Come Sit And Talk With Me
Life can present a lot of bumps that prevent you from being the fully functional self you have within you. I have been a student of the human condition from a very young age and specialize in using methods that efficiently help you access your best self.
TRAUMA, PTSI (what used to be called PTSD is now PTSI, Post Traumatic Stress Injury)
Are you having complications in your life due to stress, PTSI, developmental trauma or grief? My training in Brainspotting (Phase II practitioner), many years of experience in crisis and grief therapy, psycho-neurology and attachment work can help you gain your natural personality, inspiration and energy back as well as improve relationships with those around you.
Trauma resulting from long term childhood abuse, life threatening situations such as what first responders and veterans may experience and buried trauma you may not be conscious of but that steals your vitality in life are my specialties.
- Shame, hiding parts of yourself that you do not like for whatever reason
- Inner moral conflicts
- Triggers that happen in certain situations whether you know what they are about or not
- Depression, Addiction, Anxiety that often have underlying trauma
- Recurring dreams, Flashbacks, Avoiding situations
- Feeling like crying without knowing why
- Dissociation, Depersonalization, Derealization
Another passion of mine is assisting couples into building stronger, more satisfying bonds that give to each of you.
Avoidance, unable to discuss difficult feelings, high conflict arguing, infidelity and difficulty managing life adjustments and transitions as a couple are among the things I help you with in couples counseling.
I am trained in Stan Tatkin’s PACT therapy. I have found this approach to be the most effective approach for helping couples. (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy)
I offer therapy for children using Theraplay, as well.
My office is conveniently located off of HIghway 50 in Cameron Park, CA but for individuals not in my area I offer Telehealth (therapy over secure video) as long as you are in California!
I accept Magellan insurance (Kaiser out of network, EAP and Blue Shield)
I accept Anthem Blue Cross superbills (you pay me up front and they reimburse you). I can do superbills for other insurance, as well, after verification.
I also accept CalVCB (California Victim Compensation Benefit) also known as the Victim Witness Program. It offers no-cost crisis intervention and ongoing counseling for emotional, personal and financial problems resulting from being a victim of a crime (such as witnessing or experiencing DV or any other violent crime). If you already have a claim number, you can set up counseling with me. If you need to file a claim, please call CalVCB at (800) 777-9229.
