I see our work together as a team that balances putting in the hard work while understanding you have to have some laughs along the way! Above all modalities, the therapeutic relationship is what I value most in our work together. I primarily use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Art Therapy. Despite my degree in art therapy, my dual license allows me to provide more traditional talk therapy, too.

I work with clients whose PTSD, anxiety, depression, and addictions were caused by relational trauma. This kind of trauma occurs when the actions of another violate the trust on which a relationship was built. The experience of profound and unexpected betrayal (as children or adults) can be deeply traumatic and cause lasting changes in the areas of the brain responsible for regulating emotion, thought, and memory.

Therapy is something that should make room for you to be you, not just in the session, but in its outcome. People are constantly bombarded with competing pressures to be, think, and/or act a certain way in multiple settings, all while having the pressure of what the future could be put on them. I believe that therapy should be a safe space to explore all of the issues that may exist everywhere in our lives where good intentions are assumed in a caring, kind, and in an emotionally safe environment. Come as you are, and bring your humor. I will let you all know that I will challenge you and give homework from time to time.
