I help individuals with PTSD , anger, anxiety, and depression, as well as couples in relationships that are not so much broken, as stuck in negative patterns that rob the couple of closeness and connection.
I am a clinical psychologist working with adults, children, and couples. For over 6 years I have worked with combat veterans and their families. Prior to becoming a psychologist I was in the Marine Corps for 14 years. As therapist, my job is to meet you wherever you are and use my professional training and personal experience to help you move forward in the direction of your choosing to achieve your objectives. My goal is to give you the tools you need so that you don't need me. Therapy is about making you stronger, not making me feel smarter.

It's hard to think about starting therapy. And maybe it's never worked in the past. And often it can be more difficult when you've experienced what is considered a trauma , even if you don't think of your life that way. You just know you're not happy and haven't been in a long time. Sometimes therapy works when you try one more time. Maybe you just have to be ready.

EMDR is a method of healing from trauma more effectively than talk therapy.
Do you ever think... "I feel like I don't have any control over my emotions", or " I don't understand why I sometimes hurt the people I love", or "I feel so stressed out much of the time". Many of us want to feel better, but do not know how to use positive coping strategies to change our lives for the better. I have experience in helping with those difficult life challenges. I can help guide a person towards a more fulfilling and stable life by using a variety of techniques (CBT; DBT; or EMDR).

Or you may seek deeper understanding of your emotional life to resolve earlier trauma , or to enhance meaning in life, love and work.

In an engaged, supportive and interactive working relationship, you and I can identify and build upon strengths, goals and values, lend force and action to your search for meaning and belonging, and resolve emotional struggles.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with eighteen years of experience working with individuals (children, teens and adults) and couples struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addictions, trauma , and loss.
I believe that many difficulties are related to our unconscious thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and the unhealthy defenses that we erect, usually in childhood, to protect ourselves against hurt. Once helpful, but now outdated, these defenses prevent self-awareness and the constructive resolution of our problems. These blocks to awareness can contribute to symptoms such as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, interpersonal problems, addictive behaviors, etc. I can assist you in developing healthier coping skills, i.e, to identify your defenses, explore your underlying feelings, and rediscover your authentic self.

Today’s world is a complex interplay of demands from both internal and external sources. You don’t have to go it alone. I began as a Clinical Therapist 27 years ago helping people move through changes and challenges in their lives. During this time, I have also been a biology teacher at the secondary level. It is this combination of experiences, as a science educator, with a background in mental health, that has given me a unique perspective. It is this perspective that allows me to help people navigate through life’s journeys.

Do you ever wonder why you’re not feeling great emotionally & can’t pinpoint the root cause exactly? I work from an emotionally driven place. What that means is together we will explore your feelings & peel away the layers until we figure out what is happening inside to trigger these negative emotions. My role in your journey through healing and finding your inner peace is to gain an understanding of where we are coming from and sort through the chaos and turmoil we feel inside. From there we can work our way up & create new beginnings with new positive emotions and gain a renewed sense of being, a renewed sense of purpose.

I approach my work with clients from a non-judgmental, empathetic, caring and nurturing approach. Therapy should be driven by the clients needs and a safe place to bring issues and concerns, without fear of judgment or rejection. You, the client, should determine what we will discuss as well as the goals we work on together. I hope through our time spent together, you will have the opportunity to explore areas of concerns, as well as feel better and less stressed in your daily life.

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.
