Autumn loves difficult cases; working with trauma is not for the faint of heart. Having a client suffering from nightmares, insomnia, envisioning and reliving the terrible moments be able to get rid of those symptoms and live a better live than ever before is her favorite thing. She works with teens and adults in the areas of: trauma, anxiety, grief, guilt and shame, and reframing thoughts to feel happier and more "normal" on a daily basis.
Having been taught eclectically, Autumn uses a combination of styles to do what is best for your case, not a cookie-cutter approach. She is trained in: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT says your thoughts influence your actions, and vice-versa), motivational interviewing (MI uses questions to uncover and get you closer to your goals), trauma techniques (TF-CBT, Rapid Resolution Therapy - a short-term therapy using storytelling to access the subconscious), and is a certified clinical hypnotherapist (CHt is great for utilizing the subconscious to do the heavy lifting of deeply held beliefs and difficult subjects like rape, combat, bad breakups, and bad childhoods.
Autumn has been working with clients since 1998. She has been a case manager, therapist, and clinical director of substance abuse treatment centers. She has worked with children, teenagers, and adults. She has worked with severe depression, delusional disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsion, addiction, anxiety, and trauma. She has been in private practice since 2010.
All sessions will be conducted by telebehavioral health (video), so you can see her from any state she is licensed in, where ever in the state you are, without having to commute. She loves video sessions because it allows her to help more people and you don't have to cancel if you have a cold or your car is in the shop.
