My Approach to Helping

I am a former US Army chaplain and ordained rabbi trained in Marriage and Family Therapy with additional training in trauma recovery, post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms (PTSD). My experience embodies an integrative approach and I can individualize therapy to meet client goals. I work with individuals, couples, military personnel, veterans, and their families, and the LGBTQIA community. I am knowledgeable of world religions and diverse cultural backgrounds.

I am trained in EMDR and I use it to aid in trauma recovery, addiction, and related issues. I am also trained n Traumatic Event Management, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Level 1 and 2, Solution Focused therapy and family systems.

I am currently accepting new clients in both the Pittsboro and Cary office. Check out our new website: https:www.carolinatraumatherapy.com
