About

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... It's about learning how to dance in the rain. - Vivian Green........... Sometimes you just need someone to listen and validate your feelings. Sometimes you need someone who's been there done that. Sometimes you just need a place to go to help get you back on track. I'm that someone and I've many life experiences as well as extensive training to help you. Licensed as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with extensive training in childhood complex trauma. Let me help you learn to dance in the rain!
People who have experienced complex trauma are my focus; experiencing traumas over and over such as domestic abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, divorce, etc.
I use play therapy techniques, music therapy techniques, as well as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior techniques focusing on allowing the trauma story to be told in a safe environment. Building a therapeutic and trusting relationship with each client and give each client coping skills to help heal themselves with my guidance.
