Because of my philosophy

about the value of deeper psychological work and my training as a trauma therapist, I work from a Psychodynamic or Object Relations perspective. I also use Attachment Theory. I have been trained in many other modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy and borrow from those when the treatment calls for it. While solution-focused and new age short terms therapies are gaining lots of notoriety and popularity amongst mental health practitioners and therapy consumers, deeper psychological work can often promote more lasting and sustained change. I am passionate about my work and want to help people beyond basic symptom reduction, which is why my theoretical orientation is based in insight-oriented techniques. One’s individual psychology is usually quite complex and requires some time and dedication from the client and the therapist together to help not only eradicate presenting problems, but gain insight into what may be underneath the presenting issue(s).

I typically work with adults in individual therapy from 18 years of age and up. I have extensive experience working with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, substance abuse issues, depression, anxiety, post-partum related difficulties, religious transitions, religious traumas, grief, existential crisis, relationship difficulties and general life transitions. I am completing a Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy training and soon will be seeing clients that are interested in KAP. I have a fair amount of experience and very much enjoy working with fellow mental health therapists in psychotherapy. Aside from my clinical work, I offer clinical supervision and business consultation services.
