I further specialize in working with sexual abuse survivors, eating disorders, self-harm and suicidal ideation.
All of us need a space to be able to talk freely, safely, without judgement or fear of another person's reaction/response. We all have those people in our lives that provide us with a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, but what about those times when we don't feel comfortable sharing with any of those in our immediate lives? Who do we talk to when our significant other isn't hearing what we have to say? When it's something that we fear sharing with another individual so we keep it to ourselves to manifest and become anxious, depressed, angry, or self destructive thoughts? There is a space for you, to be your most vulnerable.

When we experience emotional pain, our attention can become very narrow and we tend to focus on all that is going wrong. This is more so when that emotional pain has its roots in trauma. It becomes even harder to widen our lens to access strength and recovery. As a trauma-focused therapist, I’ve devoted my career to helping others find their pathway to healing from childhood adversity, sexual abuse , physical and emotional abuse, and substance use issues. I use evidence-based practices to help manage anxiety, reduce stress, gain self-confidence, improve relationships, and cope with the ongoing difficulties of life.

I am particularly attuned to individuals from the LGBTQ community, persons who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse or domestic violence, and persons living with HIV/AIDS or other chronic or life-threatening diseases.
I am here to work with you regarding the things in life where you feel "stuck." You may be stuck for a variety of reasons, including past or current trauma, chronic illness, relationship or work-related stressors, or caring for children or your aging parents. You might be in a heterosexual marriage and realize that you are LGBTQ, and you are scared, wondering how to move forward in a way that is sensitive to your family, and is true to your identity. I have both personal and professional experience with this issue, and I am happy to help you navigate through it.

Sexual Abuse Therapists
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behavior includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.
