Title: Psychotherapist Specializing in PTSD, Complex Trauma, Military Veterans, Anxiety, BPD, Relationship Issues, and Attachment Issues

Profile Summary: As a Licensed Clinical Social Work Associate (LCSWA) with a passion for helping individuals overcome trauma and achieve emotional well-being, I specialize in providing therapy for PTSD, complex trauma, military veterans, anxiety, borderline personality disorder (BPD), relationship issues, and attachment issues. With a compassionate and client-centered approach, I am dedicated to supporting my clients on their journey towards healing and empowerment.

About Me: With a background in clinical social work and specialized training in trauma-informed therapy, I bring a unique blend of expertise and empathy to my practice. My therapeutic approach is grounded in evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), tailored to meet the individual needs of each client.

Specializations:

  • PTSD and Complex Trauma: I work with individuals who have experienced traumatic events, helping them process their emotions, reduce distressing symptoms, and regain a sense of safety and control in their lives.
  • Military Veterans: I have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by military veterans and provide specialized support to help them navigate issues such as post-deployment adjustment, combat-related trauma, and reintegration into civilian life.
  • Anxiety: I offer effective strategies for managing anxiety symptoms, including relaxation techniques, mindfulness practices, and cognitive restructuring exercises.
  • BPD: I assist individuals with borderline personality disorder in developing skills for emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance to improve their overall quality of life.
  • Relationship Issues: I work with couples and individuals struggling with relationship difficulties, helping them enhance communication, resolve conflicts, and build healthier connections.
  • Attachment Issues: I help clients explore and understand their attachment patterns, address attachment-related challenges, and develop secure and fulfilling relationships.

Approach to Therapy: In therapy, I provide a safe and supportive space where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences without judgment. I believe in the importance of building a strong therapeutic alliance based on trust, empathy, and collaboration. By empowering clients to tap into their inner strengths and resilience, I help them navigate life’s challenges and cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness, self-compassion, and personal growth.
