I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Mindfulness, CBT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy treatment to help those suffering with PTSD e.
I work well with clients seeking help for problems with anxiety and depression. Those referred to me with these issues find that symptomatically they are struggling with panic, sleep disturbances, worry thoughts, self-defeating thoughts/behaviors, eating disorders,addictions and unknowingly, at times, some of their difficulties have been attached to old trauma . Many people with these sorts of struggles find that this spills over into problems with relationships and/or functioning at work and school. Areas of intimacy, both emotional and sexual are important work also. I work with individuals, married couples,families, and groups.

I also offer trauma & parts work to integrate any unresolved past that may uncousciously affect your present.
You feel overwhelmed, exhausted, & burned out. You work so hard & acheive a lot, but still feel like you're not enough. You know trapped stress & emotion in your body affects your health, but don't know how to relax or come down from it. You want to set better boundaries to take care of you (not others), but struggle to do so. You can't go on like this & need something to change fast. I'll teach you proven somatic (mind body) skills for deep healing & transformation. Rather than disconnection from your sense of self, purpose, needs, body, or Spirit, imagine feeling more energy, whole, rested, & truly present to yourself.

I have a passion for providing clinical services related to women’s issues and have experience in working with individuals who suffer from PTSD as a result of childhood or adult trauma .
"Why should I go to counseling?" Most of us are no strangers to the difficulties that can be present in daily life. From pressures at work to meet a deadline, work overtime, or getting along with your boss to the conflicts at home: Maybe with with a significant other, children, parents, siblings, neighbors, etc. Many of us may also believe that these are things that we should be able to deal with on our own. "I shouldn't need help with these things," or "how can a stranger tell me about my life?" Well, counseling offers a unique relationship that is difficult to find with friends or family. When we talk to loved ones about our problems, many times we get advice on what we should do instead of what we are already doing. We may even get 5 minutes of our side before they tell us about their own experiences and problems. When you go to counseling you have the opportunity to get all of your pressures and stresses off your chest with someone who can listen and give their undivided attention to you. If a safe space in therapy is achieved, you will actually get the opportunity to self-reflect and evaluate the issues that you are struggling with.

Life can be difficult to navigate. Often we are indoctrinated by others beliefs and don't truly know who we are let alone how to live our lives. When energy gets stuck in the body and mind, whether it's from trauma , painful experiences or everyday stimuli in our lives, it causes patterns of unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.

I'm trained in TF-CBT (under 18) and EMDR, two different approaches that help alleviate the symptoms that trauma leaves behind.
You deserve to work with a therapist that is able to meet your needs, makes you feel comfortable and, let's be honest, is someone that you mesh with! The relationship between therapist and client is the core of the therapeutic process, when you connect with and trust in your therapist you are able to safely explore the things that brought you to therapy in the first place. I believe that you hold the answers to your questions and stressors and that it is my job to provide you with the tools to help uncover them.

I specialize in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
In today's environment, there are so many pressures on individuals, kids, and their parents that sometimes it seems overwhelming. Together we can find solutions to make coping with life's stressors easier and more effective. Therapy can help by having someone to talk with, process the stress, and generate solutions unique to the needs of individuals, children, and families. I believe we can work collaboratively to achieve a positive and supportive place where mental and emotional health can thrive.

You're ready to start feeling better and are interested in a holistic approach embracing: forgiveness, self esteem, trauma , anxiety, depression, co-dependency, loneliness and learning to tap into your inner resilience.
No matter how hard you try to move forward, you feel like your taking one step back. You’re a high performer with perfectionism tendencies and always put on a smile, which helps you forget your pain. You feel you will never be fully happy and never be able to fully enjoy life how others do, because of your many losses, attributing to your decreased self esteem. You may keep friends and family at a distance, to protect yourself from yet another inevitable loss. You may have stopped exercising and taking care of yourself the way you used to, since it takes too much work and you're just surviving at the end of another long day.

I also have experience in Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, Relationships, Anger Management, and Trauma .
As a Marriage & Family Therapist/Counselor my goal is to provide families, couples and individuals with a safe environment where they can explore themselves and the possibility of change within their life and their relationships. Our lives are centered on relationships with others. Relationships are the building blocks of life; but, they can also be very debilitating. When those relationships become troubled, sometimes assistance from family and friends may not be enough to find balance within yourself or other relationships. Lucky for us, there are people who have dedicated their lives to helping others along their journey.

I enjoy working with a broad range of issues and populations but have experience with: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Issues; Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming issues; HIV/AIDS; Chronic Illness; Racial Minority Stress issues; Men and Masculinity issues; College Student Transitions; Trauma and Resilience; and Psychotherapy with Mental Health Practitioners.
I feel that one of the biggest gifts I have been given is the opportunity to work alongside individuals in their respective life journeys. I value the whole person, respect individual and cultural diversity, and view psychotherapy as a supportive, healing element to people's lives. I identify primarily from an Interpersonal perspective, placing heavy emphasis on the power of relationships. Whether talking about relation to self, family and friends, or significant others, I believe that much of how we experience the world (and its hardships) can be shaped by the meaningful and complicated experiences we have with others.
