In my 20 years of clinical, academic, and advocacy experience, I have worked with clients who present with a wide range of issues. I specialize in recovery from trauma (particularly childhood abuse/neglect, sexual assault and domestic violence), successful movement through life transitions (young adulthood, career, parenthood, mid-life and loss), and repair of interpersonal relationships (including a specialty in couples therapy). I have advanced training in both trauma treatment and couples therapy, which uniquely positions me to treat couples where one or both partners have a trauma history.

I specialized in treating trauma and during my military career, I treated individuals with combat trauma, sexual abuse , and childhood abuse.
When feelings of irritability, fear, worry, anger, sadness, isolation, and emotional ups and downs become overwhelming, it can interfere with your ability to engage at work, at home, and in your relationships. Sometimes, there are deeper issues underneath. Sometimes, there are even events in your past that are impacting your ability to move forward. But you can make it through. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and comfortable environment to work through these issues together to develop strength in the face of difficulty. Restoration, renewal, and resilience are possible.

Do you feel depressed, anxious or disconnected to others? Does hurt from your past haunt you or disrupt your day? Do feelings of shame or engaging in maladaptive ways of coping make life that much harder? Sometimes life events have overwhelmed our mind and body's capacity to cope and to feel stuck in how to move forward. This can be due to past trauma or relational harm, all while battling heavy emotions. Whatever it is that has led you to this point today where you are seeking support, you are one step closer to connecting to your worth as a human and the freedom that can come from releasing the pain of your past.

-- Accepting new clients -- Do you feel stuck, troubled by the past, or worried that healthy relationships are unrealistic? Do you often go through your days on autopilot? Sometimes we feel out of balance and out of options. It may be due to relationship challenges, trauma, concerns related to identity and culture, or battling with emotions that are heavy. All of these can leave us anxious, lonely, confused, or hopeless. Looking for support brings you one step closer to finding freedom. Our collaboration will not be about receiving a treatment, but rather supporting the whole you in a way that makes sense to you.
