Rarely do we live life through a linear narrative. The highs and lows that we endure are all a part of the human experience. But for survivors of abuse, the low moments may be felt more often than not. Abuse-related trauma can have lasting effects on one’s mental wellbeing and hinder the ability to cope with stress, form positive relationships, and face challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, survivors may feel a sense of hopelessness when it comes to healing from the aftermath of trauma. It is Hiwa’s mission to foster wellbeing for survivors of sexual assault and interpersonal violence.

[Offering Secure Video Options] Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” These words, written by Pema Chödrön, capture the nature of the therapeutic relationship. Our work will look like joining together as we honor your story and compassionately notice the places in your heart that feel broken and are hurting. The choice to show up in this way is both hard and brave; at times, it will feel messy, scary, and confusing.

Or, are you struggling with unwelcome feelings and behaviors that impact your health, relationships, or career? Whatever obstacles you’re facing, therapy can be an invaluable and freeing experience.

Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".
