"Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

"Trauma takes many forms; often in the guise of unprocessed grief and loss. Loss of employment, financial insecurity, divorce, separation, domestic violence and abuse; all must be mourned. We become stuck; often not understanding our own reactions to people, places and things. Our partners, children, colleagues and superiors can appear to feel unfairly entitled to what we have to offer. Our ability to tolerate distress is limited."

"Have you experienced events in your life that left you feeling scared, worried, and fearful about your safety and the future? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. As a trauma-focused practitioner, I have assisted children, teens, and adults in building resilience, finding hope, and improving their relationships with others. Many of my clients are victims and survivors of childhood trauma which can leave a person feeling detached and without the ability to set limits and boundaries in relationships. It is difficult for some to believe that the symptoms of today can be the result of a residual traumatic experience. However, it is my experience, that the implicit and explicit messages of our past have had a profound effect on our current thought processes and only until that is realized, can we evoke change. "

How I work depends upon the circumstances bringing you to a psychotherapist as different problems and situations need different approaches. Every therapy is unique even if there are preferred methods and practices for treating anxiety, depression, and others. Each treatment is foremost a relationship.
