Psychotherapist in Washington, DC
Supervised by Dr. Greg Jones Clinical Psychologist
I had my formal training in CBT through my masters program. This is the most empirically proven theory of therapy and is the major basis for my theoretical orientation. I have been practicing CBT and it’s many interventions for 8 years.
I am a trained clinician in EMDR. I was trained through the EMDRIA licensing board. I have seen wonderful results with the clients I have worked with and have truly seen lives changed.
I am a PhD student in Clinical Sexology and work with individuals and couples regarding sexual issues. Sexual issues may include: compulsive sexual behaviors, erectile disorder, orgasm issues, desire issues, consensual non monogamy, connecting with your partner through sex, etc... I am a kink informed provider as well and help clients navigate this area of life and how to increase their sexual satisfaction.
I am trained in EMDR and have used this method of therapy to help people reclaim power in their lives and move beyond the traumas of their past. EMDR helps re wire the brain so that the amygdala stops being triggered at moments when it is not needed, putting you in flight or fight on a constant basis. I partner with my clients to build hope beyond trauma.
I have worked with a wide range of clients around addiction in many forms. I have worked with people struggling with anything from meth addiction to alcohol addiction. I have seen the power of therapy and working through the underlying issues that lead to these addictive behaviors. I also incorporate the of EMDR and trauma I used therapy to help with this work.
