My expertise with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder also includes working with adults who have experienced more recent trauma (combat, domestic violence, assault, etc.
I believe psychotherapy is a mixture of psychoeducation (providing information to help people develop new coping and relationship skills), emotional processing (learning to identify and work through uncomfortable feelings), and corrective emotional experience (using the counseling relationship as a safe place to experiment with new interpersonal skills). I utilize a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (addressing how our thoughts and beliefs impact our emotional experience, self-image, and behavior); Family Systems Therapy (helping people gain insight into characteristic relationship patterns); and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (understanding how ways of coping developed earlier in life may not serve us well in the present).

Maybe your relationships have suffered because of your trauma, or maybe you feel like your story is too much to carry on your own. Whether it happened yesterday or years ago, trauma can change the way we think, feel, and relate to others. The good news is, you don't have to stay here any longer.

Maybe you’re unsure if what you’ve experienced would be classified as “trauma”. You tell yourself you haven’t had it that bad…and yet, you notice a sense of unease in your body whenever past moments creep into your mind. Or perhaps a complete separation from feeling at all when certain sensations occur in your body. After being told there isn’t an explanation for your chronic pain, you’ve been left feeling even more unsure of yourself. You want connection and a healthy relationship/ sex life but something you can’t quite name is holding you back. I am here to help as you make sense of your story and find true healing.

There are few joys greater than interpersonal freedom. Living unabashedly and authentically as you deserve and desire. This is our true heritage as humans. When we are barraged daily to find this freedom externally by our culture, (perhaps friends and family) and then osmotically transfer it inward we are left deeply lacking. It never works. The cost of freedom and to a higher level of awareness about ourselves is called work. W-O-R-K! The digging deep kind of work. Working to let go of anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, or whatever repeatedly binds us to a negative narrative from the past that no longer serves the present.

Do you feel like life has been just one distressing experience after another? I work with people who experienced abuse in their childhood or early life and continued to have stressful lives as they moved into adulthood. Often, they feel confused and afraid of their experiences and feel overwhelmed by day-to-day life. They may wonder if they are 'crazy' or broken, and may feel they have lost hope that anything will change. My clients often want to learn ways to cope with their stress more effectively, and feel less alone and confused. They may wish to have better relationships, fewer flashbacks, or less lost time.
