Beginning therapy can often be intimidating. It requires, among many things, vulnerability and trust in the therapeutic relationship and process. Painful life experiences can make it difficult to trust that others will have your best interest at heart or not be judgmental. If you are considering entering therapy, I applaud you for taking this courageous first step. My clients have repeatedly told me how comfortable they felt after the first session. I will provide for you a safe and non-judgmental space as we work as a team to accomplish your goals and embrace the process of change.

Throughout life we face so many difficult challenges. In childhood, adolescence, and adult phases, we can encounter traumas or changes in our lives that can hinder how we interact with others and ourselves. Relationships can be complicated, particularly when we are experiencing these changes or traumas in our life. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have experience working with all ages and developmental stages, focusing on reducing the impact of trauma and increasing positive relationships with self and others.

Imagine a ghost who is haunting a person when they are most vulnerable to taking control of them. This is the way trauma shows up in our lives. It slowly reveals itself, and every encounter is scarier than the previous one. Furthermore, no one else can validate this experience because they cannot see the ghost at first, which leads the person to feel alone, isolated, and vulnerable. I can come alongside you as you overcome this ghost. You can overcome your trauma in therapy with a safe and supportive environment to take on whatever it is that is haunting you.

Sometimes life throws us curveballs and yes they hurt. But having someone to listen to the pain, frustration, and every other emotion that you are going through can be a starting point to healing. There are even things that are “in” our control but maybe we make some poor choices or forget that we are capable of making better ones and that you have more power than you think. I can offer that sacred, safe space, without judgment or blame and help you find hope and clarity.
