Providing individual, couples and family counseling.
Treatment specialization includes:
Trauma and Abuse:
We explore your history and determine what modality of therapy will work best for you. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). This therapy is powerful and effective in treating anxiety, depression, PTSD symptoms such hyper-vigilence, hyper-arousal, and flashbacks that are rooted in recent or past trauma. It is very effective in treating negative patterns of behavior, affects, sensations and distorted beliefs about the self and others. I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Strategies and psychodynamic modalities with this therapy as appropriate. I am also trained in Trauma Focused CBT and "Seeking Safety" as well which is effective in reducing self-destructive thinking and the overwhelming feelings that lead to high risk behaviors and move toward resolution.
Depression and Anxiety
Together will explore early relational patterns that are keeping you from moving forward. I also use a wide variety of cognitive strategies, coping skills to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.
