As a former victim advocate with Colorado Springs Police Department, I have a deep passion for helping victims of crime regain their power and find their center. It is through my work with law enforcement, members of the military and victims of crime that I have gained a deep understanding into the dynamics of trauma, vicarious trauma, secondary trauma, and repercussions of untreated PTSD. It has also been my experience that the vast majority of addictions stem from untreated and unaddressed adverse life experiences that are inherently trauma related.
As a therapist, I view each client as a whole person and strongly emphasize positive support and empathetic understanding within a nonjudgmental and safe environment. I believe that although our lives are influenced by past experiences, our present does not have to be defined by them.
By connecting thoughts with behaviors and how they influence each other, one has the ability to transform responses and reframe the narrative of their story. With the ultimate goal of helping clients recognize that they hold within them the resources to discover their own solutions through empowerment and self-discovery.
