My Approach to Helping
The practice offers counseling and training services to a wide range of populations. The treatment philosophy represents the passion about people's potential to grow and change, regardless of past behaviors. While my clinical focus is on emotional, mental and spiritual challenges faced by general population, I specialize in primary and secondary trauma experienced by other mental health professionals, first responders, educators, veterans, medical personnel, survivors of suicide, victims of violent crimes (sexual assault, domestic violence, workplace violence) and their families, and those who struggle with complicated grief.
Hypnotherapy, meditation, and Reiki are also offered, in addition to Mindfulness-based therapy. Cognitive-Behavioral and Psychodynamic psychotherapies are practiced for some of the challenging issues from the past and present, including personality disorders. To treat Acute Traumatic Stress and Post Traumatic Stress disorders, Prolonged Exposure therapy is utilized.
Integratively, the treatment approach will guide you toward understanding and resolution of the issues related to trauma, life transition and adjustment, depression, anxiety, divorce, grief, loss (human or pet), near death experiences, bullying, and burnout (compassion fatigue).
