I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to treat PTSD and trauma related sx, as well as in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to treat Borderline Personality Disorder and Traits.
I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a relationship among equals. A therapist's job is to help his or her client achieve desired goals; whether they be goals about improving relationships, learning new and more effective ways of dealing with everyday stressors, or understanding self better. I am fluent in Spanish and can also support families in dealing with issues related to acculturation, and other teen/parent challenges. I am experienced in issues relating to co-parenting and can support couples (divorced or married) in reaching agreements.

Many of my adult clients come to me struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma or loss and are unaware of just how long term the impact is on their lives.
We all hit bumps in the road that we feel unequipped to handle. If you are reading this you are probably experiencing one of those now. I work with my clients to help them to navigate thorough life's challenges. I do not have a handy manual to offer simplistic answers for your life. What I do offer is to listen to you without judgment, to help you identify the obstacles that keep you from moving forward, to help you find internal resources, and to work with you to help you discover the answers that work for you.

**Not currently accepting new patients.** I work with adult clients (over age 21) who come to treatment looking to heal from the effects of trauma. Although most of my work is with military and first responders (police, fire) who are having difficulty in their lives after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic or life-threatening event, I also treat civilians with a history of trauma experiences such as sexual assault, physical assault, motor vehicle accidents, terrorist attacks, workplace violence, and a variety of other life-altering incidents.

Depending upon the cards we've been dealt in life (what's been done to us, and what we've done to ourselves) fractures in our world view, relationships, and self concept arise. I work best with a client who comes willingly to counseling, is motivated for change, and is open minded to new perspectives of responding to their problems.

This not only creates symptom reduction and/or extinction but also produces an outcome of inner peace, joy and freedom, putting an end to trying harder, pretending or "white-knuckling" through.

When a woman discovers her spouse is involved in sexually compulsive behaviors, she often feels as though the floor has fallen out from underneath her. It seems everything she thought she knew about her spouse and her life is suddenly a lie. She feels the deepest sense of betrayal, and wonders if she will ever trust again. Her world is falling apart and there is nothing to hold onto. She feels all alone and often does not tell another living soul about the horror she has been plunged into.
