For the past 20 years, I have worked with children, teens, and adults who presented with symptoms of depression, anxiety, psychosis, self-mutilation, suicide ideation, cutting, substance abuse, mood instability (i.e., bipolar disorder), grief, interpersonal violence, and post-trauma responses. I have worked with clients of diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds, gender, and sexual orientation. And for the past 13 years, I have specialized in working with trauma survivors. I use various modalities, including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, art modality, mindfulness-based intervention, sandtray therapy, and somatic-processing based therapy (specifically Somatic Experiencing), that are tailored to each specific client. Throughout the sessions, building curiosity, ensuring a sense of safety, (re)establishing a sense of self-empowerment and strength is the fundamental work in strengthening the therapeutic relationship and optimizing results.
