Practicing Since: 2014
I have worked with a host of issues, but have primarily focused my work with clients who seek help to relinquish the shame they feel regarding their behaviors, past secrets and the impacts they have had on themselves and those around them. Specifically, I specialize working with adults and teens manage and heal from sexual preoccupation, sexual/porn addictions and anger management needs through providing judgement free, empathetic and structured therapeutic care.
I view my practice through an attachment theory lens, as I recognize the powerful impact our childhood attachments have on our current relationships and behaviors. Therefore, I use the relationship between myself and the client as the bases for creating a safe place to explore healing childhood wounds and generalizing that healing to other important relationships in our lives.
I have been trained in DBT skill building through the Portland DBT Institute. I utilize this modality throughout my practice with all types of clients, as I find it a very practical tool for living a healthy life.
I am trained in dialectical behavioral therapy and schema therapy in order to help clients gain awareness for their emotional needs and build distress tolerance skills. I also have five years experiencing working with both perpetrators and victims of domestic violence.
I have 10 years experience working with clients with sexual preoccupation, sexual/porn addictions and other sexual behavior issues. I utilize DBT and CBT approaches to managing these behavioral needs, focusing on building healthy coping skills and identifying motivations to changing behavior. I am also a Certified Sex Offender Therapist (CCSOT) and can provide treatment with both mandated and non-mandated clients.
I over ten years experience working with adolescents with a host of issues, including: sexual health, suicidal ideation, self-harm, moral development and social and emotional skill building. I have worked with youth in residential and outpatient settings and offer both group and individual counseling services.
