About

I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to challenge and change maladaptive cognitive distortions and behaviors which have negatively impacted ones life, and provide tools to improve emotion regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies to effectively problem solve independently. I am also certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), which is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences stemming from a variety of stressors, most notably: trauma, depression, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, and PTSD.
Some of my experience includes 5 years in an outpatient setting, where I treated adults with mental illness, as well as 7 years in an inpatient setting with individuals who struggled with drug addiction, trauma, and co-occurring mental health diagnosis. For LPC Associates going through the licensing process, I am board approved to provide supervision.
Change is always difficult, but you do not have to do it alone. You have already taken the first important step in becoming the best version of yourself, allow me to provide you with the feedback and support geared to enhance healing and personal growth, in an effort to help you reach your life goals.
