As a nationally-certified,Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I have extensive experience working with clients dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, PTSD and/or trauma-related symptoms. Coupled with my background in coaching, I will engage you in two ways: 1) a look back at the conditions which contributed to your current distress and 2) a look forward to define how you want to shape your future. This involves creating a specific vision of your desired outcome and a plan to achieve it. I wholeheartedly believe in the change process and, while difficult, it can lead to a more peaceful, satisfying and productive future.

Imagine for a moment feeling more calm and at ease, connected to your body-feeling like you understand yourself and can meet your own needs. What if you didn't have to hide or feel small anymore? Instead of the constant chatter that you are not good enough or the never ending battle with your nerves, consider what it would feel like to experience a calm body and quiet mind all while feeling energized, trusting yourself, sleeping great, feeling good in your body, and feeling more connected in your relationships.

Take a moment to reflect on different areas of your life: family, relationships, work, social, etc., Life is a beautiful journey which can oftentimes prove to be difficult for one reason or another. Seeking support from a mental health professional can be intimidating and prove to be a challenge. One of the crucial components of the therapeutic work is the therapeutic relationship. Not all therapists may be a fit; every therapist has an individual style and treatment approach. However, when the therapeutic relationship is strong, it can allow for inner growth and healing.

There are times in life when our paths lead us off course and we find ourselves struggling with serious issues like negativity, depression, worry, anxiety, interpersonal relational issues, difficulty with co-workers or unfulfilling marriages. Some of us struggle with unresolved trauma from our past, leaving us feeling distant, disconnected and alone. No matter how difficult your current situation seems, I believe that it is always possible to get back on track and feel better. In my years specializing in domestic violence, eating disorders and trauma related therapy, I have helped individuals, couples and families overcome multiple obstacles.

Even the youngest demonstrate remarkable strengths with precise, attuned, attention to their levels of awareness, given new experiences to help transform distorted cognitive appraisals of themselves, others, relationships, the world. Working together, we cultivate more accurate appraisals of internal/external experience, shift into clearer, more realistic thinking, enhanced empathy, healthier, more effective coping styles. We co-create new, hopeful, cooperative stories to replace hopeless, repetitive, "traumatic reliving" within the safety of a predictable, nurturing, skillfully maintained therapeutic environment.
