About

Chronic stress can play a huge role in someone's life. When stress becomes chronic, it can severely impact one's ability to function. Telling our story benefits us in many ways. It connects us from the past to our present and future. Instinctively we are automatically drawn to stories. When we can see ourselves reflected in them, they can teach us lessons in life.
I utilize a trauma focused model through story work to navigate through issues in your life. In addition to this model, CBT, DBT, and ART therapy can implemented in this modality. I find this therapeutic approach can provide immediate emotional relief in one's life.
Research has shown psychotherapy can be a key link in healthier living. With understanding how our brain processes trauma, we can look at healthier tools to find healing in your life. One doesn't need to struggle alone. I look forward in hearing from you.
