My areas of specialty are in PTSD, Complex PTSD, Developmental Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Domestic Violence, Grief, Life Transitions, Parenting, Relationship Issues, Self-Esteem, Self-Harm, and Sexual Abuse. I have gone through extensive training in order to provide the most effective techniques for treating trauma in adolescents and adults.
I am very honest and direct in my approach to therapy. I tend to focus on resolving the root problem versus treating the symptoms that are often a result of the problem. By focusing on the root problem, we decrease the intensity and duration of your symptoms to the point that they become more manageable. I also consider my approach as integrative in that I utilize many different approaches and techniques based on a clients needs. I often express that it's the clients job to identify what they would like to get out of therapy and it's my job to figure out how we are going to get there. It is also essential to my work that you feel comfortable, listened to, supported, and most of all, safe.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends on the weekends, going to the gym, Pilates & heated Yoga, listening to audio-books, and being at the cabin where we enjoy fishing and boating.
