To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their own experiences, strengths and by exploring both positive and traumatic experiences from their past. I take a teaching approach, often providing education about attachment and neuroscience, as clients express interest.

Trauma comes in many forms. Whether it's the death of a loved one, abuse and violence, DHS involvement, a bad break-up, chronic illness, criminal justice involvement, chemical dependency, or loss of parental rights; experiencing trauma can feel very isolating. You might find yourself feeling detached from others or having difficulty with developing authentic connections with people. Maybe you feel lost and uncertain about how to carry on with life. Or maybe you're finding yourself lashing out at others with little or no reason. Somedays it can feel like nobody understands your pain or how broken you feel.

Finding our path through life is not always simple or straightforward, we often discover that we have taken a route that delivers us to places we had no intention of ending up at. Sometimes these destinations are pleasant and we bask in life's outcome, while others leave us asking, just what have I gotten myself into? I've found that most destinations throughout our lives are merely rest-stops, and we still have a long ways to go before we're done. I practice mental health therapy to help children and families that have found themselves at points in their lives where they need assistance with their journey.
