Approach to Psychotherapy
"I use an integrative approach to therapy, guided by psychodynamic theory and several evidence-based and trauma-informed treatments. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and my primary treatment approach is an eye movement therapy called Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). My clients have seen remarkable results in a short period of time for a wide range of concerns, and I know it can help you, too!
I aim to create a compassionate and collaborative space where, together, we can explore painful or traumatic experiences and resolve them, better understand unhealthy life patterns, and identify solutions to current problems. I believe that the insight you will gain through therapy is a catalyst for finally healing from trauma, restoring autonomy, achieving balance, and improving your overall well-being."
