Certified EMDR & Sex Therapist, specializing in addiction and trauma. Helping people find balance and thrive in their journey.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Spokane, WA
I am skilled in guiding clients through the process of understanding their anxious thoughts, emotions, behaviors, panic, and anxiety. Through CBT, we work collaboratively to identify and challenge negative thinking patterns, develop coping strategies that work, and reframe distorted beliefs. I integrate evidence-based techniques such as relaxation exercises, mindfulness practices to help clients gradually confront and overcome their fears.
I specialize in addiction treatment utilizing two powerful modalities: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). EMDR helps clients process traumatic experiences underlying addictive behaviors, reducing their emotional impact. With CBT, we address the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors contributing to addiction, fostering healthier coping mechanisms and relapse prevention strategies. Restoring self-worth, and creating a fulfilling and sober life.
As a certified EMDR therapist, I specialize in trauma therapy, dedicated to increasing the quality of life for clients. Through targeted EMDR and CBT interventions, we process and heal from past traumas, allowing for emotional resolution, resilience, and personal growth. By addressing the impact of trauma, individuals are empowered to reclaim their lives, cultivate healthier coping strategies, and foster a greater sense of wellbeing, ultimately enhancing their overall life satisfaction.
With advanced certifications and licensures in addiction therapy, I bring a high level of expertise to my practice. Equipped with specialized training and a deep understanding of addiction, I offer evidence-based interventions, personalized treatment plans, and a compassionate approach. I help individuals navigate the complexities of addiction, addressing underlying issues, developing healthy coping skills, and fostering lasting recovery.
I have been certified in EMDR therapy for 10+ years. With specialized training, I help clients process traumatic experiences, reduce distressing symptoms, and promote healing. I have additional training in specific EMDR's protocols going beyond trauma. I facilitate adaptive resolution, enabling clients to regain emotional balance, enhance self-awareness, and experience profound personal growth.
With advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), I possess specialized skills to assist individuals in psychotherapy. DBT offers effective strategies for managing emotions, enhancing interpersonal skills, and promoting self-acceptance. I guide clients in developing adaptive coping mechanisms, reducing self-destructive behaviors, and building a life worth living.
