I have worked with sexual abuse victims, trauma survivors, people experiencing anxiety and panic attacks.
Life is a roller coaster isn't it? You must be experiencing a down time to be here looking for a therapist. How do we hang on in the tough times when we feel tired and overwhelmed? I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, childhood sexual abuse , trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside others who are looking to deal with their own concerns. I use traditional behavior therapy models like CBT, DBT, solution-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I also use humor as one of my own coping mechanisms and incorporate it into my counseling strategy. Let's talk and see if I can help.

Everyone has experienced trauma: either "small-t trauma" such as grief/loss, verbal abuse/bullying, injuries/illnesses, or instability in the home or "large-T trauma" such as rape, assault , physical/ sexual abuse , or debilitating injury/illness. As a result of trauma, some individuals experience disruptive memories and/or emotional distress from current situations. I assist clients in gaining insight on their situations as well as the development of specific skills and behaviors that will help to reduce emotional distress. I believe that every client has the ability to heal from trauma.

Many of my clients come to me with anxiety disorders or closely related OCD or trauma disorders. They find their worlds shrinking as a result of their suffering and aren't sure how to halt the cycle. Likewise, I also see clients troubled by substance use, psychotic disorders, and everyday relationship issues like lack of connection, and they too are dealing with pain that gets in the way of what's important in their lives. No matter the problem, they often feel trapped or stuck and want to find a way through the barriers keeping them from meaning and purpose in their lives.
