Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Trauma can significantly impact your life and keep you in a prison of fear, lack of motivation, mistrust, hyper-vigilance, hopelessness, sadness, and other suffering. As an experienced, trauma-informed psychotherapist who specializes in trauma, we will work together, using evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR, and other proven therapies to reduce or eliminate these symptoms. Your healing journey can begin today with safe, supportive, and private telehealth sessions. I work with women, men, couples, and families.
In addition to trauma, I have extensive experience working with suicidal ideation, self-harm, anxiety, depression, family conflict, grief, and much more. Starting with a thorough assessment, we will determine together what therapies are needed to resolve the past, enjoy the present, and thrive in the future.
You will be accepted, valued, and affirmed for who you are and where you are in your life. Rather than settling for short-term solutions, my approach involves identifying and addressing what is at the root of your struggles. Together, we will tap into your inner strengths to create new tools and strategies that will help you become more resilient.
