Some people who experience trauma may struggle with memories and thoughts about the event. They may have nightmares or feel angry all the time. They may want to avoid thinking about the trauma or encountering things that remind them of it. While it may feel better momentarily, avoidance of the trauma can keep you stuck from recovering from PTSD. As a certified trauma therapist, I offer a treatment that helps heal PTSD in 12-15 sessions. I specialize in working with first responders & veterans and am extensively trained to work with the unique challenges they face, however, I work with all forms of trauma.

This practice is NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Please call if you are seeking help to make changes in your life. Many people have at least one area where they would like improvement. This might include: mental well-being, addiction, intimate/parent-child/friend/work relationships, school/work life, etc... Sometimes it’s easy to know what needs attention in our lives, and other times we find ourselves baffled by what is going on inside ourselves. My therapy practice is about supporting you in identifying the kind of life you want and finding the best way to achieve that life.

Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed, constantly anxious, or like you no longer want to get out of bed in the morning. Maybe you are miserable, apathetic or afraid all the time and you don't know how to regain balance. Maybe you've gone through a lot of changes recently, or you've lost a lot of close relationships. Maybe your closest relationship is causing you pain and stress, and you want to figure out how to better navigate it. Maybe you're struggling with an addiction and it's making it hard to go to school or work. Or maybe something really terrible happened in your life and you feel stuck.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS -- I echo these words from Dr. Brené Brown: "When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending." I enjoy working as a team with my clients to create new endings through understanding our narratives, pin-pointing sources blocking growth, and identifying steps towards achieving desired outcomes. I provide a relatable, empathic, creative, and professional environment. Because each person holds unique qualities and circumstances, I work to holistically understand clients and tailor the counseling experience around clients' specific needs and desires.

Welcome! I’m glad you made the decision to seek counseling and I look forward to helping you reach your therapeutic goals. Counseling is more than just talking or solving problems. It’s a process that requires commitment, transparency, and honesty- for the client and the therapist. Counseling can lead to increased self-awareness, a better understanding of behaviors, and peace regarding your past. It can help you discover your purpose, improve relationships, develop better coping skills, and find hope in stressful situations. Counseling can be challenging and consists of taking an in-depth look at yourself. However, it is worth it!

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Auburn Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Auburn.
