"Do you need a specialist who understands PTSD from the inside out? Have you been or are you now in therapy, but feel like you need a healer who really gets traumatic stress? Are you a person of extreme sensitivity, unusually empathic, spiritual or psychic? I would like to offer you a path out of the extreme suffering of PTSD and traumatic stress. I work with many people whose previous therapies have not worked out for them, including folks who have suffered from extreme traumas such as ritual abuse and/or mind control. Attachment, compassion and practicality characterize my work."

"Do you seek the root from your past that connects to present-day suffering? I use a DBT-informed, cognitive-behavioral approach in my counseling practice. I strive to help clients identify goals to reach a more satisfying quality of life. When you and I feel ready I utilize prolonged exposure techniques and mind-body connections to treat childhood and adult trauma. We would focus on desensitization of present-day triggers, processing of past traumatic memories, and insight into complex trauma effects played out in current relationships."

In addition, this approach attempts to separate the problem from the individual and often uses homework assignments, journaling, and mindfulness exercises as therapeutic interventions.
