Most people have experienced some form of anxiety and depression throughout their lives. I help my patients understand what is at the root of these difficult emotions and I give them tools such as mindfulness and grounding to help themselves cope.
I have been trained in the following evidence based mindfulness practices MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and MSC (Mindful Self Compassion).
I help patients who have experienced traumatic events in their lives and blend various evidence-based interventions such as TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress), and mindfulness.
This trauma focused intervention is used with children, adolescents, and parents. I provide psycho-education to patients and parents about the upsetting event. Also, I help my patients share and process their trauma narrative while giving them and their families tools and healthy coping strategies.
