About My Clients

My specialties include working with complex PTSD/ Trauma (emotional, sexual, physical, neglect, incest, rape, etc.), attachment issues, dissociation/multiplicity, depersonalization/derealization, general relationship issues, anxiety, depression,fears/phobias, grief, etc. If you struggle from from nightmares, flashbacks, memory loss, or body memories from trauma, therapy is beneficial.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is eclectic. Therapy is tailored collaboratively with the client based on their needs. I have been trained in a variety of modules, including Trauma Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Brainspotting, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and a somatic therapy called Trauma Resiliency Module (TRM). I am also a Certified EMDR therapist. I have also completed the Complex Trauma Certification Training Level 1 & 2 (CCTP/CCTP-II) Course with Janina Fisher (specific training to treat Trauma, Complex Trauma and Dissociative Disorders). This is a modality that includes Sensorimotor, Internal Family Systems (parts-work), and mindfulness strategies that help clients connect to their minds, bodies, emotions, and their traumatic events without feeling overwhelmed and avoidant. Parts work makes space for the conflicts between parts of the self.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
