Finding the right therapist is important.
Here is some more information about the services I offer, to help you determine whether I may be a good fit for you.
I offer individual therapy for adults, adolescents, and children. While it is often helpful to include other family members in treatment, especially with children and adolescents, I do not currently provide ongoing family or couples counseling services.
My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing from humanistic, experiential, and somatic models of therapy, and tailored to each client’s specific needs and goals. I am trained in Attachment-Focused EMDR and in Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), a mind-body approach that helps clients manage traumatic stress reactions.
I have experience working with a wide range of presenting concerns, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, PTSD, and relationship difficulties. I specialize in working with people who are survivors of interpersonal trauma, such as childhood abuse and neglect, domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse, and sexual assault.
I am also experienced in treating children for problems such as anxiety, angry outbursts, and difficulty adjusting to major life changes. I use play therapy to help children learn new coping skills, promote healthy expression of emotions, and strengthen parent-child relationships. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which helps children and their caregivers cope with trauma-related difficulties.
I believe that quality mental health care should be accessible to everyone. I reserve several spaces in my private practice for reduced fee therapy appointments. Please contact me to discuss the availability for sliding scale payment options. Learn more about your options for low cost counseling and sliding scale therapy in Claremont and the surrounding area.
