Profile
“I find trauma treatment to often be an essential piece to the therapeutic process.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Being a therapist is my career of choice and the only career I ever considered exploring. I knew from a young age that the therapeutic relationship would give my life meaning and purpose. I decided to focus on anxiety and OCD because of my own diagnosis with generalized anxiety disorder and OCD and my subsequent recovery process. A trauma-informed perspective recognizes the loss and experience that shapes our perspectives and sometimes defines our lives. I find trauma treatment to often be an essential piece to the therapeutic process. Without it, we are just simply treating the symptoms and not the actual origin of the symptoms. I have training in CBT, ERP, and EMDR. I am currently working toward my certification in EMDR and receive regular consultation in this modality from the best and brightest psychotherapist in this approach.
What should someone know about working with you?
During our intake, we will delve deeper into your particular concerns. Once we have explored your reasons for coming to therapy, we will talk about my impression and treatment recommendation in a collaborative approach. You are always in control of your treatment and therapy is not a one-size-fits-all model. I welcome feedback and we can change your treatment approach at any time.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As I mentioned previously, I am working toward my certification in EMDR. I receive regular supervision and consultation in this approach and am committed to maintaining my expertise in the areas of trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, and OCD. I have taken training in the art of exposure and response prevention, the role of mindfulness in the treatment of anxiety disorders, PTSD and cognitive processing, and EMDR as a phased treatment approach.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core value in the approach to therapy is always my relationship with the client. The single biggest factor predicting your success is our relationship; it must be based on mutual respect, kindness, empathy, positive regard, and honesty.
