I offer Specialized Treatments for:

Trauma

I am certified in Prolonged Exposure, which is a type of trauma treatment that helps us learn how to live a more fulfilling life that might be impacted by reminders of painful events. I have also taken training workshops in other types of trauma treatment and integrate Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), which helps us understand and modify trauma related thinking patterns, and STAIR (Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation), which helps us to understand and learn skills around trauma, emotion regulation, and relationship patterns.

Addiction:
