Therapeutic Approach

IMG_7055Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), I specialize in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as well as other traumas, anxiety, depression, and a variety of other disorders. I am also a Counseling Services for Fire Fighters Certified Clinician.

I utilize evidence based treatments with an eclectic theoretical approach including but not limited to cognitive behavioral, reality therapy, play therapy, psychodynamic, and gestalt interventions. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including a sexual violence center, community health centers, private practice, community-based crisis counseling, and parenting settings.

When you don’t know what to do, what do you do? Your answer to this thoughtful question marks the beginning of a rewarding personal journey. We all need three things—to belong, to experience intimacy, and, every now and again, to feel special. This is not too much to ask from our lives. But learning how to get what we most need requires that we catch up with our past, become better at navigating our future, and become more present with and sensitive to what is happening right now. Getting these needs met requires the willingness to make new mistakes and learn a new way of dealing with old problems.
