My areas of expertise include treating Trauma, Depression. Anxiety, and Substance Use Disorders. I am currently living abroad, so my availability to meet for individual therapy sessions via telehealth would work well for someone who has a non-traditional schedule. I take a trauma-informed approach, working with each client on things such as resource building (developing coping skills or identifying strengths they have, for example), relationship building, and gaining a stronger sense of self. For individuals who are seeking residential Trauma treatment, I also provide services for Yatra Trauma Treatment Center in Thailand.
Utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and IFS-informed therapy, clients will generally gain education on, and practice with, : identifying, challenging, and replacing unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving; increasing awareness of stress or uncomfortable feelings and regulating emotions; healing pain and transforming pain into growth.
One of the most difficult things to do is to put our hand up and admit that we need help. Whether we are struggling with loneliness, sadness, or uncontrollable worry, it can be challenging to talk about the thoughts and the feelings we are experiencing. I respect the difficulty one faces in asking for help and encourage everyone to get help if they need it.
