As a licensed professional counselor, my goal is to help individuals, couples, and families identify areas where change is needed to enhance growth, harmony, and balance in their lives. I take a holistic approach to therapy by incorporating a variety of therapeutic models in my practice including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy (i.e., meditation, guided imagery, deep breathing), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Play Therapy, Art Therapy, and Sand Tray Therapy.
I have particular expertise working with trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sexual abuse, Dissociative Identity Disorder, eating disorders, attachment issues, anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Asperger's Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, and psychosis.
I work enjoy working with children as young as 3 years old, adolescents, and adults. I incorporate Canine-Assisted Therapy and Canine-Assisted Play Therapy (CAPT) into sessions for those who desire, using Pugz, our certified therapy dog.
