My approach to therapy is Cognitive Behavioral in nature and I am certified in both Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. These treatments are gold standard treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Throughout my career I have also sought training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. I find these therapies incredibly helpful for individuals who do not respond well to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I am a Florida State University graduate earning a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Masters degrees in both Social Work and Public Administration. I worked 7 years with the returning Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan before leaving for private practice.
On a more personal note, I am a South Florida native and enjoy reading, hiking with my family, yoga on the beach and playing music. I truly enjoy my career and meeting clients of all ages and walks of life.
