LPC, Brainspotting certified, EFT trained, PET trained
Being an effective therapist is crucial for me! I spend hours each week outside the therapy room, in what Dr. Scott Miller calls “deliberate practice”. This is strategizing, reading, learning from colleagues, & reflecting on the efficacy of my work with my clients. Research shows that therapists who intentionally engage in these actions do better therapy. I am always growing & learning because I know this is what makes me an effective & skilled therapist. I aim to be the therapist I would seek out. My motto is, “I thrive when my clients thrive.”
Couples. Trauma. PTSD. Pre-Marital. Marriage & Family. // These are some of my specialties. I have a Master's in Marriage & Family Therapy as well as extensive training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). I treat trauma using both Brainspotting (BSP) & Prolonged-Exposure Therapy. I also use DBT & CBT skills and interventions.
I enjoy guiding disconnected couples to show vulnerability, give comfort, & find safety & happiness. I love doing Pre-Marital counseling & see this as a way to prevent destructive patterns. I also provide co-parenting/divorce transition therapy. I am skilled in navigating relationships with addictive/difficult personalities. My job is a calling, & I love it.
