Licensed Professional Counselor
I believe that when people are suffering, they deserve someone that not only gunuinely cares but also has the knowledge and experience to really understand their struggle. I feel that its far better to focus on a few areas you are really passionate about and really develop deep understanding in those areas than to try and know a little about everything. I am experienced with a wide range of issues which impact daily living but specialize in those related to Trauma, Eating Disorders. Borderline Personality Disorder, and Substance Abuse.
My approach to therapy is based on the needs of the individual and the challenges they are facing. I primarily practice REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy) for general counseling issues. For Trauma and PTSD, I favor EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) but sometimes find NET (Narrative Exposure Therapy) to be helpful. When dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT ( Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and DBT Skills Training have been shown be very effective and they are also often a good fit for those struggling with Eating Disorders.
