Announcement icon During this difficult time, we are ready & able to assist new & existing clients via telehealth platforms throughout the COVID19 pandemic.
Have you ever experienced an event that completely changed your view of the world? Do you feel afraid, alone and unsure of where to turn? Are you experiencing intrusive thoughts, when you least expect it or even nightmares? Trauma has lasting physical and emotional effects that can leave you tired, jumpy, anxious, feeling ashamed, exposed, insecure and wondering who you can trust. Do you find yourself wondering why you haven't found the love you want in your relationships? Do you believe no matter what you say or do for your significant other, it's never the "right thing" or "good enough"?
Together we can explore your experiences in order to help you feel safe and secure again. In my office, with or without your loved one, we can develop new styles of communication that can create the relationship you have always wanted.
I am a big believer in brief therapy tailored to your specific wants and needs. I look forward to meeting you and helping you have the experiences you have been craving!
