My Ideal Client

I help people who have ongoing symptoms and negative life impacts from recent and childhood/complex PTSD and desire to seek relief from distress and gain calmness, clarity, and confidence again. PTSD and stress affect people in a variety of ways, ranging from problems with addictions, anger, anxiety, compulsive behaviors, disorganization, distractibility, eating, emotional dysregulation, guilt, health, intrusive thoughts, panic, relationships, sadness, shame, sleep, work, and more.

My Background and Approach

I have a strong background in psychotherapy research at both the undergraduate and graduate level, focusing on attachment, trauma, psychiatric interventions, brain imaging, and self-help interventions. I believe most mental health symptoms originate from early attachment and stressful events, and that revisiting these early life experiences helps people develop more adaptive emotional and cognitive responses to present-day stressors. I specialize in the evidence-based therapies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Lifespan Integration, Group Therapy, and Neurofeedback for adults. Most of my clients enjoy the eclectic elements of these non-linear right brain therapies, ranging from brief exposure, insightfulness, mind-body awareness, and the unconscious. My approach is a combination of lightheartedness and kindness, alongside being directive and honest.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my partner, pup, family, friends, listening to audiobooks, keeping up with the news, learning, whole-food plant-based cuisine, being physically active, helping my dad restore a vintage car, attempting to forage for mushrooms, and being an imperfect "good enough" human. My most recommended "pop-psy" books related to trauma and stress: "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel van der Kolk; "Healing the Shame that Binds You" by John Bradshaw; "Stop Walking on Eggshells" by Paul T Mason and Randi Kreger; "Waking Up" by Sam Harris; "Full Catastrophe Living" by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and many books by Gabor Maté, Julie and John Gottman, and Irvin Yalom.
