It can feel scary and frustrating to feel lost in your own experience after trauma. You might even wonder where you went wrong and why you are still so overwhelmed. If you've experienced trauma, you might be feeling upset, easily triggered, hyper-focused on safety, and having difficulty connecting to others. You might also actively avoid any reminders of your trauma. This is a normal response to trauma and I can help you begin to understand your trauma response and weave a new story for your life.

So many of us come to therapy because we are hurting. Whether this hurt manifests as relationship issues, addiction, anxiety, depression, or stress about world events, I love helping people discover their inner strengths by healing the parts inside that hurt. Wounds from the past, coupled with internal conflict and judgements about self and others stifle one's ability to grow and change. By compassionately healing these wounds and releasing judgments we quite naturally feel more whole, connected, and joyful! In this space we are free to create the life we want.

Many survivors of trauma feel isolated from their supportive relationships and community, feeling intense and persistent fear, anxiety, agitation, and at times disconnection. Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving. Trauma is a psychological injury, and is reparable and treatable. With a multimodal approach, I help clients restore a sense of safety in their environment and within themselves, deeply heal traumatic injuries, and reconnect within relationships and engage in meaningful lives.

Dissociative Disorders Therapists
Dissociative Disorders are conditions that involve the breakdown of memory. Dissociation is a mental process that produces a lack of connection in our thoughts, a separation of emotions, physical sensations, memories, actions or even our sense of identity. Most of us experience mild dissociation in our everyday lives. We call it daydreaming, getting lost in a movie or a book, or driving home on autopilot. These examples of dissociation are normal, and are a mild form of amnesia. Dissociation can become a disorder when it begins during a person's developmental years and becomes habitual and ingrained. If you're looking for help with dissociative disorders in Santa Monica or for a Santa Monica dissociative disorder therapist these professionals provide therapy for dissociative disorders. They include dissociative disorder therapists, dissociative disorder psychologists, dissociative disorder psychotherapists and dissociative disorder counselors. They can help with amnesia, memory problems, and loss of recall resulting from emotional trauma.
