I specialize in working with trauma , mood disorders, and addictive behaviors.
Sometimes life experiences leave us feeling overwhelmed or hopeless and we find that the ways we usually cope are not helping. Sometimes our personal journey involves difficult, seemingly impossible crises or losses. Sometimes we try to manage emotions with activities that help us feel better for a short time but then the cost starts to outweigh the benefits. I believe we all go through times like this when we are tired of struggling. The path towards recovering from these experiences seems more doable when we are able to find a renewed motivation and clear goals towards change.

Much of my training and experience involves working with women and adolescents who have experienced trauma (abuse/neglect, domestic violence, dating violence, etc.
My practice is primarily devoted to working with young women and trauma victims. However, I see others also. Therapy can help us express our feelings, learn new skills, and help us find effective solutions to issues we face. In a confidential environment, I strive to create an atmosphere that is safe, nurturing and supportive. My work with young women is focused on supporting them on their journey through adolescents into womanhood, which is a road well-traveled, but not always gracefully. I am well trained in helping young women experiencing difficulties in their school, family and/or social lives.

I'm a nationally recognized subject matter expert in sexuality, couples, trauma / PTSD and veterans.
Do you find yourself struggling with your emotions? Does it seem like you are overwhelmed by your feelings, or instead that you have to keep a tight lid on your emotions so as not to do damage to your relationships, career and family life? I work well with people who are struggling with feelings of being "stuck" in their lives and with their emotions, and who wonder if there's more to life in terms of vitality and aliveness. I'll aim to help you increase your emotional intelligence so that your emotions work for rather than against you.

As a mom, spouse, friend, and professional woman you are wearing many hats, and this can become overwhelming. At times you feel overwhelmed by life and after a long day of showing up for everyone else, there is nothing left for you. Everything appears okay from the outside looking in, but you can feel yourself cracking more and more each day. You may have fooled everyone around you, but you know the truth. You feel broken and wounded by past mistakes and trauma . You find yourself isolating from friends and family and turning down invites. That feeling of loneliness and sadness has just become too difficult to stuff down anymore.

Every time you tried to change, the intrusive negative thoughts and anxiety overwhelm you. it's so scary to think about sharing your secrets with a stranger. I understand how traumatic past experience sets a limit on individuals ability to deal with stress, where the drugs become the solution and how the two are connected. Whether you are struggling with addition, rejection or loss, abuse or trauma , I am here to help.
