I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help locked memories quickly process, reducing the discomfort provided by anxiety. EMDR has shown to be effective in treating related anxiety disorders, including PTSD, panic, and many others.

My early work as a therapist concentrated on working with school-aged young children, adolescents, and young adults for over six years. During that time, the most common client I met with would be an adolescent who was faced with financial, cultural, social, familial, academic, behavioral, and legal difficulties. Different age groups require different interventions based on developmental stage, and I use this informed approach in tailor-making an effective treatment plan. Common issues I treat include depression, anxiety, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, trauma, abuse, ADHD, anger management, decision-making, grief, PTSD, self-harm, self-esteem, social phobia, and family issues. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is an effective, evidence-based practice commonly used in treating and healing the pain of trauma and abuse.
