About

I have been active in mental health care for over 30 years. Many of my clients are referred because of my knowledge of PTSD and other trauma issues. I began trauma-informed psychotherapy by servicing children under the care of the Department of Children's Services. Through Play Therapy to address immediate traumatic experiences, I gained an understanding of the brain development across the human growth years. As I became expert in treatment of all ages, I learned that untreated trauma was the underlying cause of chronic anxiety, panic attacks, depression, many somatic medical problems,and cognitive learning difficulties.
Through Mindful Cognitive Therapy, we focus upon your ability to experience what is happening without a trauma interpretion: not personalizing it, not rushing to judgement, not making assumptions about the event or the other individuals, not filtering the experience through your beliefs. This creates a greater ability to enjoy life.
My personalized individual treatment for you, with relaxation & breathing training, helps to resolve the traumatic impact on the nervous system and brain. My on-going professional training in the most current techniques, along side of understanding the developing science on the neurobiological and somatic components, shape my trauma treatment .
