"You're struggling with substance use, addiction, shame, and low self-esteem. Control, perfectionism and rigidity have become ways to manage life. If you're not achieving then you feel worthless. Nothing is good enough! You're harder on yourself than with strangers. You've felt depressed and anxious for as long as you can remember. It's felt difficult to connect with others. Relationships feel challenging. Anger is quick to come out but it's masking other feelings. It feels unbelievably difficult to connect with others, to make friends, and to relate. When people get too close your instinct is to push them away. "

" I believe we are born innately good, creative and self-actualizing. Through traumatic experience (especially relational and cultural) we can learn to doubt and discount our own truth and inner sensings. When we don’t feel safe inside it is hard to really land and step into our destiny and deepest empowered values. I specialize in helping survivors of trauma (particularly of sexual violence) learn to feel safe again.
