I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialization in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I developed my specialty in treating emotional trauma working with PTSD field experts at the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. I offer gold-standard PTSD interventions endorsed by the National Center for PTSD and the American Psychological Association: Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). CPT presented on "This American Life" (aired 8/23/19): https://www.thisamericanlife.org/682/ten-sessions I value evidence based therapies that are demonstrated to improve mental health. Many of my patients are active duty, veteran and federally employed (civilian).
My work in the field of trauma is the foundation of my practice and I attribute this to my success in helping my patients cope with struggles ranging from daily stressors to major mood disorders. I also have a special interest in supporting people of color and other marginalized communities.
