About

We'll identify triggers; correlate emotional, behavioral cognitive responses and reactions to manage or resolve PTSD, anxiety, depression and more. I collaborate with clients to identify the psychological impact of their past and current experiences and relationships on mood, I develop a treatment plan with each client to track the progression of the intensity, duration and frequency of symptoms. I'm trained to work with individuals who have been impacted by crime and those living with sadness, avoidance, isolation/withdrawal, worry, low self esteem and frequent mood changes and trauma experiences, difficult relationships and more.
My clients learn to assert their needs and to manage conflict in relationships; learn how to interpret and regulate emotions and respond appropriately; learn ways to accept and manage distress; improve interpersonal skills; decrease impulsivity related to eating, exercise or shopping; and deepen insight into how the past affects the present.
I use active listening, engaging responses, compassionate questioning, validation strategies and cognitive behavioral interventions to support clients in remaining committed to therapy as they challenge themselves to change well-established behavioral, cognitive and emotional patterns which they find frustrating but have relied on over time.
