Using a modern holistic approach to mental health, I help my clients with healing & personal growth.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Encinitas, CA
I have over a decade of experience and extensive training in the field of trauma, including a 3-year position with the US Navy working with military survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, college student survivors of sexual assault, survivors of mass shootings, and 6 years of private practice with an emphasis on clients with complex PTSD. I understand that trauma is not limited to single events, is complicated, and I continue to advance my knowledge and skills every year.
My graduate program used an attachment based therapeutic framework, and it is the lens through which I view the therapeutic process. Regardless of the presenting concerns or treatment plan, I believe that the therapeutic relationship can and should serve as a reparative relational experience.
I am a trained and experienced EMDR therapist, and I have completed advanced training such as the Flash Technique and Attachment Focused EMDR.
I have extensive experience in the treatment of issues facing women using a variety of modalities.
