I work with individuals and couples struggling with relational difficulties, sexual addictions, grief, infidelity, trauma , and more.
You feel lonely within your marriage while longing for intimacy. You have an inner critic constantly reminding you of how you do not deserve affection. There is difficulty in putting words to your pain, isolation, and fear. Paralyzed by feeling numb and hopeless, you are ready to take a step forward into something new.

You are doing a brave thing. Anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can play a role in keeping us from seeking help outside of our known comfort zone. But there is help available, and hope for a better life. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, and trauma and PTSD symptoms. We may cope in ways that work in the moment, but come back in the form of panic attacks, isolation, fatigue, lack of focus, appetite changes, difficulty staying motivated, and feeling constantly on edge or numb. If anxiety is hindering your quality of life, or your depression is too heavy to carry alone, welcome. This is a safe place to unpack these.

I have a passion for working with couples, individuals, and teenagers/young adults (14 & up) with special interests pertaining to trauma , infidelity, sexual issues, spirituality, and life transitions.
There are times in our lives that we can feel stuck, uncertain, scared, and immobilized. Coming to terms with your own story and the image of yourself can be daunting. We can feel this way maybe because of a break up, onset of depression, sexual issues, problems with connecting with others, or simply a life transition. You’re uncertain if you can experience healing, but I can tell you that there is hope! Therapy is an opportunity meant to be safe, secure, and a process to learn how to thrive again. I’m here to walk you through the process of finding meaning in your own story, working through shame and doubt, and finding connection.

While I see heterosexual and LGBTQ+ adults and adolescents for a wide range of concerns, I have focused education in sex therapy and trauma therapy.
Life can be pretty horrible sometimes, leaving you feeling hopeless, isolated, angry, and afraid. LGBTQ+ persons are at a higher risk for mental health struggles such as depression, anxiety, and suicidality, yet they are less likely to pursue treatment out of fear of rejection. It is my goal to walk beside you through everything life is throwing at you, from mental health concerns, to relational conflicts, to identity exploration, to spirituality questions, providing a safe space for you to face your demons and move towards health. Just by exploring your options, you are already taking a brave first step.

As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) with additional training in sex therapy I am prepared to build relationships with clients who have experienced various traumatic events, whether that be a car accident or sexual abuse.
"There is nothing wrong with you. There is something wrong with what happened to you." The ways we are treated by others can convince us that there is something inherently wrong with who we are. Trauma and negative life experiences teach us what to believe about ourselves and the world around us, but sometimes they inform us inaccurately. Whether you've experienced abuse, difficult relationships, loss, or grief, I would love the opportunity to join you as you rediscover who you are and walk into healing and wholeness.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
