I am a trauma-informed counselor, utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), parts work and somatic techniques to help you connect with yourself again, heal attachment wounds and traumas of the past.
Do you struggle to trust people and simultaneously long for connection? Are you haunted by past experiences, and seemingly incapable of letting it go? Have you been treated for depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood swings, sleep difficulties and relationship conflict only to find yourself stuck in the same endless patterns? Are you jumpy, tense, or easily triggered? Perhaps, you’re forgetful, clumsy and disconnected from your experiences. Regardless, you are not alone. When you are ready to process your trauma and reclaim your life, I’m here. You do not need to carry those burdens alone.

We all have a story to tell. In my 20+ years of counseling individuals and couples, I’ve had the honor of hearing many stories that exhibit the strength of individuals healing from grief, injustice, trauma and chronic illness. I’ve been inspired by the resiliency of the human spirit and the hopefulness that inevitably develops as the narrative of one’s life unfolds. It can be a painful process but one that yields great rewards as we gain understanding of what our story has to tell us about our past and helps us to plan for our future.

Whether trauma and co-occuring concerns has affected you or someone you love, the process of healing can feel overwhelming and even frightening. Regardless of what happened and where you find yourself now, I believe everyone is capable of growth. A safe, supportive, and authentic space is essential for clients to move past those negative thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that keep them stuck in anxiety, destructive behaviors, shame, and sadness. I've found that warm support, while also challenging people to look within, leads to healing and connection with the best version of themselves.

I love to work with people who have experienced trauma or are experiencing issues with depression, attachment/relationships, anxiety, grief/loss and chronic pain.
There are times in life when we feel stuck. Sometimes it's due to patterns of thinking/behavior that aren’t working for us anymore & other times its from events in our past that are affecting our present. But what we now know with neuroscience is that we can actually reshape how our past experiences impact our current lives. In counseling we can help you better understand your story & make sense of what is keeping you stuck. Sometimes healing looks like examining patterns that aren't working and other times its through trauma processing. By honoring your story you can experience new levels of emotion, self-compassion and connection.

Sometimes life can leave the best of us feeling helpless, unlovable, and lonely. While Western culture promotes emotional independence as a strength, attachment science is discovering the opposite: humans are wired to experience vulnerability in connection with one another.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
