My Approach

My practice strives to treat those who have been impacted by traumatic events. I have found some are affected by trauma through 'isolated occurrences', while others may experience recurring negative events spanning a longer period of time. The impact of these life experiences can also vary from person to person, be it; depression, anxiety, addictions, mood swings, anger, low self-worth, etc.. I specialize in helping people best identify the source of their unwanted, and highly disruptive, emotional issues and work towards extinguishing them. In so doing, I use a variety of techniques based in "systemic" and interpersonal therapy, to increase awareness of one's self in social and familial context. Additionally, understanding the nature of the body and mind's reaction to trauma, and identifying personal strategies to cope and to achieve lasting satisfaction, is the end goal I offer assistance with.

My Background

The basis of my training as a family therapist focused on systemic principles and practices. In essence this is a contrast to the individual-focused heath model, and instead emphasizes understanding and utilizing the context (i.e. relationships, societal and cultural factors, etc..) of our lives to make treatment more effect. My primary clinical emphasis is around treating emotional trauma, which I offer the treatment method of EMDR therapy for. I also have significant training and education in attachment theory, and attachment-related interventions. Additionally I enjoy working with and welcome members of all cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds into my practice. Included in my interests and training is work with members of the LGBTQ community.
