While discussing mental health has become somewhat more common, it might not be a topic that you feel comfortable bringing up with close friends or family. If you have felt that you were alone as you experience symptoms like a lack of concentration, uncontrollable negative thoughts, or feeling like you are in 'autopilot' I would be honored to guide your recovery process. I believe that anxiety and depression are shared experiences that we all encounter during periods of heightened stressors in our lives, and that the goal of therapy is to help us identify what our thoughts and choices that do not align with our goals.
Oftentimes, I use a foundation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Aside from implementing scientifically validated treatments, I am a strong proponent of the whole person perspective. It is important to me that I know much more about each client than the issue that brings them them to therapy in order to understand who you are aside from a diagnosis.
I have experience in complex trauma/ PTSD, treatment resistant depression, grief / bereavement, anxiety, and resiliency and race based stress/trauma. I have worked with the full spectrum of ages and enjoy working with young children to the geriatric population, and I enjoy using my experience in the Army to work with military families.
