"To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world"(Author unknown). When we are facing daily challenges in our lives, it can be difficult to see that we are loved, have a positive mindset, be grateful, feel good about ourselves, smile or have the motivation to do things which can negatively impact our daily functioning and relationships with others. My hope is that through therapy you will learn how to overcome these obstacles in order to become the best version of yourself and realize how important you are in this world.

My specialty is working with the unique type of trauma experienced by survivors of narcissistic abuse. This includes narcissistic abuse from partners, parents, other family members, in your place of employment, and anywhere else you may experience the unique abuse that only a narcissist inflicts. I get it, and I can help you recover from the damage these relationships cause. I also work with trauma in all of its forms including PTSD, Complex-PTSD, and Dissociative Disorders and I use EMDR and IFS (internal Family Systems ) to help my clients learn about themselves and heal.

It can be challenging and perhaps intimidating to ask for what you need when feelings of guilt and shame consume your thoughts, emotions, and influence your behaviors. This can result in feelings of frustration, unable to trust self and others, avoiding uncomfortable situations/emotions, and feel at a loss. Sometimes you may feel like the people and places you have counted on have wronged you and led you to believe that who you are is not what is expected of you and may feel like your voice has been stripped away. Which may result in you hiding your ability to express yourself and form/maintain relationships with others.

The uneasiness, sadness, and lack of emotional fullness we all experience can be difficult to identify and ease. David has studied therapy from a traditional as well as a “trauma healing” perspective, recognizing that emotional hurt and dis-ease can be carried within, causing emotional dysregulation and tension. David uses this somatic training perspective in working with clients.

You are seeking help because getting through everyday life is becoming exhausting. Or may be you have been feeling like this for a while. You might be irritable, anxious, at times overcome with sadness and self-doubt. Your relationships are suffering as a result. Your past experiences are haunting you and you don't know how to leave them behind. Trauma is a very lonely experience often filled with shame, anger, and sense of being out of control. Together we will create a therapeutic relationship where you can feel held, seen, and empowered in your healing journey. I'm here to share your unique pain and joy, not "therapize" you.

I am passionate about supporting women and teens facing the challenges of life in a way that helps them find sustained change. It is hard to live in this world and not question if our bodies, stories, and voices are “good enough.” We wonder if it is possible for us to be okay with who we are, and make different choices than we’ve made in the past. We often make decisions that are rooted in insecurity, leaving us trapped in anxiety. I value helping women learn to understand and respect their whole story on their own terms. Together we can define your own goals for change.

Without the help from someone who has lived through narcissistic abuse themselves, your journey toward recovery might feel like a lonely, difficult pursuit. Our goal is to help you heal, recover, and reclaim your life and learn to avoid toxic relationships forever. With a proven coaching program, we can walk you through the process with the support you need from coaches and therapists who have lived experiences in narcissistic relationships, themselves.

You just don't know what to do anymore. You're not even sure if therapy works, but you know you've got to do something different. You've tried to figure it out on your own and you feel stuck. Therapy can help if you're willing to put in the work, learn new skills and commit to using them. Yes, you can actually recover from anxiety, phobias and even traumatic experiences. And this is more than just learning to live with a psychological limp.

If you are feeling stuck, disconnected, or having trouble coping with anxiety or depression, you are not alone. You may be struggling to find balance in your life, or noticing that attachment and trauma from childhood is impacting you presently. Perhaps you recently lost a loved one, are navigating a new chapter of life that has you feeling anxious, or just feel like you are stuck in a rut and need someone to talk to. I work with adults and teens/adolescents on addressing anxiety and depression, unpacking past experiences, improving emotional regulation, building healthy boundaries with loved ones, healthy self-esteem, and more.

Are you looking to increase your healing and well-being? It is common for our instincts to lead us to stay away from uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we may feel depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or plain tired from issues that arise that we may not be able to solve on our own, and that is ok! Whether you have a short-term goal that can be reached in a few weeks or a long-term goal that can be reached in a few years, we will work together step by step to break down barriers and set you up for success on a daily basis.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Lost? Struggling with connecting with your emotions or intuition? I help empower clients who have struggled developing their “voice” and provide them with a safe place to express themselves & explore who they are. We work to rewrite a new narrative about themselves when stepping into their Highest Self and leaving old patterns behind. Together we will process the changes unfolding, which may entail grieving of old patterns that are no longer serving us. Through this, I provide loving support and collaboratively discuss behavioral techniques to invite into your life as part of your process of growth.
