Trauma can cause us to get stuck in our minds and disconnected from our bodies, which can negatively impact our relationships with ourselves and others. But a traumatic experience or difficult childhood doesn’t have to dictate the rest of your life - you can regain control of your life! I love working with motivated clients to explore the root cause of their issues in order to heal old wounds, create harmony in the mind, body and interpersonal relationships. I would be honored to teach you how a holistic approach can help you move towards a life of peace & healing.

The common saying "It’s about the journey, not the destination” certainly has its time and place. However, if there’s anything I’ve learned over more than a decade working with the havoc wreaked by trauma and relationships in crisis, it’s that the therapeutic journey ought to lead to a destination…and quick! When we spend years of our lives wrestling with the challenges of relationship distress, post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety and a whole lot of unhealthy coping mechanisms, in my humble opinion, this journey need not take until we’re old and gray or our most precious relationships have fallen apart.

My approach is collaborative, grounded in an embodied understanding of attachment theory and deeply trauma-informed.
“Change” is possible, but it is never straightforward especially when we find ourselves in the middle of it. As human beings, our entire lives are inherently developmental in nature. The complex process by which we may courageously begin to show up differently in our lives, and even in ourselves can be incredibly difficult to navigate at times. We are not meant to accomplish this on our own, and this is especially true after any sustained trauma. Everyone—regardless of age—is deserving of a space devoted to their growth and recovery. I am a firm believer there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the problem of being human!

People come to therapy for many reasons. Maybe your pain is new, or maybe it has been around for a long time. Maybe you’ve experienced a new trauma, or there are old traumas lingering. You might be noticing that your mind is full of anxiety, worries, and fears, with no hope to slow the thoughts down. Perhaps, you feel depressed, and as though you can't enjoy things the way that you want to. You may notice that you gravitate towards the bottle (or something else) at the end of the day. Or perhaps you find yourself unhappy in your relationship or in your family. In truth, you deserve to live a life where you are free from this pain.

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.
