individual therapy

I work with all individuals through the lens of "what happened to them?" instead of "what's wrong with them?" Using this trauma-informed model and a firm belief that recovery IS possible, I aim to help my clients identify and process their trauma, reintegrate healthy beliefs about themselves and the world around them, regulate their nervous systems, cope with stress and triggers, and reduce addictive behaviors. You will get a direct yet loving approach from me that won't waste your time or money.

Modalities used:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • DBT

  • Adaptive Information Processing Model

  • Psychoeducation of the brain, nervous system, and the effects of trauma and/or substance use

  • Mind-body connection work

  • Motivational Interviewing

family therapy

My favorite way to explain the importance of family therapy (as opposed to just getting one family member help) is the goldfish analogy. 

In a tank you have many goldfish and one gets sick. You take the sick goldfish out of the tank, put it in fresh water, and give it the care it needs. You then realize the water in the original tank with all the other fish is dirty. Putting a newly healthy goldfish back in dirty water will not allow it to flourish. You must address the environment from which it came or the goldfish will get sick again.

Tough pill to swallow: we all bring our baggage to the table whether we like it or not. And this baggage affects the way the family system functions. Families learn how to function in dysfunction, chaos, and stress until it becomes habit. Do you ever notice how your arguments seem almost choreographed, like you can predict exactly what happens next? The family system has adapted to dysfunction and needs help getting out, and that's where family therapy comes in. Let's break down those well-worn paths and create new ones.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a gold-standard therapy in the treatment of trauma, phobias, and attachment disorders. EMDR works by activating both sides of the brain through bilateral stimulation (eye movements, buzzers, tapping, sounds, etc.) to help reintegrate traumatic memories into the brain in healthier, more adaptive ways. EMDR can reduce unwanted flashbacks, distress, panic, worthlessness/helplessness, dissociation (and more) resulting from traumatic events. 

If you have tried talk therapy and are still experiencing distressing symptoms, ask about EMDR today.

recovery support

You've just gotten out of treatment or maybe you are trying a few other services first while trying to get sober. Maybe you already have a fantastic therapist but need a little extra attention paid to your substance use. Either way, you may need some extra support to get and stay clean. 

This is where I come in.

I can help you create, edit, or stick to a relapse prevention plan, work with your family to ensure a healthy and safe environment, and provide extra accountability to stay on track for those first few difficult months of sobriety.

Let me know what your needs are today!

assessments + Placement consulting

Do you need more information before deciding what type of treatment is best for you or your loved one? Are you overwhelmed with all the different options and don't know where to begin?

I can help with that.

I provide comprehensive bio psychosocial assessments as well as full substance use histories to help determine the appropriate level of care for an individual (outpatient, IOP, PHP, residential). From these assessments formal recommendations will be made as well as specific placements / facilities if appropriate.
