About Paula

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years experience working with individuals and couples. I obtained my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and a Graduate Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Mary’s University.

My specialties are treating trauma, PTSD, dissociation, depression, anxiety disorders, attachment issues, Aspergers, and bipolar. I utilize only the most proven and evidence based mind, body, spirit approaches, including psychodynamic therapy, EMDR, somatic experience, CBT, ego state, mindfulness, self compassion and acceptance therapies.

My strong belief in my clients’ abilities to heal and grow by using their own innate power and wisdom motivates and empowers them, giving them hope, belief and trust in themselves. In my gentle, compassionate, non-judgmental approach I help my clients feel unconditional acceptance, support, understanding and safety.
