I enjoy supporting folks who are working to cultivate self-awareness, navigating the impacts of trauma and systemic oppression, and those trying to wrestle loose some meaning in life.
Therapy is most effective as a collaborative process in which your needs and desires for growth are prioritized. The foundation of my approach to therapy stems from the wholehearted belief that our bodyminds, those seemingly interminable knots of body and psyche, are orientated towards liberation. As much as we may desire freedom from those things that provoke suffering in our lives, we also desire the freedom to imagine new futures.

Willow Tree Counseling’s therapists are trained in sex addiction and betrayal partner trauma .
Sex addiction impacts the addict and their partner. Sex addicts may experience preoccupation with sexual thoughts, hide sexual behaviors or activity from others, have sought help for problematic sexual behaviors, feel controlled by their sexual desire, feel depressed after sexual behavior, or notice others have suffered due to their sexual behavior? Partners of sex addicts may experience shock, intense anger, fear, and/or pain about their partner’s sexual behaviors, experience unexpected drops in sexual interest, feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster, or notice that past trauma keeps coming back and impacting them.

I work with clients who want to resolve childhood trauma , quit smoking or other undesirable habits. Also clients who have anxiety, depression, phobias or were subjected to sexual molestation and PTSD , can be helped through hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy can help to heal and change the negative programs from childhood and adult trauma too. Freud, Adler, and Jung used hypnosis. All the great founders in the field of psychology used hypnosis because it had proven its effectiveness. Hypnotherapy is unique because by going to the core problem it can quickly help you heal emotional wounds and have a new, more positive life.

I have particular expertise in helping resolve traumatic experience, including childhood abuse, early complex trauma , and recent trauma .
It is possible, I believe, for life to be deeply satisfying, fulfilling and vital ~ whatever the beginning, and however difficult or confusing the present time might seem. For over 30 years in my practice, I have witnessed this again and again -- and have developed a deep respect for the stamina and resilience of the human spirit. I work to provide you with the kind of supportive context that can help you find your innate gifts, and make real the changes you envision. I focus on the ways awareness of difficulty or pain can be a key to hidden strength and renewal.

You will find unconditional acceptance of the most painful parts of your life experience, and form a much needed alliance in repairing hurt and trauma .
You have been experiencing emotionally out-of-balance, blocked, stuck, or "off," or when you look at your future, you can't really see a way forward that interests you. You may relate to the idea of "being in limbo." Or else, you have experienced a loss so great it has seized your mental and emotional life and you feel there is no "space" to continue to carry out your daily responsibilities. Or else you are aware of an addictive or compulsive process, and to surmount this issue feels nearly impossible, so much that you don't even want to admit it is there.

The theory underlying brainspotting is that the brain compartmentalizes unresolved trauma in the subcortical brain.
Brainspotting is a neuroexperiential modality developed to heal the residual disruptive effects of trauma and negative life experiences that impact present functioning. My orientation is person-centered and I strive to provide a nonjudgmental, supportive therapeutic relationship. In conjunction with talk therapy, brainspotting enables us to find, through the visual field, where issues are stored in the subcortical brain in order to facilitate rapid and profound healing in a manner that is not accessible through talk therapy alone.

When I work with the pain of depression, anxiety, fear, isolation or trauma , often my clients' inclinations are to resist it, to stuff it, to pretend it's not happening or to judge themselves for these seemingly intrusive feelings. What if these emotions are surfacing because your mind and body wisdom are giving you the signal, through these experiences that your attentiveness and compassion are being requested? I believe that emotions arise to move through and to assist us in growth and well-being. They contain important messages of wholeness. It is a privilege to witness your unique expression as an individual.

I use a trauma focused, internal family system approach, to assist individuals and families to rediscover the peace and regulation necessary for relationships to form and sustain.
Relationship is regulation dependent. Do you suffer from chronic dysregulation? Do you need support with healthy, connected relationship? I can help you find the peace that you long for. I can assist you in giving and receiving the love that gets pushed away, due to dysregulation and pain. I am adopted. I am an adoptive parent, as well as a step parent. I both live and work with intensive treatment special needs children and families. Childhood developmental complex trauma hits hard; relationships need regulated individuals to be safe and enjoyable. Learning to calm down, be mindful, and enjoy life takes practice and skill.
