I have 9 years experience working with children and families who have suffered the effects of trauma , substance abuse, domestic violence, unhealthy family dynamics, and overall poor coping skills.
As a Psychotherapist, I believe that everyone already has the tools they need to be their most productive and successful self. Sometimes people just need the support and encouragement from an outside source to reach their personal "happy place". Every patient has a right to Self-Determination and Self-Awareness. Psychotherapy can help develop insight, coping mechanisms, and social skills to help us build stronger relationships.

I employ a combination of methods my clients have found very helpful in overcoming these struggles: therapeutic hypnosis & mindfulness to ease overwhelming feelings & bring out hidden strengths; focus on past trauma , abuse, & neglect so that these experiences do not interfere with the present.
Although some struggle is an inevitable part of life, there is the danger of accepting continual pain & struggle as "the way life is". This way of thinking can keep a person trapped, unable to even imagine what "better" would look like. Therapy offers a way out. For some, the traumas suffered in the past make it difficult to find happiness. Others may find themselves behaving in ways that leave them feeling worse, or once again in the same hurtful relationships. Some may be consumed with regrets about past mistakes, or filled with fear of the future, missing opportunities to live well in the present.

Sometimes, the symptoms you present with are a result of trying to adapt to impossible situations.

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.
