About

I’m a trauma therapist committed to helping support individuals learn how to cope better and not let their past interfere wtih their daily lives. My work focuses on educating you on how trauma has affected you, not just emotionally but physically and mentally as well so you can gain better control over your symptoms in order to more effectively deal with how the trauma is currently impacting you. Additionally, I help you process those events so they no longer have a grasp on you, rather you feel like you're the one in control again. I believe in each person’s potential and ability to heal.
There’s hope - you CAN feel better. As your therapist I’ll serve as your guide; not just providing a listening, supportive ear - but more: I will teach you new skills and tools to help you cope and feel better. I’m trained in EMDR a specialized therapy treatment for people who have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives.
I don't think in terms of what's wrong with you, rather I consider what happened to you as I conceptualize our work together. Asking for help can be hard. I'm so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of reaching out. If you're ready to find healing and wholeness in your life, contact me today and let's get started!
