Hello and welcome!

Have you or your child experienced unsettling, stressful, scary, or traumatic situations that are impacting your daily life? Or have you noticed life is feeling chaotic and unmanageable, or seeming to spin you out of control? Your symptoms might include excessive amounts of worry, difficulty sleeping, negative beliefs about yourself or the world, irritability, low mood, or thoughts and memories that intrude on your daily life.  If this sounds familiar, you are likely in the right place!

I provide a client centered approach focusing on building and maintaining a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Research has shown that a strong therapeutic alliance is just as impactful as any specific modalities or treatment in helping you reach your goals! During our first few sessions we will focus on understanding the history and context of your symptoms, developing treatment goals, and making sure I am the right therapist for your needs.

My role as your therapist will be to speed up your brain’s natural healing process by providing skills and interventions specific to your needs. One of my favorite ways to do this is with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy).  Based on your needs and preferences, I can also incorporate TF-CBT (trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy), CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), Motivational Interviewing, and Gestalt Therapy.

My book recommendations:

Set Boundaries, Find Peace: a guide to reclaiming yourself by Nedra Glover Tawwab

Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy by Francine Shapiro

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel Van Der Kolk

Untamed by Glennon Doyle
