Psychotherapy for Adults & Children

As an EMDR board certified therapist, I am committed to helping survivors of trauma heal. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with acute and complex PTSD, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and relationship issues. Through EMDRIA/CPT board certifications, advanced trainings, consultations with leaders in the field of trauma informed psychotherapy, and working as staff clinician at the PTSD clinic at Veteran’s Heath Administration, I have mastered how to refine and customize culturally competent treatments to fit each individual’s unique needs and improve therapeutic outcomes for trauma, anxiety, depression, shame, and eating disorders.

Services

Through advanced trainings, certifications and consultations with leaders in the field of trauma informed psychotherapy, I have mastered how to refine and customize culturally competent treatments to fit each individual’s unique needs and improve therapeutic outcomes for trauma, anxiety, depression, shame, addictions, eating disorders, and racial trauma.

My therapeutic approach includes both evidence based, traditional psychotherapy and an appreciation for spiritual values. I work with clients of all ages to explore relationship challenges, to develop personal autonomy, and to enhance professional creativity and confidence.

My Approach & Philosophy

     I provide a non-judgmental, compassionate atmosphere where clients can safely explore and work through feelings and thoughts.

     My belief is that each individual is a unique being with emotional, mental, personal, cultural, and developmental needs. I honor and celebrate diversity by recognizing, accepting, honoring and celebrating unique cultural attributes.

     My goal is to help clients gain insight into both conscious and unconscious roadblocks that exacerbate anxiety and depression.

     I am dedicated to providing therapy that is collaborative, strengths-based and empowering.
