About

*Couples & Trauma Specialist* You may feel like you are having the same argument with your partner. Daily stress piles up and you grow further apart from one another, feeling tension and disconnect. You feel alone in your relationship. You feel frustrated, angry and hopeless, asking yourself what went wrong. You are tired of arguments and long for the love and emotional connection you felt at the beginning of your relationship. Most couples get stuck in a negative cycle and the cycle is the problem. Together we will untangle this stuck pattern and find the emotional connection, love, and peace that you want in your relationship.
You may have some trauma you cannot stop thinking about. You experience flashbacks, nightmares and difficulties sleeping. You experience anxiety, fear & anger. You may have been told you suffer from PTSD. It takes courage to reach out for help and you are doing it now. There are special ways I can help you heal from these traumatic experiences.
I'm a registered social worker providing evidence-based therapy for individuals, couples and families. I work with children, teens and adults of all ages. Whether you struggle because of trauma experiences or you struggle in your relationships, my priority is to help you feel comfortable and safe to share your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
