About My Clients

I work closely with individuals who have experienced trauma and are living with PTSD. I also deeply enjoy supporting people living with addiction, depression and anxiety. By utilizing evidence-based practices such as EMDR , CBT and others, healing is possible. I am a strong diagnostician and have often helped people find clarity and a diagnosis after years of feeling lost or not making progress. Let's get you unstuck and feeling better!

My Background and Approach

To augment my education I have obtained additional certification and training in chemical dependency treatment (addictions) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I am trained in EMDR and am currently in the process of obtaining the secondary level of training, certification. I have worked in emergency rooms, hospital inpatient facilities, intensive outpatient programs and in jails. This means I have seen and worked closely with individuals struggling with a transitional experience of anxiety, all the way to those living with schizophrenia. In all of these settings I've encountered one constant: trauma. So I'm constantly building on my knowledge and skills to support people in effectively processing and growing from their traumatic experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all behavior makes sense; As adaptive humans, we're always making the best choices we can given our lens, experiences, education and resources. I believe that if I had lived the life that my client has experienced, I would be making similar choices, because we are all doing the best that we can. I support clients by expanding their knowledge, experiences and resources to make more useful and effective choices in their behaviors and thoughts while providing deep empathy and understanding. I don't believe shame, judgement or anger is effective in mobilizing people to change, thus is it is not part of my therapeutic approach.
