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.
I am a trauma therapist with training in EMDR and mindfulness. I am able to prescribe medications and my treatment philosophy is to use the lowest dose possible. I do require that I prescribe the psychiatric medications if you are taking psychiatric medications.
Asking for help and being vulnerable is not easy. We may have had unpleasant experiences with a psychiatric provider, and a hundred reasons to not ask for help. We are also wired for interpersonal connection, we want to be listened to, we want to be understood and to feel validation. I am here and ready to meet you when you are ready.
