With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; including depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is, as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client. One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving and accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.
I am certified in TF-CBT, an evidence-based trauma modality and have worked with many trauma related cases with children and adults, related to sexual abuse and domestic violence. In addition, I am certified in PCIT, Parent-Child Interactive Therapy to help at-risk parents relate to their children more effectively.
I have a compassionate mindfulness practice and offer creative solution-focused approaches to reduce anxiety, depression, anger and relational conflict. I use art therapy in addition to talk therapy and like to challenge my clients with multiple creative approaches such as journaling, photography, collage making and painting to explore self discovery.
