Do you feel stuck, unable to move toward your goals or desires and you are not sure why? Are there moments when you hear a sound, a phrase or smell and your body instantly shuts down? When we experience significant trauma , abuse or dehumanizing messages in our lives even the most driven individual can struggle to "get over it." Are you looking for freedom to be who you truly are or discover your true self despite everyones expectations of you? Are you looking to better understand why you react to certain situations? Or why sometimes you feel like quitting even though you don't know why?

I work with teens, adults, and families facing anxiety/depression, self-harm/suicidality, relationship instability, trauma , and Borderline Personality Disorder.
I believe that we all seek love, acceptance, and belonging. When experiences lead us to internalize a shame message that we are not enough, we can develop ways of interacting with the world that, though helpful in the past, are no longer working (or may even be harmful). This can bring on issues related to anxiety, depression, shame and low-self-esteem, feeling out of control of your emotions, and conflicts in your relationships. As overwhelming as life can feel, I truly believe finding freedom and healing is possible and consider it a privilege to support you in this process.

I also enjoy working with individuals (tweens, young adults and women) struggling with hardships around trauma , self-image, shame, grief, life transitions and pregnancy/postpartum issues.
Take a deep breath. What do you notice? Maybe it's a heaviness on your shoulders from the worry that kept you up all night. Maybe it's tension on your neck knowing you're walking in the door to another fight with your significant other. Perhaps it's emptiness in your chest from the shame that has been there so long it has left you feeling numb. Although I am not sure exactly what brought you here, I wonder if you are seeking relief. Seeking change. Hoping for something, perhaps anything, different. Different in you, in your marriage, in your child or maybe your whole family. I am glad you're here.

Trauma is the experience of the past not letting go of you - no matter how many times you have let go of it.
Hello! It may have taken you a long time to get here and you may have already tried lots of things, from "thinking positive" to "bootstraps" to "letting it go" and though you've tried your best, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. That's why I'm here. We can always talk it out and if it becomes apparent that a deeper treatment is needed, we'll start to dig. I have Saturday hours. LGBTQIAK+ friendly and open to all faiths and non-faiths. Sorry, at this time I do not accept any insurance plans.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
