Announcement icon Since the COVID-19 pandemic remains fluid, I am continuing to offer Teletherapy services for continuity of care.
As a USN disabled Veteran, I have learned firsthand that life is filled with many difficult challenges and much is outside of our control but, with the desire to change and hard work, you can overcome traumatic events and live life to its fullest. My focus is on helping individuals, couples, children, and families cope and overcome hardships related to disabilities, interpersonal abuse and sexual trauma, loss and grief, separation and divorce, combat and military trauma, mental illness, and all of our daily life stressors. Life can be tough, but together, we can find positive ways to cope and thrive no matter the challenge.
Using Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), an empirically supported treatment, I can assist children and adults to overcome the effects of personal trauma related to abuse, violence, accidents, loss, divorce, disabilities, and exposure to traumatic life events. A treatment plan will guide our work and we will measure the progress over time.
At the current time, I am only accepting new clients from the military and Veteran communities. My current schedule is compressed and I can only offer limited availability for appointments.
