I work with couples specifically that struggle with addiction or adjusting to sobriety and other various marital issues. I specialize in PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) which is a highly effective treatment modality used to provide healing and revelation to any r
It is hard to live life in the present when the past intrudes itself without fail. From trauma of all sorts, I have extensive experience making space for your past to arrest it and break free from the past as you grow to live in your authentic present self to the fullest. I specialize in ETT (Emotional Transformational Therapy) that is a therapy incorporating light, color wavelengths, and eye movements to transform and alleviate PTSD symptoms.
