I draw skills from CBT, trauma -focused therapy, and trust-based relational intervention to validate, encourage, and challenge in ways appropriate to my client's needs and pacing.
I recognize the significant challenges and emotions children and young adults face in their daily lives. In sessions, we work on navigating stressors and changes experienced in their family, relationships, school, and self. I explore with my clients to find goals and supports that are most in line with their own priorities and perspectives. We work together on processing the impact of relationships and events, providing skills and validation to help manage their emotions and thoughts. My aim is to provide a reassuring space for clients to reflect on themselves and use their insights to adapt thoughts, behaviors, and communication.

My training and experience have helped me develop a passion for helping clients heal from trauma - to conquer the fear, rather than avoid it.
It is a privilege to be able to help people work through the challenges we all face. It's a privilege that I don't take lightly. For my clients, I am here to be more than just a listening ear. I want to ask the tough questions and help clients create meaningful, long lasting changes in their lives, to truly unlock their potential. I am seeking adult and adolescent clients who want a thorough and challenging therapy experience. Our relationships, our thinking, our behaviors (and how they all work together) are the focus of my work.

If you’re here, it might be because you feel off, not like yourself, maybe a little lost. Someone might be encouraging you to seek support, or maybe, no one knows how truly bad you feel. A major life change may be impacting you more than you thought, feelings of depression and loneliness are becoming unmanageable. Stress may be overwhelming and impacting many areas of your life. The journey into parenthood may have brought about feelings of doubt, memories of past trauma , depression, anxiety, grief, and longing.

Whether its dealing with depression, improving communication, conflict resolution, anxiety, or processing trauma to name a few, we'll work together to meet your goals in a safe and comfortable environment free of judgment.
Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples in a committed relationship. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

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.
