I practice an Integrative model including a holistic approach to treatment, paying attention to both mind and body. Additionally, I utilize and integrate a variety of therapy styles, to give you the best support, tailored to your needs. My approach is rooted in a passion for research into what truly works. I am certified Clinical Trauma Professional and have received training in:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for depression and anxiety
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Emotional Freedom Techniques and Tapping (EFT) for anxiety, stress management, PTSD etc.
- Relational Life Therapy (RLT) for Couples Counseling
- Trauma Informed Care
- Suicide Prevention
- Crises De-escalation
- Polyvagal Theory
- Person-Centered Approach
- Sex and Gender Issues in Couples Therapy
- Adverse Childhood Experience
- Motivational Interviewing
- Attachment Theory
- Post Induction Therapy (Pia Melody)
- Somatic Experiencing (Peter Lavine)
- Family Systems Constellations
Ultimately, my goal is to help you get back in charge of your life, give you the focus, confidence, calmness and self-sufficiency to progress and let your life flourish.
In my work with Couples I mainly use Relational Life Therapy for Couples (RLT) along with Trauma Informed Care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Family System Constellation. As an RLT therapist I work with clients to develop deep, permanent change in themselves and their relationship.
My work style is different from a typical couple’s therapist. First of all, I often take sides when there is power imbalance, as I do not believe that all problems are an even fifty-fifty split. Second of all, I use appropriate self-disclosure, I am honest, I am direct and I am real. Thirdly, and most importantly, I often do individual work in the presence of the partner. My goal is to help you move from trauma to healing, from disconnection to connection.
