Post-traumatic stress and acute trauma affect how we see ourselves and the world around us. We can become isolated, hopeless, and consumed by negative thoughts. Trauma therapy can help change how you respond to past events and help uncover the source of maladaptive thinking and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) addresses the mental health needs of children, adolescents, adults, and families suffering from the destructive effects of early trauma. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) treats mental health conditions that happen because of memories from traumatic events in your past.
I understand the vulnerability and uncertainty of letting someone in and have felt the fear of revisiting difficult memories. I promise to offer safety and support through your journey. Reach out now to get started.

I work with clients who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, or trauma related to past and current issues. During our initial sessions, we will review the issues at hand and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter.
