Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT)
TFCBT addresses the emotional and mental health needs of children, adolescents, adult survivors, and families who are struggling to overcome the destructive effects of early trauma. TFCBT is especially sensitive to the unique issues of youth with post-traumatic stress and mood disorders resulting from abuse, violence, or grief. When the client is a child, TFCBT often brings non-offending parents or other caregivers into treatment.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a short-term form of psychotherapy directed at current issues and based on the idea that how an individual thinks and feels affects the way he or she behaves. The goal of CBT therapy is to change clients' thought patterns, which in turn changes their responses to difficult situations.
CBT is appropriate for children, adolescents, and adults and for individuals, families, and couples. It has been found to be effective in the treatment of depression, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, general stress, anger issues, panic disorders, agoraphobia, social phobia, eating disorders, marital difficulties, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and childhood anxiety and depressive disorders.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) provides clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. DBT skills can help people who wish to improve their ability to regulate emotions, tolerate distress and negative emotion, be mindful and present in the given moment, and communicate and interact effectively with others.
DBT treats borderline personality disorder, depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse.

Trauma-Grief Component Therapy (TGCT-A)
TGCT-A directly provides services to children/adolescents and addresses: Post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, maladaptive grief, and interruptions in developmental progression related to trauma or loss.
Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. I encourage and support the client to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery. Person-centered therapy is ideal for anyone who wants more self-confidence, a stronger sense of identity, the ability to build healthy interpersonal relationships, and to trust his or her own decisions.
I also promote self-care because I have experienced and witnessed the benefits of doing something you enjoy. I love Zumba and changing my hair color and nail polish. What do you enjoy?
