Specialties

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) I provide psychotherapy for children, teens, adults, and families. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than a quarter of Americans experience depression, anxiety or another mental disorder in any given year.  In addition to that 25%, many more people experience difficulty with life stressors, serious illness, death of a loved one, and relationship issues. Obtaining support in the form of therapy is one of the best decisions you can make if you are having difficulties in your life.

The following specialities make-up about 60-80% of my practice:

  • Trauma Survivors specifically those who experienced an early childhood trauma(s)
  • Adolescents struggling with anxiety and/or depression
  • Young adults diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism

I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Reflective Parenting.  Work with my clients often involves a collaborative approach incorporating these and other techniques based upon on the individual’s needs.
