Hello :) Imagine being traumatized due to a doctor’s visit, a hospital visit, or because you went on a date, or to school? If you don’t need to imagine it, talk to us; we can help. You are safe here. If you are ADHD, Autistic, Gifted, or Empath/Clair, the interplay between who you are and the world around you can cause anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, sadness, guilt, or self-doubt. If you are in a relationship, any of the above can trigger issues, cause misunderstandings, and interfere with closeness. Therapy can help you with your trauma , symptoms, relationships, and clarify the dynamic role between you and your surroundings.

I have extensive experience working with people suffering from depression, anxiety and panic, PTSD ( Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), bipolar disorder, interpersonal problems, gender issues, occupational difficulties, and psychotic conditions.
When patients feel unable to move outside of their 'comfort zones' they begin to experience frustration and hopelessness. Understanding and altering these patterns promotes lasting change. My years of experience have made me comfortable with others and have given me a great deal of hope and passion for the process and benefits of psychotherapy.

My approach to trauma or difficult life events is one where we co-create feeling safe enough and learn coping skills through individual or couples therapy; to process either what happened and/or how you’re feeling about it.
Navigating through your day with worry or distress may feel like an uphill battle. You might often wonder, if you will ever overcome these feelings. If you will ever stop feeling so pressured, so overwhelmed, so exhausted. It might be difficult to participate in your relationships. You might feel stuck or have scary thoughts. All you want is for this pain to finally stop. Imagine if you can begin to quiet down that pain. Imagine feeling less stuck and having the space to deepen relationships. Could you see yourself challenging your thoughts and creating a new narrative?

Since you have come to this place I will assume that you are struggling with something very difficult for you and that you are searching for effective ways to ease or finally end the pain. Sometimes your suffering can be traced to emotional, physical or spiritual injury, trauma or loss that you experienced many years ago, or it may have been very recent. At this moment only you know how you are suffering, what it is doing to you and your loved ones and the price that you are paying. Dealing with it alone can be very challenging, frustrating and frightening. This does not have to continue. Support is available.

I address specific concerns such as anxiety, depression, loss and trauma , as well as more general struggles to generate meaning and vitality in work, relationships, and life experience.
I work with individuals and couples who are struggling with some aspect of daily living - relationships, family, job; or who face a crisis such as illness or loss. I work to help clients understand the emotions, beliefs, and behaviors that may contribute to their difficulties. Strategies that have been adaptive or protective at an earlier time may no longer be needed and may interfere with life satisfaction. I have a flexible approach designed to strengthen coping skills and to foster resilience. My work involves both careful listening and active collaboration, with a focus on each person's unique history.

We’ve been through a lot these past few years, maybe longer. You somehow are keeping it together, but it’s been a long time since you’ve felt you are thriving. Many of us are too anxious or distracted to experience life fully. Procrastination is interfering with doing the things you know would help. Perhaps resentment or dissatisfaction has taken over your relationships- Maybe your older child or adolescent is struggling, Or perhaps you are dealing with something more intense; gender questioning or transition; a history of trauma ; a significant loss. You've been thinking about finding support, now maybe you're ready.

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.
