I have worked in mental health for about 10 years. I have a wife, baby, toddler, and two teenagers. I enjoy music, video games, and tattoos.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Tulsa, OK
I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), which is an evidence-based treatment for children ages 2-7 who display externalizing behavioral issues. Children who throw tantrums, don't listen, struggle with attention, and show attention-seeking behavioral issues would be a good fit for this. Additionally, I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT is the gold standard for treating children and adolescent who have PTSD due to physical abuse or neglect, sexual abuse, or other traumatic experiences. TF-CBT is for ages 4-17, but I have used it primarily with adolescents. Trauma aside, I also work well with adolescents and their families struggling with teen-specific mental health problems. I have a lot of experience working with LGBTQIA adolescent.
As mentioned, I am certified in TF-CBT, and that it is geared towards children and adolescents. However, the same principals work with adults and can be utilized to treat adults with PTSD.
