About

Have you experienced a traumatic life event? Do you feel lost, overwhelmed, or hopeless? Have you tried traditional talk therapies and not much has changed? By implementing a collaborative, active, direct, integrative, and holistic approach, we will help you to establish greater control over your life and gain the ability to deal with emotional stressors reflectively instead of reflexively. I specialize in treating acute, chronic, and complex trauma. I believe that trauma is an integrative experience that requires integrative healing. I also specialize in providing alternative approaches to the 12-step model of recovery.
You will learn how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, and regulate your emotions. We will work to resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities you may be experiencing to find the internal motivation to facilitate change, focusing on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings.
As someone who has overcome complex trauma and has a history of addiction, I can relate to my clients by having a clear and realistic understanding of the struggles one often faces during this journey and I acknowledge the need to understand your life experiences to provide effective care. Please visit my website to learn more about me and my approaches.
