I help folks cope and heal from sexual and relationship trauma. Trauma can fracture who you are as a person. It can make you feel unlike yourself, distant from others, changed forever. This does not have to be permanent. Together, we can build resilience, access your strengths, and let your past stay in the past. Learning to understand your trauma, manage symptoms, change patterns, and increase self-esteem can help you cultivate the life and meaningful relationships that you want. Most of my clients have experienced rape, sexual assault, childhood abuse, systemic oppression, and/or violence from a partner.
My passion for helping people understand and heal from the impacts of trauma comes through in session. My goal is to create a safe space for us to work collaboratively. We will work at your pace, as you are comfortable, without judgment. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities to treat trauma, including EMDR.
Confronting what you've been through is not easy. Healing can be very scary, but you have been through worse. Reach out and we can talk about what healing might look like for you.

Depending on many factors, usually my clients and I work on managing symptoms that are impacting day-to-day life. Once that feels more manageable, I like to discuss the neurobiology of trauma to give a background about how our minds and bodies have been affected. If desired, we move into EMDR work. If not, we process the past and attempt to understand how it has influenced your life today.

We will discuss what you are hoping to work on and what approaches would be best to fit that! I adapt to my client's needs and wants, while also using clinical wisdom and best judgment. It is important to discuss somatic (body-based) and talk therapies when working to heal impacts of trauma.
