I work from a relational, psychodynamic, family-systems, and trauma-competent perspective. I am trained in and utilize EMDR, IFS, AEDP, and ERP with clients. I integrate concepts from the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics into my assessment to help find ways to better support clients where they are at rather than where they are expected to be. I have been trained extensively in how important it is to understand family histories. Even events that seem subtle on the surface can alter interactions and perceptions over the years, causing patterns in ourselves and our own families that we may not be aware of.
While I have experience with a variety of clinical concerns, my focus tends to be on PTSD and trauma, including Adult Children of Alcoholics, Emotional Neglect and other Family of Origin Issues or Relational Trauma. I also have experience treating OCD and phobias and utilize ERP and ACT for those struggling with these specific concerns.
