My treatment methods


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a mental health treatment technique that involves a therapist utilizing standard procedures designed to stimulate bilateral brain activity to help you process traumatic memories and other distressing memories.

Trauma-Focused CBT

Trauma focused CBT involves three phases in order to assist an individual in healing from traumatic events. The first phase includes stabilization, the second phase assists in processing the trauma through narration, and the third phase allows for integration and consolidation into a more positive mindset.

Collaborative Management and Assessment of Suicidality (CAMS)

CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) This method is an interactive process in which the therapist and the individual work closely to develop a treatment plan to reduce their depressive symptoms. It is an empathetic and nonjudgemental approach to target and reduce suicidality and increase hope and reasons for living.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

IFS is a method that identifies and addresses the multiple sub-personalities contained in each individual. This method focuses on healing and restoring mental balance to the individual.
