I know it takes courage to ask for help. You may feel both excited and scared about beginning therapy for your childhood trauma. For years, you have suffered from the effects of childhood abuse in your relationships and other parts of your daily life. You have locked away painful emotions, only to see them coming out in your intimate relationships. Your connections with your family may be strained due to lingering pain from your childhood abuse. You are ready to open the door to healing and a life beyond what you have known so far. You desire to heal from your childhood abuse so that the next generation doesn't continue the cycle.

I specialize in working with adult and adolescent survivors of sexual abuse. I also specialize in working from a faith-based perspective, for those who are seeking this. Together, we will collaborate to build a unique, healing atmosphere where you feel encouraged and empowered to look into the deepest places, and to face the pain you have held deep inside.

You are seeking to know yourself more deeply. You want to move on from old, painful emotions toward healing and wholeness. You are unsure of what therapy may uncover, and of what you may find as you go through the process. I will be by your side to gently guide you toward discovering your best self. Let's begin this journey together!
