My specialties include grief and trauma , adjustment to disability, relationship issues, stroke and TBI, anxiety and depression.
Life can be wonderful, interesting, challenging but no one ever said it would be easy! Never before have we faced such a difficult onslaught of problems affecting our work, school, social and even medical aspects of our lives. The good news is that counseling has never been easier to access. Our friends tell us what we want to hear, counselors tell us what we need to hear and give us the tools to make changes to help us on our journey. I have been a counselor since 1991 and am just as passionate about my work today as the day I started.

I have utilized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Acudetox, and Trauma Informed Care to treat individuals who have experiences with trauma in all walks of life, who have symptoms of depression, anxiety, phobias, struggles with substances, and abuse.
If you are looking for solutions or if you are seeking help, I know it can be hard. What you are feeling is normal. Taking the first step in discovering a sense of self and developing healthy relationships can be a challenging process in itself. In therapy, I will work with you to understand emotional triggers that can feel overwhelming and impact daily life. I will work to meet you where you are and allow you to guide the process of emotional healing. My hope is to help individuals heal from unresolved traumatic experiences such as military experiences, loss of identity, sexual trauma , physical trauma , or emotional trauma .

In this approach I specialize in bipolar, depression, PTSD , LGBT issues, and substance/alcohol abuse.
Do you struggle with just being yourself these days? Well, kick off your shoes, relax your feet, let's get real and talk. Many people see therapy as a never ending cycle of therapists repeating, "How does that make you feel?". I can assure therapy with me is never a cliche. I know how easy it is to feel alone and always asking over and over why me or what else can go wrong. I can understand needing a break and wanting to scream. Thats why I want to listen, act, and help you transform by exploring those issues you may be struggling with together and take back control of your life because you matter too.

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.
