I am a highly experienced therapist for adults and adolescents. I specialize in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, OCD, autism and eating disorders.

Please see my website at www.stillmeadowcounseling.com for more information about me and the treatment that I provide. I use a Client Centered Therapeutic approach which means that I always try to understand a client's issues through his or her perspective. I am a social worker who believes in doing a very thorough psycho-social-assessment. I beleive in the "whole" person concept which means that I see a person as a culmination of their innate traits such as personality, life experiences (especially if there is a history of trauma) and the current envoronment in which they live. I tailor my therapy to the client's specific needs. I use a highly collaborative appraoch in which the client is integrally involved in devising a treatment plan. I individualize my therapy to the client I do not use boilermaker language in my treatment plans, psychotherapy notes or Initial Intake Assessments. I listen attentively to the client's needs and help them devise a treatment plan which suits the client. As a social worker, I not only provide therapy, I also advoacte for my clients. If a client has special needs, I do my my best to connect them with community services. I believe in using all community services that are available. I maintain a vast network of connections in the community.
I have specialties in suicide prevention, crisis intervention, counseling for autistic clients and bereavement counseling. I have a lot of experience in marriage and couple's counseling, which is a very special skill set that is very different from indiviudal counseling. I was a member of a Crisis Intervention Team affiliated with law enforcement. I have dealt with highly volatile and potentially dangerous situations. I am trained in conflict resolution and mediation. I have a law enforcment background. One of my primary specialties is treating PTSD. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and am also Certified as Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
