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 posttraumatic stress (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 syndrome to attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) to substance use issues. After leaving residential treatment I joined 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: PTSD, grief and loss, pornography and sexual addiction recovery, and 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.
