My treatment focus is helping people process experiences of trauma including a diagnosis of PTSD. Symptoms of anxiety and depression including symptoms of ruminating thoughts, trouble sleeping, low energy, low mood, irritability and poor concentration are often associated with the residual experience of trauma. Am interested in helping people get to the place where they can process their trauma. I do not treat ADHD and I do not prescribe stimulants.
