherapy approach used to address trauma, unpleasant memories, and other stressful life experiences. Additionally, I use dialectic behavior therapy to teach clients tangible skills rooted in mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance. All of my services are available in office or via Tele-mental Health.
