Often, our past experiences leave us wounded. The story that we tell ourselves becomes permeated with negative thoughts, low self-worth, and shame. As these feelings manifest, we become anxious and depressed. We might experience isolation, loneliness, and a loss of connection to others and to ourselves. Therapy can help us discover perspectives that create a new narrative, one in which we have different ways to manage our emotions and lead a more enjoyable life.

I utilize a strength-based approach, designed to bring my client's strengths to the forefront while encouraging development and processing the more difficult experiences and feelings impacting them.

I see adults (individual & couples), adolescents, and children 12+. My ultimate goal is to not only help my clients overcome their presenting issues, but also to foster within them a deeper, more complete understanding of themselves, as well as any relevant diagnoses. It is true that therapy can at times feel difficult, but the benefits (hope, support, validation, relief from trauma, reflective guidance, coping skills, insight into sources of distress, strategies for strengthening relationships, psychoeducation, etc.) can be lifelong and, with the right psychotherapist-client fit, even the most challenging sessions feel therapeutic.

I specialize in working with couples or relationships, families, women, trauma, and grief. People often encounter relationship dynamics, losses, or wounds that spill over into their current experiences and leave them feeling unsettled, struggling with anxiousness, or finding it difficult to feel connected to the people they love. If you want to explore these past and present patterns, we can gently dig into the therapeutic process together. Our shared goal would be to learn how to honor yourself and lean into the world with curiosity and self-compassion.

My dissertation research was in the area of childhood sexual abuse.
"There are just some times in life when it can often help to talk." I have twenty-five years of experience in providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and older adolescents. Talking and working in a therapeutic relationship can be an opportunity to identify issues, thoughts and behaviors that may cause distress for someone in their life and relationships. I believe that a deepened and thoughtful understanding of the self offers the possibility of new choices and healthy choices that can enhance personal peace and contentment.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
