I have been a mental health practitioner for 20 years, with expertise in relationship dynamics, anxiety, depression, substance use, and trauma.
I have deep experience utilizing ACT, DBT, Trauma-Informed Care, and Mindfulness-Based treatments. When I am not seeing individuals and couples in my private practice, I train and supervise other therapists in these specialties.
I am trained in EMDR and can conduct individual EMDR therapy sessions in my office or via telehealth. In addition, I am Certified in Integrative Medicine and Nutrition for Trauma Treatment and I am trained as a yoga teacher.
When working with couples, I utilize my training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy to conduct a thorough assessment, provide comprehensive feedback, and provide a foundation for our treatment together. I am also a Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional (CSTIP) and can provide Integrated Sex and Couples Therapy.
I have worked in large healthcare settings in clinical, leadership and teaching positions, and I oversaw numerous residential treatment facilities for adolescents and young adults as the Founding Executive Director for Newport Healthcare in Northern California.
