Psychotherapy

In-clinic sessions

I know that the benefits of in-person therapy are powerful. My office is set up to be a safe and comfortable space to support the impactful work we will do together. 

remote sessions

While most people do prefer the personal connection that comes with in-person appointments, the convenience of telehealth is undeniable. I offer both and recommend that clients utilize telehealth, as needed. 

Professional Psychotherapy Services Provided

Talk Therapy

I utilize different theoretical approaches to help clients move towards healing. This means I incorporate different types of talk therapies into one eclectic style which is influenced by your needs and where you are in your healing journey.  Most of the work I do is trauma therapy for adults who have experienced childhood trauma, negative experiences, and loss.

Trauma Focused Therapy

What is trauma focused therapy? Great question! My unique style of trauma focused therapy allows us to utilize an eclectic blend of different types of talk therapies combined with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) to move you closer to reaching your therapeutic goals. EMDR therapy services are not just for trauma. EMDR, like other trauma-informed psychotherapy services, can be used to help heal from depression, phobias, and other effects of childhood trauma.

EMDR Intensive Sessions

People often ask “How is EMDR done?” and “How many EMDR sessions will I need?” The first question varies depending on the therapist. The second question depends on where you are in your healing process and how complex your trauma experience is. Trauma-reprocessing therapy done in longer sessions can move you towards healing sooner and help you start enjoying life again. These intensive therapy sessions are usually only appropriate for those who have been in therapy for a while or who are ready to take their recovery to the next level. 

Treatment Specialties

Chronic Stress

Chronic stress, often linked to difficult past experiences and/or childhood trauma, can significantly impact mental health. Understanding its effects on daily life is crucial for managing stress symptoms and seeking appropriate support. Hypervigilance and dissociation can interfere with you life and your relationships. Seeking professional help or therapy can help you develop resilience and build adaptive strategies.

Trauma-related Disorders

Trauma-related disorders, often linked to difficult past experiences, can significantly impact mental health. Understanding the effects on daily life, as well as mental and physical health, is crucial for managing trauma symptoms. Seeking professional help or therapy can help you develop resilience and build adaptive strategies as you heal from past traumatic experiences. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is one of the most effective treatments for trauma-related disorders.

Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Nightmares, flashbacks or re-experiencing past events, and avoidance of trauma triggers are key symptoms of Posttraumatic stress disorder and Complex PTSD. Complex PTSD also involves many other distressing symptoms and experiences such as hypervigilance (being on high alert most of the time) and dissociation (feeling apart from your body or the present moment).

Depression

Depression can be painful and debilitating. Getting to the bottom of the situations and events which had contributed to depression can be a helpful part of the recovery process. Difficult experiences can leave a person feeling hopeless, guilty, and worthless and lead to depression. Understanding the symptoms and seeking appropriate therapeutic support can help you manage this disorder and advocate for yourself at work and in your relationships.

Anxiety

Anxiety comes in many forms, and the type of anxiety you have can indicate what kind of treatment you need. Social anxiety, Chronic stress, and generalized anxiety sometimes have trauma as an underlying cause.

Grief & Loss

Grief and loss can be traumatic. Grief isn't always about losing a loved one to death. Sometimes divorce or losing a job or experiencing a change in the way you see yourself can be experienced as a profound loss. Therapy can help.

Clients tend to get the best results when they attend therapy once per week. More or less frequent sessions can be accomodated. Discuss the benefits of therapy frequency with your therapist.

Goodness of fit is important in a therapeutic relationship. If your therapist is not open to discussing concerns or consistently doesn’t seem to “get” you, bring up your concerns. A good therapist can help you work through these issues or refer you to someone better suited to work with your particular issues. 

How many sessions you will need depends entirely on the nature of your issues and your goals for recovery. Discuss this with your therapist.
