My treatment approach integrates CBT – cognitive-behavioral interventions (understanding how thoughts influence feelings and behavior) with mindfulness-based CBT (using journaling, guided meditation, grounding techniques) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). EMDR facilitates the accessing and processing of disturbing memories to bring these to an adaptive resolution. Clients strengths and developing healthy copings strategies are emphasized. My style is kind and generous.

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of adults who have survived childhood trauma. Trauma treatment is based on a relational framework which allows for a collaborative method of addressing clients needs; using a strength based perspective with an understanding that an individual’s symptoms are adaptations to life events.
Adjunctive support services such as massage, acupuncture, meditation, and yoga are encouraged and are offered at CMBT.
