Methodology

My Approach:

Many people believe that post traumatic stress is something they have to learn to live with. This is unfortunate! And untrue. We now have treatments that reduce/ resolve symptoms of PTSD, Complex PTSD, and Combat Trauma. As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you resolve past traumas so that you can lead a life that is worth celebrating. Utilizing cutting-edge therapeutic approaches we can not only resolve big traumatic events, but can alter and heal long-standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions that may be interfering with your capacity to experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I utilize a combination of EMDR Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Yoga Therapy and mindfulness. In addition to my LCSW, I have a Masters Degree in Existential Phenomemological Psychology (1987). My specialty is working with military members and first responders, as well as adults with complex trauma.
