This could be due to fragile self-esteem, loss of faith, body image, relational conflict, or social/systemic issues. I have advanced skills in treating trauma-related disorders due to single (e.g. sexual assault ) or complex trauma (e.g. childhood abuse, neglect), death, bereavement, or loss. I use attachment work and relational constructivist theories to help those who are yearning to be more connected with their hearts, bodies, and minds.

It can be exceptionally difficult to go through daily life, and I've found that to be true for most (if not all) people I know and love. There are so many difficult things that can pile up on one another, making it complicated to maintain relationships, wellness, work, and other things you might value. Sometimes it's hard to "ask for what you need" because sometimes we have no idea! I'm here to help even when that question feels hard to answer, and our work can start with exploring goals you have for yourself. The resiliency I see in clients is awe-inspiring and beautiful, and I offer several approaches to help them get there.

We all have times in our lives when we need someone compassionate and non-judgmental to talk with. Life is hard right now, and you know that it can be better. You might be feeling stuck, and you just can't seem to move forward. You’re facing more stress than you can handle. Perhaps trauma, grief, loss, chronic pain, or other challenges are weighing you down. Making the decision to begin therapy is a healthy step toward moving forward in your life and doing something for yourself. Together, we can work toward making the changes you want to create a life you love because you deserve nothing less.

Sometimes this world is not the easiest place to live as we do not have control over every circumstance. We do, however, have control over how we respond to life situations we encounter. As humans, controlling our behaviors, our thoughts, our feelings can be a struggle at times. Therapy is a safe place to process, to learn, to grow so that we can react more effectively to life circumstances and to gain more authority over our lives. Each person and situation is unique. Candice approaches each individual/couple/family from a non-judgmental perspective provided with empathy, challenge, and guidance.

UPDATE 2/1/2023: NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Hi there. As a therapist, my style is warm and hopeful. I use both evidenced based practices or a faith approach depending on your preference. My time in social work began almost 20 years ago. Over the years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have witnessed how “hurt people, hurt people”. My work is dedicated to helping individuals work through areas of their life where they may be hurting or are being hurt by someone else. My experiences as a therapist have allowed me to work with adolescents, adults, and the aging population in various professional settings.

No matter our age, race, socioeconomic group, educational level, sexuality, spiritual affiliation (or non-affiliation), or cultural backgrounds we all face the inevitable challenges of life, none of us are exempt from this. Most times we are able to navigate victoriously through these experiences, but sometimes our challenges can leave us so overwhelmed that we have difficulty understanding our situations and coping with our circumstances which makes it very difficult to find a way to overcome them. Ultimately we all want to "live our best life" and sometimes we may need to reach for a trusting hand to help us manifest it.

I would like to acknowledge and congratulate you on the courage required to take the steps necessary towards achieving your desired goals. The counseling process can be intimidating as it requires you to entrust your current behaviors, thoughts, feelings and concerns to a licensed professional in the hopes of relieving problematic symptoms. My goal is to assist you in this process by providing a warm and empathetic environment in which you are able to discuss, explore, and decide the direction you would like to take. My approach serves to teach you the skills and techniques to effectively identify current problems with confidence.

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.
