Depression negatively affects the way that you feel, think, and act. If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression. I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to, once again, have hope for their lives.
Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of treatment for trauma. Most commonly, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are used in treating trauma.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from different treatment approaches.
CBT can help with challenge unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors through self-awareness of your emotions and distinguish healthy from unhealthy feelings.
I might integrate different techniques from mindfulness and meditation, to expressive art and play modalities, to dialectical behavioral therapy.
I specialize in treating trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and all the unique challenges military members, veterans, and their families face. Specifically, I have helped those with PTSD, combat trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, and military lifestyle difficulties.
