My Approach to Helping
Welcome and thanks for checking out my page. My approach would be to create a safe place where you can share and feel understood. Together we can work on a treatment plan that works best for you. The goals would be realistic and reachable for you.
My background experience has prepared me to be sensitive with issues dealing with past stressors that are trauma related. I have received specialized training as a story informed trauma therapist that deals with abuse, relationship and mental health concerns. I also incorporate CBT and DBT techniques to help navigate our thoughts and emotions and utilize healthier coping skills. For the past 20 years I have worked in many settings which include: group homes, mental health agencies and medical hospitals. I believe in a holistic approach that pays attention to all aspects of your mind, body and spirit. This is essential in maximizing your overall health and function.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy is beneficial in many ways. Research has shown that psychotherapy can target certain circuits of our brain for changes. For decades, it has become clear that mental processes derive from mechanisms of the brain. This means that any change in our psychological processes such as the way we think is reflected by changes in the structures of our brain.
Chronic stress has played a significant factor in a variety of health problems. To name a few, this can include autoimmune diseases, sleep disturbance, high blood pressure and gastro concerns. Stress has been a factor with illnesses and can impact your recovery. With psychotherapy and understanding your trauma, you can build the tools needed to manage the cause of your stress and improve your function in life.
