I feel especially attuned to issues of grief, trauma, depression, and the spiritual seeking that often follows those experiences.
I often work with people who grapple with hard questions to which there is no one "right" answer. I offer a non-judegmental atmosphere in which each person can seek his or her own answers. Therapy is a co-creation. I work with each person to find what "speaks" to him / her. That may include talking, mindfulness practices, or creative arts therapies. Using these methods accesses parts of the brain that can't be reached through words alone, and puts people in the flow of their wisdom and creativity, from which solutions to problems can emerge.

I help individuals realize their potential, whether it is in a spiritual direction or in motivation to perform better in life. The underlying principles are the same. I work in a "positive psychology" format, which means that there is often more focus on one's existing strengths, instead of on some deficit or illness. I help people look at the workings of the mind, and to improve through specific exercises and homework. The ideal client is one who recognizes that they feel stuck and is willing to take the necessary actions to begin moving forward.

My approach is to work close with patients utilizing empirically vallidated techniques conveyed in a user friendly manner.

To heal trauma, clients need more than talk therapy alone.
When we have too much emotional pain, we can't truly live free. Our brains are wired to avoid pain at all costs. We will do anything in our power to prevent pain or run from pain when it is activated. The countless strategies we create to avoid pain include distraction, addiction, people-pleasing, self-criticism, perfectionism, & performance. All of our strategies work for awhile but not long-term. Living a life with the sole purpose of avoiding pain is not freedom. It's not the life most people want to live. What if the key to freedom was not in finding new ways to prevent or cope with the pain but to actually heal the pain?

Trauma and PTSD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
