I have a lot of experience working with children & teenagers, victims of violence, assault & human trafficking.
Sitting in a rocking chair, rocking back and forth, may feel relaxing but I believe that life without therapy is like sitting in that rocking chair, rocking back-and-forth but never actually making any progress or going anywhere. I feel that everyone can benefit from therapy at some point during a lifetime, especially now during this unprecedented time. This pandemic has changed the way we live and has brought new levels of fear, isolation and hardships to many. Navigating through these days are difficult, why do it alone when you can get through it with a therapist who will support you along the way?

Using Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), an empirically supported treatment, I can assist children and adults to overcome the effects of personal trauma related to abuse, violence, accidents, loss, divorce, disabilities, and exposure to traumatic life events.

My focus is on helping individuals, couples, children, and families cope and overcome hardships related to disabilities, interpersonal abuse and sexual trauma, loss and grief, separation and divorce, combat and military trauma, mental illness, and all of our daily life stressors. Life can be tough, but together, we can find positive ways to cope and thrive no matter the challenge.

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.
