I lead therapy groups for trauma survivors to find validation, improve self-care and coping, and strengthen connection with others. I am certified in EMDR and trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I utilize EMDR with adults for single events, complex trauma, recent or ongoing trauma, and to reduce urges for substance use or problematic behaviors. I am an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Consultant and can provide consultation for therapists pursuing certification in EMDR.

I am EMDR trained since 2018 and has used EMDR with teens and adults in individual settings.

I am trained in DBT with over 40 hours of training & a year of ongoing consultation for my use of DBT. In private practice I do not practice in adherence to the full model & assess at intake and refer clients out needing that. I provide weekly individual session for DBT skills training and an additional individual session for DBT individual therapy. Also I use DBT for folks that would benefit from the interpersonal skills, distress tolerance, emotion regulation or mindfulness modules.
I have completed training in motivational interviewing and have experience using this in non-profit case management settings, therapeutic settings, and in private practice. This treatment can be helpful in meeting a person where they are, and further understanding how to move through the stages of change.
