Considerable past experience with populations including professional athletes, burn victims, air crash and other trauma situations, effects of institutionalization, and survivors of life threatening events.
Complex issues are a specialty: when legal issues are involved such as child custody or criminal matters; if coordination of medication with your physician is needed along with therapy; if medical problems are altering your mood and relationships; when job or school performance is influenced by personal issues and problems; if you are needing to make thoughtful decisions about serious situations involving yourself or others; and older children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families are among my clients.

Using EMDR, I'll help you resolve the blockages that the trauma has created.
Discover what your brain can do at its best! I'll show you how to win over your thoughts and how to feel confident in your own decision-making processes. I'll also provide you with a mission for the week to carry out until our next session, to give you time to: apply what we’ve worked on in session in your daily life, determine what works, and where you have difficulty. When we meet in the following session, we’ll review what you experienced applying your new tools and strategies. You’ll have accountability with me, plus a sounding board that asks questions that get you thinking critically about matters that bring you to therapy.

I have been working with anxiety containment and trauma resolution for most of my career. We can't change the past but we can change the power of the past. In the same way we can't stop anxiety but we can predict when it will come and create strategies and skills to contain it. Containing anxiety empowers clients not to get stuck in the catastrophizing downward spiral. Other areas of expertise: 1) LGBTQ+, Gender identity, sexual trauma , and transforming childhood belief systems.

I am a clinical psychologist with a special interest in health and wellness, both physical and emotional. I have also completed specialized training in evidence-based therapies for treatment of PTSD . I have enjoyed working with medical populations as this has deepened my understanding of the mind-body connection, particularly how health conditions can contribute to emotional problems and vice versa. Although we may not always be able to choose or change our current circumstances, we are able to choose how we think about, manage, and cope with our circumstances which can lead to a change in our overall health.

Currently, I work with adolescents, adults, and couples who struggle with anxiety, self-esteem, grief, trauma , and unhealthy relationships.
What stops a person from growing mentally and emotionally? Could it be fear, past traumas or the uncertainty of the future? Even though growing can be challenging, the truth is that it is necessary. The questions then become, "How does one grow emotionally and mentally? Where do I start?" For anyone with these questions, counseling is an essential part of your growth. The growth begins with taking your first step by scheduling an initial session. Together, we will address the the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that are holding you hostage. The sessions will be designed to grow you into the emotionally healthy person you want to be.

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.
