While my speciality is in trauma therapy, I also have experience working with problems such as grief/loss, abuse, anxiety, depression, phase of life issues, stress, relationship problems, and attachment issues.
If you are feeling stuck and need help finding solutions, answers, and some direction in life, therapy can be a healing place to unlock your inner wisdom, communicate feelings more effectively, overcome struggles/obstacles, and become your own personal problem solver. A therapeutic relationship, tailored to meet your individual needs, can offer support and tools to identify problems and barriers that keep you stuck and help you find solutions for your personal goals.

One of my specialties includes helping people overcome trauma -related issues.
Therapy can seem different or intimidating at times, but it doesn’t have to be. My aim is to create a thoughtful connection and help reduce any apprehensions by maintaining a relaxed demeanor, displaying genuine interest, and continually striving for authenticity. The process of therapy can help individuals or couples become unstuck. We all experience patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Gaining insight into these patterns helps us discover where change is necessary. Enacting change is always up to the individual or couple, but my goal is to help you get there to take charge.

We all need support sometimes. Life can be difficult. We can quickly feel overwhelmed and get consumed with negative thinking. When we don't have the tools to cope, in a healthy way to tolerate stressors, we can fall into destructive patterns. My counseling style is caring, supportive & intentional. I want you to feel understood so that you are comfortable enough to explore your emotions, expore tough issues and help you to gain insight into your situation. For those who identify with the Christian faith, we can discuss Godly principles. Whatever your beliefs or values are, it impacts our experiences. I am glad you're here.

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.
