Traumatic events are painful and often result in wounds that can't be seen. I believe that understanding trauma and how trauma has affected you is the first step in healing from trauma. You don’t have to do this alone. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults – those who have experienced trauma and those who may be struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression. In addition, I also work with families experiencing separation or divorce. My goal is to help families effectively communicate while you try to figure out the emotional, physical, and custodial stressors that often accompany a divorce.
I believe that therapy should be a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space, that offers the opportunity to process and make sense of emotions and experiences. My goal is to provide a serene and safe haven for healing in a healthy, yet fun therapeutic environment. Walking through the therapeutic experience together is the key to healing.
The process starts with that first call. It can be daunting, overwhelming, and even embarrassing to begin sharing with another the realities of what is going on. But it is essential to take that first step – and I am here to take that call when you’re ready.
