Firefighters, First Respondents, Police Officers & Veterans

Many veterans, officers, medics and firefighters have unique symptoms, challenges, and somatic issues that are complex compared to the general civilian population. As a result, I specialize in many treatment modalities to address complex traumas: Helping my clients reduce flashbacks, rumination, increased arousal, hypervigilance, reactivity, avoidance, negative thoughts, mood and the fluctuation between feeling flooded and feeling numb, exhaustion, erratic sleep, ADHD, OCD tendencies, perfectionism, refusal to ask for help feeling it’s weak to seek support. These are the primary symptoms I see, hear and treat on a daily basis. Developing new approaches, strategies and habits from many disciplines/evidenced-based practices can reduce these symptoms and help clients gain a better outlook and quality of life again.

TeleHealth & Virtual Reality Therapy

Telephone Counseling or Telehealth Online refers to type of psychological service performed over the telephone/internet counseling which ranges from individual, couple or group psychotherapy with a professional therapist to psychological first aid, and crisis therapy. Virtual reality Immersion Therapy (VRIT) Exposure allows patients to receive therapy by a licensed professional therapist which navigates through digitally created environments with specially designed tasks often tailored to treat a specific issue such as anxiety/phobias, Crisis, ADHD, Relaxation/Mindfulness. It is widely used as an alternative form of exposure therapy, in which patients interact with harmless virtual representations of traumatic stimuli in order to reduce fear responses. It has proven to be especially effective at treating PTSD. The therapist uses biofeedback sensory assessment tools to monitor your heartrate, sweat glands, and amygdala activation by increasing and decreasing scenarios for optimal results.
