I value empathy, kindness, science, curiosity, and openness to other perspectives. I enjoy working with clients who share those values.
Psychologist in Pennsylvania
I have been working with survivors of sexual abuse and assault for 20 years and find this to be some of the most important work I do. Historically, we've avoided talking about it or blamed the survivor. I'm grateful that these attitudes are starting to change. Trust can be difficult to build after surviving abuse or assault, but I will provide a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic space to help you recover and reclaim your life.
I have advanced training and expertise in evidence-based treatments for PTSD, including Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure. In fact, my day job involves teaching these treatments to other clinicians and offering consultation. Trauma can disrupt the lives of survivors. But there is resilience in each of us waiting to be tapped. Effective treatments exist and can help you get your life back. I will help you explore which treatment is right for you.
I have advanced training and expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI) and the treatment of nightmares. In fact, my full time job is teaching these approaches to other clinicians and offering consultation. This type of treatment is so rewarding to offer because clients typically see results quickly. And once their sleep improves, so do other areas of life.
