Having sexual trauma can turn your world upside down. It can be very hard to build relationships, and trusting others becomes that much harder. If there is sexual trauma as a child then the trust and innocence are lost early. If it is as an adult then the meaning and idea of what you knew trust to be are now shifted. Being in a relationship with sexual trauma history can be a rollercoaster ride filled with unknown twists and turns. I know that the needs and changes may be different for those individuals and their partners. My goal is to work together with my clients to relieve the pressure of the reprogrammed trauma brain.

Personal difficulties often entail masking your feelings in your daily life. It's important to me to create a space for you where you can just relax and be yourself. Struggles are a normal part of living; likewise the desire not to struggle alone. I support clients by helping them gain insight, build skills, and utilize their strengths in the interest of being resilient and "struggling well."

I believe that healing can occur within the context of a trusted relationship. I work with adults and families to help people better understand the things that are getting in the way of living a full, productive, and satisfying life. That could be a child’s struggle with emotional regulation, a parent’s difficulty setting limits or understanding their child’s behavior, an adult who struggles to develop and sustain intimate relationships, or a teenager who feels overwhelmed by all that is on their plate.

Relationships, no matter what kind make us who we are. We can not know who we are if we don’t know of those around us. Our everyday interactions with those around us, large or small, impact us as a result. There’s nothing more rewarding than sitting with clients, hearing how small changes towards healthy relationships has improved their lives. This includes nurturing the relationship with self- an important relationship in all our lives that we often ignore.

A third of my practice is with adolescents (anxiety, depression, academic underachievement, identity issues), another third with parents and couples/marriage (with or without children), and the other third with individual adults (anxiety, depression, issues of generativity in personal and/or professional lives).

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to distress. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of control in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, feeling productive, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

The most courageous and compassionate act one can perform is the request for help. People often believe if they pay attention to a problem that they will make it worse or that the pain associated with the problem will overwhelm them. Yet in my clinical experience and in my own life, the opposite is in fact true. The longer we ignore pain or a problem, the worse it gets. I believe it is in the confronting of our problems that we begin to heal and discover that we are much stronger than we thought.
