My practice is dedicated to listening carefully and offering insight with compassion and care. I provide a safe environment, through an interpersonal psychodynamic approach, to do therapeutic work with vulnerable issues. Here you will find a nurturing space to understand and heal emotional experiences.
I work with adolescents and adults dealing with depression, anxiety, anger, traumatic stress, eating disorders, addiction and recovery, and relationship issues. Using methods including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and somatic awareness, existing thought and behavior patterns can be transformed to enable more satisfying personal experiences and relationships. Clients can remove emotional roadblocks, improve communication skills, and cultivate a sense of personal satisfaction.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (#91090), providing EMDR as a Certified EMDR Therapist Trained by EMDR International Association (EMDRIA), with advanced rpotocol training in addictions, dissociation, and somatics. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT) from the Medical University of South Carolina and a Certified Anger Management Facilitator (CAMF), Emotional Intelligence Coach, and Systematic Training for Effective Parenting Instructor (STEP).
