Dr. Hayslett’s Edge: Evidenced based intervention and collaboration
Friday and Saturday
- Trauma/PTSD Therapies: CBT, DBT, CPT
- Group Work
“Therapy” means different things to many people. For me and for the clients I work with, therapy means change, healing, effective tools and a means to alleviate suffering. Therapy bridges the gap between distress and health, confusion and clarity. As a highly trained trauma specialist, I have heard it all and helped survivors of it all. From combat experiences to sexual traumas, I have sat with those trying to make sense of that which seems nonsensical. I know that coming to treatment in the midst of emotional pain, can take a lot of courage. I honor and respect the courage and internal resilience of everyone I see. I work from an evidence-based framework, built on a solid relationship of empowerment, humor and practicality. Through individual and/or group therapy we can gain an understanding of your needs, values and goals to improve relationships, gain self-understanding and create an effective path to overall psychological health and well-being.

I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University in 2006 followed by intensive trauma training at the Atlanta VA Health System, where I have served as staff psychologist for nearly a decade. I have used evidence based approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, and Cognitive Processing Therapy to treat trauma, stress, anxiety and depression.
