Supervised by Nikkie Evans, LCPC
I use ERP with clients who suffer with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. After providing my clients with coping skills, we identify obsessions and compulsions they may suffer from. ERP focuses on exposing ourselves to our fears and obsessions without engaging in our typical coping mechanisms (ex. hand washing, checking behaviors, etc). It is highly effective in treating OCD.
I equip my clients with mindfulness-based techniques to curb panic attacks, decrease anxiety, increase quality of sleep, and improve overall quality of life.
I use CPT primarily with clients who have suffered with traumatic life experiences. I support my clients in processing trauma, understanding trauma responses, identifying triggers, and reframing beliefs that stem from trauma. My clients report a reduction in frequency of triggers, a decrease in the magnitude of trauma responses, a decrease in negative beliefs surrounding trauma, and an overall improvement in quality of life.
I treat PTSD using a combination of CBT, Mindfulness, ACT, and CPT. CPT, Cognitive Processing Therapy, focuses on processing trauma, reframing thoughts associated with trauma, and moving on following trauma. I also have substantial experience in treating C-PTSD.
