I believe that trauma and the struggles we have experienced in the past and present assist in creating the depression, anxiety, panic and PTSD symptoms we are experiencing currently. We often create negative perceptions of ourselves and the world, due to the experiences we have had throughout our life. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand the challenges we have faced and use this new understanding to assist in resolving present challenges. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in trauma, PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, Panic Disorder and Depression. Utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and trauma therapy approaches of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Brainspotting techniques, I will assist you in unearthing long-standing behavior patterns and or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing the life you desire.
