You've tried meeting with " trauma therapists," but it can be so hard to find the right person when you feel like they don't get your lifestyle. Moreso when you're a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, the kink community, or the ethical non-monogamy/poly community. Nobody should have to live with the pain of shame, sadness, worry, or mistrust that comes from having survived traumas. Everyone deserves to reach their full potential without the weight of awful experiences and trauma weighing them down. Imagine living without your triggers, anger, and panic attacks, and living with excitement, pleasure, and motivation again.

My Goal as a Trauma -informed therapist is twofold; to help you understand and make peace with the past you and to help make space and love for the present you.
You feel alone, Isolated, Scared. Terrified of the world and people around you. Addictive behaviors become the only way to make life tolerable. A good night's rest is complete fiction and feeling relaxed is for vacation and cruise commercials. If this is your life then you know that even getting out of bed let alone summoning the courage to see someone about your problems is one of the hardest things you will ever do. I know that the fact you are even open to seeking out help shows more strength and courage than most people could imagine. This fact means the world to me.

With over a decade of experience working with clients who have experienced family dysfunction, trauma , abuse, sudden loss, crime victimization, natural disasters, and legal challenges, I know that with motivation, commitment and a supportive and accepting therapeutic partnership, thriving, even after the most difficult life events is within reach.
Everyone deserves support through life's most difficult times. For some, it may have been an event that occurred years ago, and for others it is more recent. Seeking professional help and support is often times the first step to coping with a difficult life period and is a huge sign of courage and investment in oneself. I believe that healing and empowerment are wholly achievable and begin with a trusting and accepting therapist-client relationship in a supportive therapeutic environment.

I enjoy working with children and their families. I believe that children that experience poor impulse control and inattention (ADHD), anxiety, depression, grief and trauma do not necessarily have the skills to express their feelings in ways that adults can relate and therefore are sometimes misunderstood. I work with these children and their families to best identify ways to communicate those feelings in a safe, healthy environment through the use of play therapy and expressive therapies.

I am a certified clinical trauma professional with EMDR training.
Have you ever just wanted to sit down to off-load something that’s been eating away at you for too long? Recognizing the need for help and seeking professional therapy is a sign of strength and determination to live a productive and meaningful life. As a part of living our lives, we may encounter situations that are difficult to manage alone. Some seek support due to a situational crisis. Others seek treatment as a necessary aspect of managing a medical disorder, commonly known as a mental illness. Whether you are experiencing a life adjustment or more complex medical conditions, it is a well known fact that therapy helps.
