My Approach to Helping

The character of the therapist is an important factor in helping clients to change. I love my work and have a genuine respect for the people with whom I counsel. I form a team effort with clients as we work, because I consider both of us to be experts in dealing with their problems. Even though people may not feel like an expert, I am experienced at helping them recognize the expertise they have, then helping them to grow and develop more skills. Regardless of whether the issue is small or large, recent or long term, I give it my full care and attention.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Military families, due to my experience in helping them with the challenges of deployment, reintegration, and combat trauma.
Dissociative Identity Disorder due to my training from the ISST-D and extensive experience helping people with this condition.
People who want to reclaim their lives from the injuries of PTSD, since I use the highly effective treatment of EMDR.
