I have training and experience in a number of evidence based clinical approaches and work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from trauma therapy to stress management, and beyond. I specialize in working with military veterans and first responders and approach this work from a trauma informed perspective. In a safe, supportive and confidential environment we will discuss your struggles and your strengths, identify your goals and together we will develop a treatment plan which will best suit your needs.
There are a number of "evidence based" treatment approaches which have been proven to be effective in treating trauma. The three approaches which have been identified by the VA and DOD as the most effective treatments for PTS in Veterans are EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. During the course of therapy we will discuss each of these approaches and determine an effective treatment plan based on your experiences and preferences.
Strength Based Approach
I also utilize a strength based approach. Although you may currently be struggling, I am sure that there have been times in your life where you have been successful, felt strong, and contributed in a positive way. In an authentic, comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I will help you recall those times and highlight your strengths in order to provide an opportunity for you to access the feelings associated with those successes and positive attributes to help you through more difficult times.
If you are injured, disabled or have other circumstances that make it difficult to travel to an in-office appointment, I offer mobile therapeutic services, when deemed appropriate. If you have questions about mobile services or any of the services I provide, please contact me and I can answer any questions you may have.
