I work with survivors of PTSD and Complex trauma, including relationship trauma and dissociation disorders. Common issues my clients present with include challenges with setting relationship boundaries with friends and family, coping with intense emotions, and an inability to be decisive in small or big life choices. Many are survivors of sexual or physical childhood abuse. Others say "childhood wasn't that bad," but have an intense inner critic and struggle with attracting and maintaining positive relationships and occupations, and are often unaware of the impact of emotional neglect and harsh criticism they experienced.
I primarily utilize EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Using these methods I’ve seen clients report increases in their confidence to calm intense emotions, become more decisive in making difficult life choices, and create a more positive view of themselves. With couples I use Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy.
I believe all clients have the capacity to heal and grow when provided a non-judgemental, honest, and compassionate space. My practice provides this while focusing on identifying goals and solutions to target the obstacles that keep you from finding contentment and peace. Taking these first steps in never easy, but neither is continuing to suffer.

Research shows that above all else, the relationship the client has with the therapist is the most important aspect of successfully completing therapy. I will work with you to create goals and a treatment plan that combines the models of therapy that you feel is a confident, good fit for you. My goal is you finish therapy feeling accomplished and supported, and able to manage and enjoy your life.

First session of therapy can be intimidating. Our first hour will be an intentional, relational conversation for us to get to know one another, because if you're not comfortable, no progress can be made. I will answer your questions about the therapy process and myself. I'm plain spoken and direct when it comes to explaining what you can expect from this process. There are no surprises.
