You catch yourself repeating “it’ll get better, it’ll pass,” but it hasn’t. You’re hoping the tension in your chest, your sweaty palms, and your clenched jaw will finally stop but nothing has changed. You think, “I can just handle it on my own”. Googling “stress”, “overwhelmed”, and “anxiety”, brings more questions than answers. What would actually work to help me find relief? After a few tries, you realize deep breathing isn’t enough. You realize it’s more challenging than you thought. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. You don’t have to feel this way forever.

I specialize in treating anxiety and unresolved trauma for survivors of abuse, crime, assault, attachment trauma, and complex grief.
Seeking out therapy can be both a difficult and rewarding choice. Often clients come in with problems that are incredibly painful, stressful, and frightening. After working through their issues, clients are often surprised to find they have gained deep insight, compassion, joy, and wisdom for themselves and others. They often look back at their suffering and can view it as the "best problem of their life." I find turning difficult life circumstances into this best problem focus is the goal of therapy for many of my clients.

I also completed Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for trauma.
I see good psychotherapy as a collaborative process guided by your needs. I strongly believe that individuals and families have inherent strengths that can help them deal effectively with their problems and make meaningful change. However, many people are too busy or too overwhelmed to figure out what changes they would like to make or to develop the strengths needed to make those changes. Fortunately, we've learned a lot in recent years about creating change--psychological, emotional, and behavioral. When you come in, we will work together to decide what changes you want to make and how.

With over 6 years helping clients work through trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain, and 20 years working with athletes, I can help.
Despite working hard and achieving goals, life is hard. When my clients first come in, they are frustrated things aren’t going the way they would like. You know life can be better but nothing seems to be improving, even with hard work. You feel like you’re failing, and your confidence is tanking. You worry that your problems aren’t important enough and have thought that people like you don’t ask for help. Or maybe you're in constant pain and no doctor has been able to provide you with any relief. You feel stuck. You may even feel like you deserve to suffer. Feeling alone and discouraged is hard.

My approach to therapy is trauma-informed and attachment- and relationally based.
Sometimes life brings challenges that are difficult to manage on our own. Maybe you are experiencing a major life transition – a move, marriage, a baby, new job, a medical issue, divorce, retirement. Even "happy" transitions can be difficult. You may want change in your relationship or help determining whether it can be repaired. Perhaps you are dealing with grief from a loss or need support as you navigate having a partner or loved one dealing with addiction. I work with individuals and couples with a wide range of concerns including trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, personal growth, life adjustments.

My goal is to work with you in a partnership to create solutions that are specific to your unique needs. I'm a believer that the opposite of depression is not happiness, but resiliency. We can work together to explore your depression, anxiety, or shame which are often the result from a trauma, or series of traumas. I have found that the most effective therapy has an individualized focus and is a collaboration between you and me. The focus will be to help you explore possible alternative ways of thinking and behaving - the building blocks of change.

Talk therapy forms the foundation for my all work. Your story is important. When clients seek to deepen their healing process I help them take the next steps through somatically based therapies. The integration of bodymind (soma) can help clients conquer depression, recover from trauma, relieve anxiety, cope with limiting medical and physical conditions, and increase their capacity to embrace life. As an Exercise Specialist, I have been helping people overcome back problems for over 26 years with my Active EASE program. I also lead InterPlay, a seriously fun way to come at things from a different direction.

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.
