About My Clients

My practice focuses on trauma recovery and sleep problems. Some of my clients deal with both of these issues, while some are only affected by one. But both have a major impact on all areas of life. Many of my clients feel helpless because other treatments did not work. I practice evidence-based therapy that can help even if other treatments have failed. I have specific experience working with survivors of abuse/assault, servicemembers, & Veterans.

My Background and Approach

I have been working with survivors of trauma for nearly 20 years, from survivors of childhood abuse, to combat Veterans, to clients who have lived through natural disasters. It is hard work and requires trust to be established. But there is nothing more gratifying than harnessing the resilience in each of us and helping clients move from trauma to recovery. Sleep disruption is very common, whether you've experienced trauma or not. However, it is also very treatable. The most dramatic improvements I've seen have been in Veterans who resolved 40+ years of insomnia after just a handful of sessions. I practice cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), an individualized approach that is tailored to your needs. CBT can help you to cope with painful emotions, examine thoughts that cause you distress, and change behaviors that have kept you "stuck." After getting to know you and your goals, we can collaboratively choose a treatment that makes sense for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify with causes that strive for equality, access to healthcare and education, and protecting the environment. I am a member of a local community service organization and have hosted an AirBnB for stray cats more often than I'd like to admit.
