If you have experienced a trauma, traumatic loss or a history of multiple traumas, you like so many others may be carrying the burden of these experiences alone in silence for years trying desperately to forget what seems too overwhelming to face. If you are struggling in your relationship with an intimate partner, your children or family members you may be frustrated, confused, angry or hurt by unresolved conflicts. You don't have to suffer alone!
I am a seasoned clinician with 30 years of experience specializing in the treatment of interpersonal trauma resulting from childhood and intimate partner abuses as well as intimate relationship issues, family conflict and traumatic grief and loss. I also bring forward a breadth of life experiences to offer in addressing life transitions.
I offer a nurturing approach to help you feel at ease and comfortable in engaging with you in a journey toward healing and empowerment. I will listen carefully without judgement to your needs toward achieving your goals for treatment. You can heal from the wounds of trauma, conflict and loss to live more fully and at peace!
