My Approach to Helping
I have worked as a therapist in a variety of settings since 2002. I have experience working with a wide spectrum of problems including those related to trauma (PTSD), depression, anxiety, marital issues, anger management, addictions, and parenting. For seven years I worked in a residential treatment program where clients were between the ages of 13 and 17, with presenting problems that ranged from Asperger\'s Disorder to ADHD to Substance Use Disorders. After leaving residential treatment I joined with LifeSTAR of St George and began working with individuals and couples plagued by pornography and sexual compulsion addiction.
I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is an often-used treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress and other trauma-based disorders. I specialize in treating trauma along a broad spectrum from sexual abuse and assault, to relational trauma, to combat and first-responder service-related traumas.
Specialty Areas: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Anxiety Depression Grief and Loss Pornography and Sexual Addiction Recovery Other impulsive-compulsive addictive behaviors. I am happy to consult with you to determine whether I can be a good fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
