She is trained in relational psychotherapy, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), other trauma-sensitive therapies, and domestic violence counseling. In addition, she thoughtfully uses material from therapies such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Narrative Therapy, as her clients have need.
