Overview And Experience


failure is not an option

My practice has evolved with a strong focus on trauma, particularly in veterans and first responders, but also including childhood trauma. I  enjoy introducing innovative techniques while guiding the treatment with the consistent measurement of outcomes to ensure treatment progress. I am a passionate advocate for access to mental health services. My practice is focused on: police officers, firefighters, EMS professionals, 911/EMS dispatchers, active military and veterans.
