My Approach to Helping

I specialize in treating adults who have experienced trauma(s). I integrate a variety of therapy models into session including neuropsychology, CBT, DBT, and somatic therapy. I have experience working with first responders, military vets, medical professionals, survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, and grief. I have post graduate training in complex trauma.

I also have extensive experience working with individuals diagnosed with Autism and their family members. I have specialized training in Applied Behavior Analysis. I held certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst from 2016-2022.
