My Approach to Helping
As a Clinical Social Worker, I see myself as a generalist. This means that I have worked with individuals across their lifespan using a variety of psychotherapy modalities. My current therapeutic point of view focuses on attachment, mindfulness, and self-compassion as a route to understanding yourself. My own active duty Naval Service provides me with a unique perspective into the active duty military life as well as a familiarity with the Military Medical and Mental Health Services. While I have worked with active duty service members, another significant area of focus has been with children and adolescents.
I am a certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) Therapist through the EMDR International Association. Trauma-informed therapeutic practice is essential to my practice regardless of the issues presented. I have been trained in all the major treatment modalities and work with my clients to find an intervention that works.
