During the course of a lifetime, we are likely to encounter obstacles we are not prepared for, or travel down roads that do not lead us where we hoped. Whether emotional pain comes from past events, trauma, current life stressors, loss, depression, phobias, anxiety, anger, or unwelcome changes or challenges, I believe that everyone possesses the ability to improve their quality of life. Working collaboratively with my clients using their values and goals as a guide, the maps needed to work through these obstacles are created and steps towards a more positive future are taken.

Building from a strong therapeutic alliance, interventions focus on coping skill acquisition, recovering from past trauma, symptom reduction, improving interpersonal effectiveness, and creating meaning. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy are the primary modalities used to help clients meet their goals.

I specialize in working with individuals whose lives have been impacted by past trauma and are dealing with post traumatic stress. I have extensive training and experience using evidence based therapies such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy to treat PTSD
