Specialty FAQ’s:

Q4: Can you tell me more about Just Breathe Counseling's experience in trauma and PTSD therapy?

A: In addition to traditional talk therapy, I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy), two evidence-based practices used to treat the symptoms of trauma to help clients navigate and heal from traumatic experiences. I have worked extensively with veterans and survivors of abuse to improve their lives and to increase their hope for the future.

Q5: How does Just Breathe Counseling approach addiction therapy?

A: I utilize both a Harm-Reduction approach (to gradually decrease substance use while building self-esteem and developing alternate methods to better deal with life’s challenges) and a 12-Step Recovery approach, providing additional support and coping skills to clients who are working towards a sober lifestyle with the help of a sponsor and who attend appropriate 12-Step meetings.

Q6: What types of relationship issues does Just Breathe Counseling address in couple therapy?

A: In couples therapy, I use CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and Attachment-Based principles and techniques to identify the challenges that may be interfering with mutual respect and intimacy. These may include infidelity, childhood or past relationship traumas, attachment styles, financial stress, communication difficulties, and family of origin issues. Once there is a mutual understanding of what is preventing each partner from feeling seen, heard, and understood, we work together to set boundaries and implement practices that nourish and strengthen the relationship.
