My Approach to Helping

Our primary therapeutic tools include EMDR, Attachment Theory, Narrative Therapy, and Internal Family Systems-informed psychotherapy. Ultimately, those are just words that support our beliefs that healing and help happen when there’s a good working relationship between the client and the counselor. We’ve seen it time and time again, so we work hard to build a therapeutic rapport so that you can be seen and heard for who you are. Some of the best feedback we’ve ever been given was when a client said at their closing session, “I’ve never had anybody listen to me the way that you listen to me. You remember things that I’ve said, and I know that you really care.”

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We have a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) and Clinical Social Work Associates (CSWA) on our staff. We have worked with hundreds of adults with severe and persistent mental illness in hospital settings, community mental health clinics, and eating disorder clinics.

Techniques I Use


  • EMDR External link

    As an approved EMDR therapist I have 40 hours of official training with extensive supervision. I’ve also obtained additional training and consultation in this field.

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    As a level 1 IFS therapist I have over 100 hours of official training with extensive supervision. I’ve also obtained additional training and consultation in this field.

Issues I Treat


  • Historical Trauma External link

    This can also be identified as “complex trauma” which is my primary focus of work and the area where I have the most training in and success with.

  • Abuse External link

    Trauma from abuse can be difficult to treat. I have sought out additional training in trauma treatment and trauma studies to help treat the aftermath of abuse.

  • Dissociative Disorder (DD) External link

    Often seen when someone has complex trauma, dissociative disorder can be a challenging occurance. I have training in, and experience with, working with this disorder. I work from an internal family systems-informed perspective.

  • PTSD External link

    Trauma is my primary focus and I use EMDR and an internal family systems-informed perspective.
