I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families through issues such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma , life transitions, and self-image.
Living life on this side of Heaven means enduring hardship and suffering. I believe that the therapeutic process is one that can bring great healing as we all walk through our own life's valleys. As a therapist, I utilize an integrative approach that combines my Christian beliefs with researched-based counseling practices. I strive to create a safe environment for clients that places a high emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and the client's own worth as an image-bearer of Christ.

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.

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.

Mood changes, life transitions, trauma , loss and self esteem issues are just a few of the elements we encounter in our quest to have a fulfilling life. Learning how to optimistically cope with or eliminate these feelings altogether is a daunting task but with the right effort and determination, the goal is attainable.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
