As we learn to feel rather than avoid, we can also learn to respond differently to our emotions, reminders of trauma, and other challenging life circumstances.
Hello, and welcome! I am dedicated to partnering with you to create a life worth living in the midst of challenges and painful experiences. I provide a warm and nonjudgmental space to tap into your strengths, develop new insights and skills, understand and express your emotions, and truly love yourself. I believe we are designed to experience a range of emotions that provide information about our needs and values. We tend to feel stuck when we attempt to avoid our emotional experiences, leaving us depleted, hopeless, invalidated, and confused. I hope to meet you where you are as you heal and develop greater self-compassion.

Trauma is painful and so are the ripple effects. It can tilt you off your axis, dysregulate your nervous system and disconnect you from yourself. When unprocessed, it has a sly way of making unexpected guest appearances internally and in your relationships. Ironically, sometimes the same coping strategies that once protected you from your pain are contributing to your present hurt. My approach is to create a space to get curious about your inner world, to collaboratively identify the stuck points, process the hard stuff, access the good stuff, and build new skills so that your past does not have to be in the driver's seat.

Trauma work is probably the most personally rewarding aspect of Tim’s job.
Schedule through my website link in my bio today! Before his own private practice, Tim provided mental health and addiction counseling to individuals and groups. Most of his time was spent serving forensic clients, who were state-mandated to inpatient rehabilitation for a history of felony convictions and serious drug use. Many of them had dual diagnoses, meaning they had mental health issues coinciding with their substance use disorders (which is often the case). Tim relied heavily on various counseling theories including Existential Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative Therapy. He became trained in EMDR.

Other signs of trauma can be trickier to recognize. Maybe you feel like you always have to be perfect. Maybe you don't know how to let yourself be vulnerable around others. Trauma can make it hard to speak up for yourself, can convince you that you are unlovable, or drive you to serve others while ultimately neglecting yourself. It can even make you sick or feel pain. Healing from trauma IS possible. It would be my privilege to help you learn how.

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.
