You feel like you’ve lost control of your own life. You’re feeling stuck reliving the past and fearing the future. You tell yourself you should “just get over it,” wondering if you’re overreacting. As much as you try to “move on,” the past has a frustrating way of popping back up. You work HARD to reclaim control of your life, yet you’re getting tired of pretending everything is “fine.” Because on the inside, it feels like you’re on an emotional roller coaster, feeling overwhelmed, strangely numb, and everything in between. You’ve lost touch with your own innate worthiness and power. And you just want your life back.

Trauma and anxiety can deteriorate a person’s self-worth, relationships and passion for life. People often suffer in silence, grappling with a hidden wound that is pervasive and constant, but trying to present an outward sense of normalcy. It is my honor to work with survivors of complex trauma and PTSD (whether from a specific event or from longstanding subtle invalidation and abuse) and with those suffering from anxiety and OCD to provide a safe and comfortable space for healing. I can help you to develop balance and health, regain confidence and self-compassion, learn effective coping skills and live the life you want to live.

These days, many of my clients have been pushed over the edge by the pandemic, with things that have been managed for years- stress, anxiety/depression, trauma, use of alcohol or other substances yourself, or by family members- suddenly becoming a problem. I meet clients where they are, so if one thing has gotten out of balance, we can focus on that issue. If it is time to go deeper, we can do that as well. Therapy is about changes that will make a difference in your day-to-day life, giving you peace of mind, and the joys you desire. If this resonates with you, please contact me, and we will work together to achieve these outcomes.

Are you struggling with memories of a traumatic event, anxiety, low mood, irritability, hyper-alertness, sleeplessness, or bad dreams? After a trauma, some people have trouble re-engaging with their lives and their loved ones. When the world just doesn't seem to make sense any more, it can be hard to reach out. Recovering from trauma can be challenging, but there are therapeutic techniques that can help. Finding the right approach and the right therapist are essential to alleviating traumatic stress symptoms and to helping you reconnect with family, friends, work, and life.

Life is hard. Perhaps you feel stuck or unhappy without knowing why. Maybe you are reading this because you have been impacted by difficulties in your life causing you pain right now. Most of us can't escape the suffering inherent to life. Relationship problems, anxiety, depression, mindbody disorders, self-defeating patterns, attention/learning problems, trauma and abuse frequently motivate people to enter therapy. Your ability to accept help when needed is the hallmark of inner strength. Knowledge is power, and knowledge about yourself is at the core of how you relate to others, cope, and make decisions in your life

What type of 20816 mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in 20816?

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
