I am entering my fourth year in a clinical psychology doctorate program. I have two years of experience delivering individual and group therapy in private practice, community mental health facilities, and alternative school settings. My specialties include substance use disorders, mood disorders, trauma, and relational challenges. Each one of these problems affects one's ability to connect with others. In our work together, I hope to help you uncover the patterns that keep you from feeling connected with others.
My therapy approach is attachment based and solution focused. The integrative approach used involves cognitive-behavioral, emotion based, and solution-focused techniques as well as experiential approaches. I additionally have specialized training in EMDR, and my direct supervisor is a certified EMDR consultant.
Choosing a therapist is not easy. I know that if you are seeking therapy, you are in distress and are seeking to be understood. I work to make the environment safe by providing unconditional positive regard and validating your experiences, while also exploring emotions, alternative thinking patterns, and healthy coping skills.
