My passion is working with Trauma (both acute and complex), PTSD, Sexual Abuse and Domestic Violence.
I am a Behavioral Health Psychologist and LPC, that works with adults, adolescents, and children that have experienced trauma. Sometimes, our traumatic experiences can leave a wound that interferes with our ability to connect with ourselves, others, and the world. Often, we can feel incredibly isolated and misunderstood in our pain. Working with trauma includes building safety with the person, providing warmth and stability in the environment, and consistency in their treatment. While you may feel like there is no hope, there are gentle and effective ways, that we can work together to find, that will support your healing.

I specialize in helping adults heal from childhood trauma such issues related to having been adopted, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical abuse, grief/loss, and emotional abandonment.
This is a huge step you have taken to begin your healing process! Childhood trauma disconnects us from the truth of who we are. We believe that somehow the hurt we experienced is our fault, we are not good enough, worthless, we don’t matter, or we should have tried harder, etc. Without healing, these beliefs follow us far into adulthood. We are left repeating dysfunctional family dynamics, coping in unhealthy and harmful ways, developing addictions, feeling depressed or anxious, and having difficulty in relationships. It all leads back to the most important relationship- the relationship we have with ourselves.

I serve children and families whom have encountered an array of traumatic experiences such as, domestic violence, a loss of a relationship, medical procedures, the foster system, an accident, sexual abuse, etc.
As the parent, you have an instinctual sense when something is negatively affecting your child. Daily routines are impacted. You’re being contacted by child care &/or school, leaving you struggling to determine what to do. Life has become unpredictable & unmanageable. You may notice changes within your child’s behavior such as, inconsolable crying, aggression, nightmares, regression, stomachaches, irritability, & difficulty concentrating. These behaviors can be overwhelming and frightening to witness and often leaves a parent feeling powerless. Yet, children are resilient and are capable of overcoming the unthinkable.

I believe it is imperative that we broaden our definition of "trauma." Trauma can be ANYTHING disruptive (in addition to assault, combat, death, etc.). An unhealthy relationship; a break-up; bullying; neglect; a stressful event or period of time are all traumatic. These disruptive experiences influence what we think about ourselves and our world; and they often guide our decisions and perspectives.
