I am a therapist who specializes in trauma , grief, addiction, codependency, depression, anxiety, ADHD, and self-compassion. It takes such courage to reach out for help, and I want to make this experience as safe, non-judgmental and empowering for you as possible. If you feel stuck or lost in the same maladaptive, dysfunctional patterns, perhaps together we can foster a relationship for growth. Perhaps Cheryl Strayed said it best, “I’d finally come to understand what it had been: a yearning for a way out, when actually what I had wanted to find was a way in."

EMDR is highly effective at treating PTSD , and can also be applied to other issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, disordered eating, low self-esteem, and dysfunctional relationships.
Are you feeling frustrated with your situation and relationships? It feels like your stress and anxiety are impossible to manage right now. It's hard just to find the motivation to get out of the house. You landed here for a reason. Managing family drama, work stress, messed up relationships, and trauma can be overwhelming and exhausting. Maybe you're looking for someone to tell you that you're doing the very best you can. What you need right now is someone to be on your side guiding you toward the path you'd rather be on. Whatever you're dealing with, you've taken the first step toward change.

Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

**PLEASE CHECK BACK. I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND CANNOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. THANK YOU.**When an atmosphere of trust and collaboration is created, healing can begin. My clients have shared with me that I am amicable and non-judgmental, warm hearted with a sense of humor and play. Within this space, clients who are learning to live with problems like a change in life, addiction or trauma can explore their life experiences, learn to use their current strengths and add new skills to move towards their goal. It takes time and patience, honesty and courage, plus support to look at one's self and stick with new thoughts and behaviors.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, PhD, LCSW
I have special expertise in addiction and also work with anxiety, depression and trauma .
I have been a psychotherapist for 25 years. I see adults and adolescents. I do not see children, 11 and under. Psychotherapy works best when the process seeks change. The focus of change needs to be delineated through a collaborative relationship between therapist and client. As a Ph.D. I understand the importance of applying evidence based methods and staying updated in relation to the current state of knowledge. This underlies your effectiveness as a therapist. Fees are reasonable and customary. I am on most major insurance panels. My office is in a safe location. I am the sole occupant.

I frequently work with professional clients who have anxiety or who have experienced trauma , and/or grief. There is help, even with severe or multiple traumas resulting in anxiety and stress. The effects of trauma often lead to ineffective coping strategies, such as addictions and other unhelpful behaviors. Learn to identify your strengths, find better ways of coping, and make progress toward your personal goals. Loss of a loved one, a relationship, health, job, or other loss can make for difficult transitions. My experience includes 12 years in mental and behavioral health. My services are Telehealth Counseling or Teletherapy only.

There is a phrase that says the longest distance we will travel is the 18 inches from your head to your heart. Current research supports the use of body based methods. I am a Brene Brene Brown Daring Way Facilitator. I also use a combination of music therapy, psychodrama, advanced integrative therapy, and Brainspotting. Brainspotting can be used to process traumatic events, remove creative blocks in artists, and improve sports performance. Brainspotting is also very helpful in stopping unwanted behaviors such as smoking, over eating, phobias, and addiction.

I have experience with a broad range of clinical issues including depression, anxiety, addictions, disordered eating, self-esteem, intimate partner violence, and other trauma .
The everyday hardships we face along with the evolving pandemic has challenged and changed our lives in ways previously unimagined. Therapy can be a powerful tool to develop insight, learn valuable coping skills, and foster resiliency. I am passionate about empowering individuals who have felt unseen, misunderstood, marginalized, and voiceless. I find joy in helping people gain a greater sense of self-worth and confidence, find meaning and purpose, and courageously tell their story. My goal as a therapist is to help you live a transformed, empowered life and find the courage to be your authentic self.

I have experience working with clients from various backgrounds, presenting with multiple different mental health concerns. I have the most experience and training in working with survivors of trauma . Many of my clients have suffered unbearable loss, abuse, neglect, and traumatic experiences outside of their control. They need help in identifying and regaining control over their symptoms that stem from the trauma they have endured. They need a safe relationship in which they are able to reprocess the events and reactions to the hardest things they have experienced. They want to not feel trapped in their traumatic memory.

I have experience working with First Responders, trauma , grief, suicide, mandated clients, LGBTQ community, substance use, anxiety, depression, and life adjustments.
I want to thank you for considering to see me for counseling. Seeking professional help is not always an easy decision. I view counseling as a team process whereby the counselor and the client work together to develop a safe, trustworthy, nonjudgmental environment. This environment allows the client to freely explore life’s situation, confront any challenges and develop ways to better manage life.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
