Specializing in the treatment of Trauma, Anxiety and Depression

Person-Centered Care

Individualized treatment goals and approaches will be identified for each client based on their preferences and needs. The below information will outline some generalized treatment approaches that have been successful with many clients. 

Anxiety
Trauma

There is hope and healing from trauma. Skilled therapy can guide you through understanding what is happening in your brain and body that has overwhelmed your coping resources and negatively impacted your functioning. You can be safely guided through understanding and managing your affect, improving your coping skills, and safely processing your trauma if and when you are ready. Together, we can also work to enhance the current and future safety of yourself or your child. 

Depression
Anxiety

Anxiety can wreak havoc on people's lives. It can leave you feeling paralyzed, on edge, irritable, and unable to interact and respond to others the way that you would like to. There are many ways that therapy can help to reduce anxiety and help to provide some relief and allow room for joy again. Some ways to manage anxiety disorders include learning about anxiety and the mind/body connection, digging down to the underlying roots of the anxiety and processing through those areas, and building insight to promote positive growth.

My approach to treating anxiety seeks to treat the underlying root cause, while supporting the individual with learning coping strategies to reduce and manage anxiety to promote well-being. You are, in fact, not your anxiety. Your brain and body are sending your messages and communicating with you, and together we can seek to explore what they are saying and how we can respond. 

Relationships
Depression

Depression is isolating. It steals joy and interest in people and things that one cares a lot about. It's hard to deal with, and even harder for a lot of people to talk about. Seeking help from a skilled therapist for depression can be very helpful as you work together on identifying and working towards treatment goals. 

Connection is key, and the therapeutic relationship will be very important, as well as identifying or building a support system. Maintaining unconditional positive regard with encouragement to continue working on identified goals is key to my approach. We will work together to understand what is happening in your brain and body with your depression. We will work through current and past stressors that are contributing to your current symptoms, and develop coping strategies.
