I specialize in clients with a history of childhood sexual abuse .
CLINICIAN ON SABBATICAL NOV 2022-UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Every day I have the privilege of working with the bravest folks on the planet & none of you know it when you first walk in the door. You often feel defeated, overwhelmed & ashamed that you aren't able to "get over" your sexual, physical or emotional trauma. It's also common for you to have a nagging, chronic sense that something is just not right, an unhappiness; feeling unloved or unlovable, disconnected from friends and family, having lost a sense of purpose or direction. Without knowing that these symptoms may be telling us that a past trauma--long ago

"There is no greater journey than the one you take to discover all the mysteries that lie inside you." - Michelle Sandlin The journey towards healing starts with one courageous step. As a counselor, my goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can take those steps towards hope and increased clarity. My approach to counseling includes the whole person. I use sensorimotor experiencing and mindfulness in learning how to regulate the body and emotions, while exploring how thought patterns can be helpful or hurtful.

Through counseling, I will provide a person-centered and cognitive behavioral perspective. This means I view counseling as a process by which I help to facilitate my client's exploration and identification of their needs to assist them in making changes in their cognition and behaviors, which will result in the attainment of improved life satisfaction and self-acceptance.

I have seen people transform their lives in the face of great adversity when they believe in themselves. That is why after 15 years in this field, I remain an eternal optimist. It is also why I believe everyone can benefit from counseling. I believe in building therapeutic relationships with the individuals I serve, because relationships are often one of the biggest challenges people face. For the past three years, I have worked at a dual domestic violence and sexual assault agency, where I became a Certified Victim Service Practitioner and a Certified Victims’ Advocate. While there, I learned how to help victims of crime.

My specialties include working with survivors of trauma, including childhood sexual abuse , sexual assault , and domestic violence.
Connecting with a therapist should feel safe and reparative at all stages of the process and I work toward this by creating a space to help hold the trauma and pain while we do the work together. Some of my clients have had therapists before, and some are brand new to therapy! My ideal client comes with a desire to release themselves from pain and move toward a better sense of self in the process. Most of my clients are working through previous trauma (childhood and adult), have experienced loss, and many often belong to a marginalized community.

Do you feel stuck; like things aren't improving? Or do you feel like you're walking on eggshells around your partner and often questioning if staying in the relationship is empowering or oppressing you? Perhaps, you find yourself shutting down, unable to recall parts of your life, past traumas and connect how they are currently manifesting for you? Maybe, you're stressed, exhausted, anxious, sleep deprived and have difficulties setting boundaries. I know how daunting it is to seek assistance. I am here to help you take courageous steps for healing and transformation.

I guess I'm considered a generalist although I'm trained in domestic violence, sexual assault , substance abuse and career counseling.
Who do you go to when life hurts? What do you do when problems arise? Where do you go when the stigma of traditional counseling is not an option? I am here to assist you with online and traditional counseling. I counsel individuals, couples, and families. I have been in private practice since September, 1999. I believe that each of us have the ability to heal our hurts through forgiveness and the mending our broken hearts. Some of the issues that I work with are substance abuse, depression, forgiveness, anger, relationship issues, sexual assault , domestic violence, PTSD and career choices.
