Turning Point Psychotherapy

Have you been struggling with something you just can’t seem to get past? With the depth and brevity of Turning Point Psychotherapy, you can take a turn for the better, and stay better.  My passion is to help you reach that turning point.

When a game-changing moment presents itself, one thing is for sure: those who take advantage of it dive right in and participate. They are the ones who most likely benefit.

Turning Point Psychotherapy specializes in therapy that is depth-oriented and relatively brief for specific outcomes.

Whether you want to overcome anxiety or depression, transform a difficult relationship or cope with a difficult life transition, you can get the help you need.

Pure Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Coherence Therapy are just few examples of the transformative modalities Turning Point Psychotherapy is built on.

These forms of therapy are a synergistic blend of counteractive and transformative approaches.

By counteractive I mean the way therapy can help you build coping mechanisms and make changes in thinking  to counteract, bypass or get around the problem.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an example of a very effective and evidence based  counteractive approach. At the neurological level of impact, CBT will help to reroute the neural pathways involved in the thoughts/feelings/behaviors  relating to the problem you would like to resolve.

EMDR and Coherence Therapy are examples of transformative modalities. They help to access unconscious emotional positions  encoded at the synaptic level of the brain so that the “emotional charge” that cements unwanted patterns solidly in place can be “unlocked” and literally dissolved through a process known as memory reconsolidation.

Since 2002,  I’ve built Turning Point Psychotherapy on integrating these primary modalities as a way to bridge the conscious and unconscious mind.   As you’ll see from the testimonials, the results speak for the themselves.
