One of my greatest passions involves helping people through various transitions of life. I offer therapy in the area of Grief, Loss, Substance Use Disorders, Trauma, Behavioral Addictions, and Spiritual Direction. I believe our mental health is intricately connected to our emotional and spiritual well-being. There are times we find ourselves choosing unhealthy coping tools to redirect self-defeating, self-loathing, and self-sabotaging thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through a multi-disciplined approach I'll help you identify those negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and reconnect to the emotions you've grown numb to.

Acknowledging the need for extra support can feel difficult, however, carrying the burdens alone can be even more of a challenge. If you have found yourself reading this, perhaps you are already on your way to healing, or are searching for help for a loved one. I have experience working with adults in residential and outpatient care with eating disorders and history of trauma, including complex trauma and dissociation/dissociative disorders, including DID. I also have experience working with other mood-related disorders, body image disruptions, anxiety/panic, grief/loss, chronic pain/illness, and general life transitions.

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.
