People seek psychological assessment services for a variety of reasons. Many of my clients have sought services because they experienced symptoms that were new and difficult to make sense of. Others have been veterans in their own treatment process but were struggling to make continued progress. In addition to painting a full picture of symptoms, a psychological evaluation highlights dimensions of personality, relational style, conflict management, and other traits that may not be readily observable on the surface.

We carry with us stories and patterns that have likely served us in the past, but may no longer serve us. This can exacerbate symptoms of anxiety, depression or other mental health symptoms. Exploring and recognizing, with gentleness, how these patterns have become detrimental, gives us the freedom to choose what themes we insert in our life, and what we no longer have space for. I am excited by the opportunity to explore with individuals and couples the way in which they can increase their intimacy, empowerment, and sense of individuality by exploring and challenging barriers and patterns that limit exploration.

A significant number of people will have an assault in their lifetime, so you are not alone. My doc dissertation was on sexual trauma, resilience (surviving), & posttraumatic growth (thriving). I am dedicated to all types of trauma and see that people can not only get better but they can choose the life they wish to live, often with help of a therapist and a desire to change.

Pain travels through families until someone is ready to feel it and face it. No matter how hard we try, sometimes we still end up in the same patterns in relationship. You might be feeling stuck. I can help to break those patterns by identifying the reason they are happening to why you are attracted to a certain type. As children, we have little to no real choice in anything and you may have "forgotten" or never considered that you are deserving of a choice, an opinion at least a consideration. I hope to provide a space where you feel considered and deserving of exploring your choices.

These experiences can leave a person feeling helpless and hopeless. There are ways to alleviate these intense feelings.
