Individual therapy...a space just for you.
Individual therapy is a place where you can focus on yourself and overcoming the obstacles that keep you from feeling at peace with your life. I offer an approach that is tailored specifically for you. My training has primary foundations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Psychodynamic Therapy. I believe that a strong client-therapist relationship is essential to creating a space where you can feel confident tackling thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that have held you back.
The academic in me is continually in pursuit of the most innovative approaches I can offer. I'm certified in EMDR, a powerful intervention for the treatment of trauma that facilitates the full reprocessing of upsetting experiences. I'm also certified in EvTFT (similar to the more well-known as "tapping technique“) a cutting-edge therapeutic approach that has widespread applications, including the treatment of anxiety, phobias, depression, trauma/PTSD, sports/performance issues, and addictive urges.
Above all, we will work together to find the path that helps you reach your goals. Every treatment is completely individualized and takes the whole person into account.
