Trauma Focused CBT ~ TF-CBT

When we experience trauma, sometimes we begin to feel like our pain is who we are. It can be difficult to see past the pain and sometimes it can even be difficult to see the possibility for healing. However unthinkable what you have suffered is, I will help you discover that your pain is not who you are and does not define you. By building trust together over time and moving at a pace that is comfortable for you, we begin to create a safe place for you to begin to process your trauma so that it no longer rules your life.

Child and Adolescent Trauma

This approach has been proven particularly effective in the treatment of children and adolescents that have experienced trauma. TF-CBT incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive behavioral, family, and humanistic principles to help heal difficulties related to traumatic life events. Through this approach, I teach children and parents techniques to help process thoughts and feelings related to the traumatic event, enhance safety skills, increase family communication, and resolve distressing thoughts.

Trauma Treatment

My focus in treatment is to help you identify and uncover the patterns that keep you stuck and to promote change, self-awareness, and personal growth. My goal is to create a nonjudgmental and validating environment that fosters self-worth and empowerment. I believe in creating a safe and nurturing space in which to discuss life’s challenges and uncover what's holding you back. My approach is warm and collaborative and I am committed to guiding you to become the best version of yourself.

TF-CBT and DBT have empirical evidence to support their efficacy in helping people overcome trauma.

I have experience working with a variety of challenges including:
low self- esteem, anxiety, mood disorders, and problems with relationships and intimacy. I use a blend of many evidenced-based practices to guide you toward emotional health and wellbeing.

I look forward to helping you or someone you love and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
