As a trauma therapist who provides all four trauma focused therapies (EMDR, CPT, PE, WET) your treatment is tailor fit to your specific needs.
Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

We are living in very uncertain times. It is important to recognize now more than ever that we possess the innate ability for inner peace and calm even in the face of fearing the unknown. Psychotherapy is an exploration of what is blocking people from fully realizing their fullest potential, genuine happiness and fulfillment. Anxiety, depression and other "mental health issues" are often rooted in a deeper desire to be understood, to be seen, and to accomplish one's life purpose. A strong psychotherapeutic alliance can help to unlock our innate gifts and natural abilities that are hidden beneath our fears and limiting beliefs.

My focus as a clinician can be described as a mindfulness approach. Together with my clients and their families I work toward bringing awareness to the presenting behaviors, environments, impairments, and strengths. Having this initial awareness can allow a person to understand the underlying motives of their behavior as well as reasons for discomfort or pain and, if desired, make the necessary changes.

Currently not accepting new clients. Therapy is a dynamic and empowering process that can help people truly understand and connect with themselves and the people in their lives. Everyone struggles with feeling unhappy, stressed, frustrated, etc. and sometimes we feel stuck and trapped by these feelings. I enjoy working with my clients to help them identify their own hidden strengths to overcome the obstacles to a happier and more fulfilling life.

Welcome! I have experience working with adults in both outpatient and residential substance abuse settings. My work in substance abuse has granted me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and grief. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort and I encourage clients to communicate openly about what works best for them. I value each therapeutic relationship and honor each client’s autonomy and individuality. I believe that individuals have the ability to overcome their struggles and that therapy can make that possible.

What type of Elmwood mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
