My practice focuses on helping people manage stressors that emerge out of life cycle transitions.

I will strive to understand your context. I will actively listen to you as you recognize your obstacles. I will help you learn skills to manage stressors. I will provide a supportive environment as you seek new ways to make positive changes. And I will celebrate with you as you learn how to live into your new world.

My training in Western psychotherapy gives me a deep understanding of the brain processes behind depression, anxiety, shame, addiction, PTSD , and relationship problems.
**6-8 week waiting list for new clients** However you are feeling at this moment, you have deep, natural sources of resilience inside you. My job as a therapist is to help you tap into the resources of your mind, body, and spirit, so that you can take charge of your own healing and growth. Often, the feelings, thoughts, and behaviors causing us the most difficulty right now have their roots in old coping strategies that once helped us to survive and care for ourselves. If you are struggling or stuck now, it may be because you are ready to let go of these old patterns and find new ways of being.

Trauma Healing – It may be hard to connect with one’s body after a traumatic experience, I like to use Somatic Interventions & Mindfulness to help rebuild that connection.
As a Professional Counselor Associate, I will use my skills and voice to help empower my clients. I look forward to a long career in the mental health field where my community members, especially people of color, veterans, women, and individuals needing a cheerleader and advocate in their corner, can receive the care that they deserve. I want to understand the whole person and hope that everyone will soon be able to see themselves for who they are and not by what society or their diagnosis tells them. Seeking mental health treatment is a big step and I want to celebrate each person’s journey.

I work with adults struggling with trauma -related symptoms, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, grief, life transitions and those interested in making healthy lifestyle changes. I believe change is possible when people feel safe to explore their values, hopes, dreams, commitments, and purpose, as well as their disappointments and hurts. I aim to help clients "slow down," encouraging reflection and insight, and the development of healthy coping strategies to create sustainable change. My stance is curious and flexible reflecting my belief that my clients are the experts on their lives.

Therapy is a transformational space. Whether there are clear obstacles to your mental health or you are curious to know yourself more fully, my hope is for you to view yourself with self-compassion and see your life context with more self-awareness. I greatly value the therapeutic relationship as a safe place to explore yourself and better understand your relational style. Exploring how family and culture influence your sense of self and the world are also important tools of self-discovery.

My first goal in therapy is to build a trusted partnership through honest feedback, empathy, and adaptive support. I provide a safe space for clients to explore, understand, and work through difficult experiences. Together, we work to clarify goals and enact processes that build insight, reduce distress, and change unwanted patterns. Clinically, I approach well-being from an Ecological Model perspective; and often use Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Motivational therapies in my work with clients. However, how therapy looks varies with each person based on their unique needs, cultural contexts, and current circumstances.

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.
