I'm also trained in the gold standard treatments for nightmare disorder and other forms of sleep disruption.
Anxiety, depressed mood, post-traumatic stress, & ongoing sleep disruption negatively impacts your mental health, physical health, & damages relationships with the people you love. I'm trained in gold standard treatments for chronic stress that focus on increasing your skills for relaxation, being more present & in the moment, deepening your relationships, discovering your values, & committing to living a more open, flexible, exciting, authentic life.
I am trained in the clinical assessment & gold standard treatments for PTSD: Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) & Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE). These treatments are highly effective & take an average of only 12 weekly sessions for you to effectively recover from trauma-related stress. My approach to treating trauma is unique as I combine my expertise as a sleep specialist to help you overcome the insomnia and nightmares that are so common in PTSD & BPD all at the same time.
I specialize in treating individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) using the gold standard treatment for BPD: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
