I'm not able to take new clients at this time. My specialty is working with teen and adult clients in the handling of day-to-day problems. I treat victims of trauma, as well as individuals suffering from anxiety and panic disorder, phobias, depression, and other stress related issues. Terrible events or repeated daily stresses can affect anyone and everyone, making life more difficult. Experiencing or witnessing a frightening, dangerous, or violent event can overwhelm our body’s natural coping abilities. Even more common life events like job/school stress can cause trauma response as well.
