I specialize in treatment of PTSD, Complex Trauma, Early Attachment Trauma and Dissociative Disorders. I am an EMDRIA Certified EMDR Therapist & Approved Consultant (www.emdria.org)  I am trained by ASCH at the Intermediate Level in Clinical Hypnosis- I am a Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level 1 Graduate. My theoretical approach is tailored to fit individual needs.  I utilize EMDR Therapy,  Ego-State Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy,  Clinical Hypnosis,  Person Centered Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy models, which look at the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Concepts from other theoretical perspectives are integrated as appropriate.

I facilitate the client in the discovery of their own personal resolutions. My style of counseling is focused on self-exploration and increasing an individual's level of understanding surrounding their current life circumstances, and their own behaviors and reactions to those situations.  I have a desire to understand each client, and utilize my therapeutic skills and knowledge of psychology and human behavior to facilitate growth. My philosophy is that a client is much more inclined to make possible their own solutions, if they are responsible for creating them.

I have extensive  training and skills working trauma survivors, including early attachment trauma, DTD,  PTSD, C-PTSD, dissociative disorders, anxiety, depression, as well as with narcissistic abuse survivors and adult children of narcissist or alcohol abuse ACON ACOA.  I accommodate any religious background as well as atheist, agnostic, and non-religious clients.

I am offering online psychotherapy sessions via video or phone during COVID-19 for residents of Washington State and Texas.
