I have specific training in sex therapy, domestic violence, and sexual assault counseling.
As a Certified Sex Therapist, I work with people who come from all sorts of beliefs systems about sex. Some see sex as something just reserved for marriage while others have a more casual, open approach to their sexual relationships. No matter the values you have, it is possible for sex to become something that causes us pain. This pain might be physical-or it might be emotional, leading us to feel sad, anxious, or disconnected from our own body or relationships. Sometimes it is simply harder than it "should" be. The good news is, I have experience in helping people like you find healing in their relationships with sex.

My practice includes working with individuals, couples and families dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment injuries, sexual abuse and a variety of individual and relationship issues.
Reaching out for help is not a weakness or proof that something is broken. Instead, it takes courage and is rooted in hope. My passion is to tap into and foster the very hope and courage that brings people into therapy. From a family systems perspective, I work within the context of relationships such as couples, parent/child, siblings or other interpersonal relationships. I believe a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship is crucial to helping others find solutions and achieve their goals.

I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of people including adolescents and adults struggling with substance abuse issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, sexual abuse , codependency, trauma and loss.
Life can be tough and I believe everyone experiences difficulties at some point in their life. We can become overwhelmed, depressed, angry, anxious and confused about the circumstances in our lives. Sometimes things feel out of control and we want to escape the pain. For some, the tools they have are not working, in fact, their attempts to deal with the pain actually creates more pain. Counseling is a tool that can aid in change and healing. It can provide options to deal more effectively with the pain and solving the problems a person faces.

My areas of interest and experience are working with issues related to: Depression, anxiety, history of physical or sexual abuse , mood disorders, eating disorders, self-esteem, relationship conflict, family conflict, college/career transition, personality disorders, parenting concerns, post partum depression, drug or alcohol abuse, and grief.
At some point, we often find ourselves struggling to get past a problem, whether that problem is with an important relationship, or an inner emotional struggle. I enjoy working with others to understand how one came to be in such conflict and how one can move from old ways of coping to newer healthier ways. I believe working from a relational perspective is an important way to create an atmosphere of trust. I strive to help my patients better understand their thoughts, feelings, and actions. The more we know about ourselves the more freedom we have to make better choices in work, play, and relationships.

For this reason, I am passionate about helping those who are already ready to take control of their lives, using their unlimited power, and thus achieve what they want most. Each of us knows that we can, but sometimes fear and lack of support and help stagnate us. Let me help you. I know that you can! Cheer up and call me now!

Therapy can be a daunting task. It is my goal to help you address the issues you are seeking help for and give you real life techniques to use in your therapeutic process. I tend toward cognitive behavioral and solution focused therapies but recognize that everyone is unique and may require different approaches. I have significant experience working with emotionally/behaviorally disturbed children, abused children/adolescents and adult survivors of trauma. I tend to view therapy as a process. I believe it is important to meet people where they are so they can fully embrace the changes they seek to make.

I have observed that the imprints of these experiences have been continuing to cause pain, emotional unrest, and have been affecting how the person interacts with themselves, their loved ones, and the world. I earnestly believe that NOTHING is wrong with YOU! The problem has been with the way the mind has been processing information and through the use of Rapid Resolution Therapy we can make a significant difference in how you have been thinking, feeling, acting, and reacting.

Parenting is the most important job there is but where do we get training? Most of our training is OJT or from our parents but what if our training isn't "good enough?" Have you ever struggled with parenting and wished that you had a safe place to recharge, regroup, and express your frustrations? As a parent I can relate and as a Therapist I am here to help you. Being a kid is difficult. It's frustrating to communicate when your brain doesn't have the words to express what you want to say. Parents use words to communicate but children communicate through play.

The bravery it takes to begin therapy is often underestimated. So is the pain. That pain is often a symptom of a psychological wound that needs to be treated with care and attentiveness. Working with me feels similar to physical therapy: soothing at times and challenging at others, but ultimately, healing.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
