"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." I am a compassionate and experienced Clinical Psychologist attending to the emotional and psychological needs of individuals, children, families and couples in a safe and confidential environment. I treat trauma, dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger and relationship issues. I have significant clinical experience treating trauma based disorders as well as dissociative disorders.
I also use EMDR. EMDR IS helpful to those with trauma histories, anxiety/phobias, depression, and more. I am also trained in Dyadic therapy for children with Reactive Attachment Disorder. I offer sand tray therapy for children who have difficulty expressing themselves. I also offer SSP. It is designed to calm down the 10th cranial nerve, the vagus nerve.
I have published three journal articles on trauma and dissociation. I also offer phone consultation for professionals and phone/online therapy for those who cannot attend in person. "Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it." -Tori Amos.
