Addy has vast experience in both the outdoor industry and mental health field. She believes all people have the internal strength to make lasting changes and provides an encouraging and trustworthy perspective to life’s challenges.

I build rapport easily with families and students. I like to get to know people on a deeper level, and I think they appreciate my honest, caring, and encouraging methods. I deliver hard truths with intentional timing.  

The modalities I use include motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy.  I am trained in Brainspotting and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which are trauma-specific modalities with fascinating results. 

I’ve been a therapist since 2006. I’ve worked in inpatient, residential, crisis in home, outpatient, community mental health, wilderness therapy, and private practice. I’ve worked with a lot of different populations, including young adults, college students, adults, children, teenagers, families, and couples. I really enjoy the family component and working with teenagers.  

Our bodies and minds physically and emotionally remember trauma and put it in the forefront of our brains. People with trauma are living in a heightened state, which is why they react to certain locations, activities, smells, and other triggers. Brainspotting uses spots in a person’s visual field to address unprocessed trauma. It’s non-directive, so people don’t have to relive the trauma. It doesn’t make you forget what happened but allows your body, mind, and emotions to process in a non-triggering way so you can move forward.  Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which uses bi-lateral stimulation and positive reinforcements to resolve traumatic incidents and symptomology.   ART is similar to EMDR with faster results.
