As an experienced psychotherapist: I have a passion for working with children, individuals and families seeking healing, joy or exploration
Psychotherapist in Milford, OH
Supervised by LISW-S
To enhance and personalize results for shorter term therapeutic options, I have studied, and attended many trainings focusing in on CBT techniques with a centralized focus on interventions for anxiety and depression. Specific training in DBT, and exposure therapy for OCD disorders as well as experiential mindfulness workshops exploring automatic cognitive processes and methods have been another area of interest.
Through extensive graduate studies and post graduate training with the Family Therapy institute of Cincinnati, specifically studying the works of Murry Bowen and receiving weekly clinical supervised consults on case studies for over 6 years, I have examined structural family therapy and utilize the genogram often in practice with both families and individuals to help clients gain insight and understanding into function and dysfunction within families.
Through extensive studies in process oriented therapies including Erikson and Art Therapy founded in part in Jungian psychology, I have studied and attended training on Psychodynamic approaches to healing and discovery. Exploring emotions, thoughts, early life experiences and beliefs which contribute to how we see the word today and react to it and the people in it, allows us the opportunity to change our patterns. Training on defense mechanisms and empowerment also help transform world views.
