I have worked with issues such as anxiety, depression, marital conflict, divorce, parenting, substance abuse, PTSD, sexual addiction, anger management, physical / sexual abuse , and adolescent issues.
I recognize that making the decision to contact a therapist is difficult for some therefore, my goal is to make the process as comfortable as possible. I work in a relaxed, informal manner that is collaborative in nature. I often use humor in my therapy sessions and take every possible measure to ensure that my office is a safe place for clients to freely cry or express anger as they need. Finally, I work from an integrative perspective that draws from a variety of theoretical approaches as I tailor my approach to the needs and preferences of my clients.

Is life feeling heavy? Are you in a dark place? Life events can have a major impact on us as humans. Depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, identity struggles, and much more can be results of these events. Most importantly, we want to make sense of these things and why this is happening to us. What comes next is the need for a safe, warm, and nonjudgmental space to share these struggles with another human. This type of environment can help you discover many things about the dark that can bring light to your story. You just want to feel better.

Trauma, sadness, anxiety, concentration problems, grief, and challenging behaviors - like defiance and temper tantrums - are often difficult for both caregivers and children alike. They contribute to stress, feelings of isolation, and problems at school, home, and in the community. When left untreated, these issues can also lead to long-term physical and mental health challenges. My aim is to empower children, teens, and families to create the change they wish to see in their lives. By enhancing resiliency, not only do we work to address current problems, but develop the tools to better cope with future challenges.

You feel overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed out. There’s at least one area of your life where you experience thoughts like “I’m not good enough" or "I'm a failure." These thoughts might be in the background all the time or they might only pop up sometimes (spending time around certain people, going home to visit family, working another day in that job you hate, or when bad memories get stuck on a repeating loop). Whatever it is that triggers these thoughts, they make you feel awful.

I believe in the healing power of safe relationships. I believe this because I have experienced being healed through therapeutic relationships. So many of us face the daily pain of being wounded by others, losing people we love, divorce, hating ourselves, feeling ashamed, alone, confused, or numb. We go to great lengths to manage the pain or anxiety we experience and often make wrecks of our lives and those around us. It is my desire to come along side hurting people and foster lasting growth and change. If you can relate to this, Welcome!

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.
