People seek out therapy for a variety of reasons, but it’s not uncommon for therapy to be someone’s “last ditch effort” to make life better. Therapy isn't just for one type of person or just for individuals in a crisis; anyone can benefit from therapy. Some examples of things that may promote you to seek out treatment includes difficulty concentrating, high levels of anxiety, feeling shortness of breath, panic, fear, sleeping problems, relationship difficulties, sadness, or interference with your ability to do things or even enjoy life. These experiences are not uncommon, most people have them, but most of the time they try to make things better on their own. Sometimes, it takes more than just you to feel better. My approach to therapy is a combination between my specialized training and your expert knowledge of yourself. Below are examples of the areas and populations I have specialized experience treating:

  • Trauma & Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    • Military & Combat

    • Military Sexual Assault

    • Childhood and Adulthood Sexual Assault

    • Physical Assault & Domestic Violence

    • Work Accidents (including harassment)

    • Terrorism
