I have also have a special interest in women's issues, and trauma-related stress including abusive relationships, sexual assault, childhood abuse and emotional neglect, family discord and codependency.
If you are looking for a therapist, you may be feeling hurt, lost, or stuck and aren't quite sure what will help. When our most important connections are ruptured through stress, trauma, and broken relationships, life becomes overwhelming, unmanageable and isolated. Finding a therapist who will listen with intention and compassion can help you feel understood and more connected to yourself and your world. I use a relational-style focused on increasing your awareness and insight so that you feel empowered to move forward.

This is not magic -- it’s work. But hard work and a commitment by both of us to a trusting and open therapeutic relationship can produce what seems like magical outcomes.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Wheaton domestic abuse or domestic violence therapist, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counseling in Wheaton.
