I participate in a weekly consultation group for ERP. 50% of my clients have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ages 12 and up.
I have been trained, supervised and certified by Edna Foa Ph.D and her team at CTSA for Prolonged Exposure for PTSD. I have been a certified PE therapist since 2012 and have seen hundreds of folks diagnosed with PTSD or CPTSD. 90% of my clients either came from an abusive childhood enviornment or experienced trauma at some point which is part of their therapy journey. I have been contracted with Universities to provide treatment to victims of assault on campus.
I have been extensively trained by BTech for DBT. I am passionate about evidence-based treatments. I have been providing adherent DBT since 2002 and been lucky enough to be part of Marsha Linehan's early training in MN. I have spent time with her and am amazed at how she developed DBT by herself when she was struggling and pulled from so many different therapies to create DBT. I have been to every BTech training, have been MN state certified in DBT and am constantly keeping up on new research.
