"Life is often complex and confusing, and the pain of trauma is is intense. Worry for the future keeps us awake at night. The past intrudes in our present, drives our behavior in ways we cannot explain, and leaves us questioning our own motivation and even our sanity. Thoughts can become so loud in our heads that rest is not possible. If this is true for you, I want to be there to help you sort it all out. I want to listen and help you discover your voice and your path. You are stronger than you think and my goal is to help you find that strength."

If you feel like you're doing more surviving than thriving, I'm here to help. I work from a trauma model, which looks at the impact of events on the way we think, feel, and act in the present. Abuse, lack of nurture, or catastrophic events can significantly impact normal functioning. Life gets better, and I work hard everyday to move people toward hope and healing."

"Three years I began working with professional athletes and traumatic brain injuries. This opened a huge door for me to understanding that there are many undiagnosed brain injuries out there resulting not just from professional sports, but car accidents, bicycle accidents, falls, and a wide assortment of ways in which children, adolescents, and adults receive a blow to the head. Our brains are much more fragile than previously understood. Be aware of: chronic pain, chronic fatigue, constant headaches, brain fog, dizziness, loss of balance, poor memory, sensitivity to light/sound, poor sleep patterns, depression/anxiety. "

If you are ill equipped to handle these situations, you may experience anxiety, depression or a variety of other symptoms. If this is the case, an appropriate therapeutic goal would be developing skills to cope more effectively. If your life is less meaningful, productive and fulfilling than you would like it to be, an appropriate therapeutic goal would be making whatever change is necessary for you to have what you want out of life."

Although there are times in our lives when we feel great, there are also times in our lives when we feel hopeless, anxious, depressed, or even lost.
