I'm a licensed psychotherapist of over a decade in Washington state, special-izing in social and intimate relationships related to:
~ Anxiety Disorders including Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
~ Pervasive Development Disorders including Autism, Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Asperger's Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults and children.
~ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma therapy for combat veterans, military sexual trauma, sexual assault, domestic violence, and abuse survivors.
~ Sexual Disorders
I am trained in Marriage and Family Systems Theory so approach my work with an eye towards how it affects the family unit as a whole, whether treating a couple, a couple who are parents of a child with special needs, or a multi-generational family, including seniors. With individual clients, I also address their social and intimate relationships.
My treatment modalities are individual based on my clients needs, however, treatment is generally within the framework of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Applied Behavioral Analysis, Expressive Arts Therapies, and, in certain circumstances, Brief Solutions-Focused Therapy.
