About

My practice is currently full. I have extensive experience with PTSD, trauma, sexual abuse depression, anxiety, and dissociative identity disorder (DID). I use the Trauma Resiliency Model, ACT, DBT, CBT, CPT, Equine Therapy, and mindfulness. I work with Veterans, correction officers, and also individuals who suffered years of abuse. I do not see children/ teenagers, there are other therapists much more qualified at working with children than me. I work from a strengths-based model with an emphasis on goals.
Please email me to start our discussion. It is difficult to answer calls as I am in session most of the time. Starting with an email we can discuss what you would like to work on and your goals for therapy. This is an important investment of your time and resources so let's make sure we will be making the type of progress you are looking for.
I am currently doing all teletherapy and find that many people quickly forget we are not face to face. This can be very convenient I have late afternoon and evening appointments. Before the pandemic, I was working out of my home office. My home is a farm and rescued pugs, horses donkeys and geese live here.
