The one thing I am sure of is healing IS possible. I help adults who struggle with addictions, PTSD, and drug/alcohol addictions.
Psychologist in Berkeley, CA
ACT is my passion- from the first time I learned about the approach. I have sought out trainings since then, and utilize ACT daily with my clients.
CBT is a gold-standard approach that can be used to address numerous diagnoses. All of my clinical training has involved CBT approaches, and I integrate CBT into my work.
I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing and currently in a consultation group to enhance my skills.
My past experiences include providing therapy in groups and individually to adults with drug dependence and addictions, including in domiciliary, residential, and outpatient settings.
As above, I have provided treatment for adults in a variety of settings who have struggled with alcohol abuse or dependence.
Trauma is, unfortunately, pervasive and affects a large number of people. Whether the trauma is due to childhood experiences, losses, sexual assaults, or military experience, trauma shows up in different ways and affects people differently. I work with clients to address the symptoms that may interfere with their lives the most- whether it's emotional numbing, increased paranoia, difficulties with sleep, anger management, or anxiety.
I have worked with Veterans through the VA, providing end-of-life psychosocial support, addictions treatment, and therapy for PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
