The tension in your chest is there again. You can hardly catch your breath. So much to do! Your mind is racing and you feel like you are drowning. Even the smallest things are irritating. You just yelled at your son for spilling a drink, and now feel terrible about it. You missed another assignment at work because you’re so distracted. Confidence is at an all-time low. “I can’t do anything right,” you tell yourself. You know something needs to change, but you’re paralyzed by anxiety. Overthinking every choice until you can’t take any action. It’s gotten to the point where you just want to stay in bed, avoid everyone, and give up.

I am the author of the book Cycle Breaker: A Guide to Transcending Childhood Trauma. In my work with clients, I use what I have learned as a trauma therapist for 25 years to support people who want to get unstuck and create a life they love. Most people don’t realize they have suffered childhood trauma, but are confused why they are angry, anxious, depressed and have unfulfilling relationships. I help people connect the dots between their current struggles and their unprocessed wounds from the past. I don't just help people with symptoms, I help them get to the root cause of their suffering, so they can enjoy sustainable change.

An emotion lasts for ninety seconds. I have aided individuals and families with owning and claiming their narratives for over 10 years. Having to reverse or defend an opinion that others have placed on you impedes our daily functioning, work life, schooling, family dynamics, and social life. In my practice I want to give you motivation and tools to maximize your life. In order to navigate this process we will discuss how you can practice mindfulness to customize your healing journey. No one should be alone as they go through constructing their life’s narrative. I would like to help you begin your mental health journey.

I don’t have a couch, and I’m not going to ask you to talk about your feelings all session. You have a problem, and I want to help you find the solution, so you don’t need to come to therapy. In my experience, people tend to come to therapy due to something failing to grow or be safe. Unsafe emotions, unsafe behaviors, lack of communication, lack of connection, and understanding that these issues arise in all relationships rather we are talking about parent child or intimate partners. How we deal with conflict matters, because it dictates the relationship and boundaries with our kids, friends, family, and partners.

Motherhood is beautiful; but from pregnancy to parenting, it’s not easy. Maybe you're holding your baby, wondering why you don’t feel “happy” yet. You’re afraid of not being "good enough" and you feel overwhelmed as you try to survive without sleep. Your expectations around labor and birth did not go to plan and you feel a loss that others don’t understand. Maybe you're pregnant now; filled with hormones, fear, and anxiety about the transition ahead. You want to prepare but don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re struggling to get pregnant, questioning and measuring everything, angry and afraid of hearing the word "infertility".
