Licensed Professional Counselor in Dallas, TX
PTSD symptoms are common results of experiencing any type of major stressor or trauma. Whether you are experiencing some or all of these symptoms, we can work together to help you dramatically decrease and eliminate these issues: intrusive thoughts, negative thoughts and feelings, irritability, anger, and many others. I have experience working with clients experiencing PTSD symptoms from my time working in a domestic violence shelter and with victims of child abuse at an advocacy center.
Domestic violence can affect people of all genders, sexualities, and social backgrounds. I worked in a domestic violence counseling center with clients experiencing on-going domestic and family violence, childhood family violence, sexual violence, and intimate partner violence across many types of relationships.
I am a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and I have experience working with clients across the spectrum. Whether or not you are experiencing issues directly related to your gender or sexuality, I aim to provide a safe place for all my clients to be open and supported, no matter where you are in your journey to understanding yourself and your identity.
I am trained in using CBT and Trauma-Focused CBT with children and adults.
I am trained in EMDR standard protocol for treating stressful and traumatic past experiences. I am also trained in the use of EMDR for acute (recent) and ongoing stressful and traumatic experiences.
I have training in play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and sand tray therapy with children ages 4 and up.
