As the wife of a Former Marine, I have a unique understanding of military life. I have worked in the psychiatric hospital that was the overflow to Ft. Bliss during 2009-10. Every man over 50 in my family was in the military except one. I have a greater understanding, than most, of what is required, given and gained in the military and the life that occurs afterward. Veterans and their families have a special place in my heart.
I began my career working in psychiatric hospitals (in and outpatient) where patients were at the end of their rope. They felt they had no hope. As a clinician, I became very skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and finding ways to help the patient, with the help of the entire treatment team, get better and find their way again. From the "baby-blues" or seasonal patterns to severe depression, I have worked with it all and am here to help you too.
Anxiety is becoming one of the most common mental health concerns today. Anxiety looks different for each person, but with proper understanding of why you are anxious, it becomes easier to stop or transform the anxiety into productivity. I use CBT to help look at the thoughts and beliefs that are feeding the anxiety and then we can use tools to make changes.
