Besides relationship issues, I also particularly work with various women's issues, including childhood sexual abuse and adult rape.
Relationships can be some of the most difficult things we face. When we don't have understanding of our own hearts it makes it difficult to communicate what we need, and when we don't understand, we can sometimes demand of others to read our minds and understand us. When this inevitably fails, we then blame the other for not meeting our needs. If you find yourself hurting over failed relationships, or are currently trying to make a painful relationship work, perhaps I can help you. Please visit my website for more information.

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." I believe we are all at the forefront of our own inner battles. Maybe you're struggling in relationships or with anxiety and you want deeper, healthier and more authentic life experiences. Or maybe you're on the healing path from past abusive relationships, trauma, and/or sexual assault /abuse and you want to feel confidence and empowerment.

After graduate school, I worked in the sexual assault and domestic violence fields for six years.
How do you care for yourself? How do you deal with adversity especially when your struggling? All of us have a tendency to latch on to reasons of why we do what we do, but sometimes these reasons aren’t always true and can actually cause us and those we love more suffering. I look forward to working with you on any issue, in a safe confidential space. I have a collaborative style that focuses on the goals of healthy processing, empowerment, and self-sufficiency.

I work with people who have experienced trauma in childhood or adulthood who want to heal from the aftereffects of their experiences. I believe that many challenges you may live with daily, such as anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, and more, may actually be signs of traumatic stress. Together, we can learn tools to manage your traumatic stress warning signs and work on reducing these symptoms to help you move towards the best version of yourself.

Pain can lead to the most profound feelings of isolation and hopelessness. I have experience working with individuals, families, and couples, helping people during the most vulnerable times in their lives and have seen first hand how unresolved and damaged relationships have negatively impacted people and caused pain. One of people's biggest regrets at end-of-life are the relationships they have neglected. One of my greatest passions is working with individuals and families to address hurts and impasses: being both witness and participant.

*Does not take insurance* The main population I see is women and college students, with a few exceptions interspersed along the way (I’m looking at you, guys! I do work with men as well). I see 18+ only. I primarily work with college students who are working through all the things you would expect to work through in your late teens and early twenties! Anxiety, life transitions, depression, processing childhood trauma, processing your family and how it impacts you, relationship issues among partners and friends- the list goes on!

I see therapy as a collaborative process between client and therapist, each with different areas of expertise. I believe the goal of therapy is not only to solve "problems" but to help clients grow and find balance and wholeness. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) , a method of therapy that numerous research studies have shown to be effective in the treatment of trauma. It has been shown to be as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy and often provides relief in fewer sessions.

I use a conversational therapy where the patient and therapist collaborate together to find solutions. I believe the patient knows best where they want to go, and I as a therapist help to clarify how to get there. It is my belief that though in a given moment there may be overwhelming, confused or just frustrated feelings, the human spirit and personal resources provide the tools to find meaning and growth.

Most Marriage and Family Therapists study systems. Even if an individual comes alone to a counseling session, they bring many influences. My role is to help you find your unique path amid the many voices, and become your best self. I have observed that almost everyone has had a time where they wondered if they have all the necessary life tools to move in a positive direction. Utilizing a safe environment, individual creativity and resources, I have seen people truly Become.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS WITHOUT A REFERRAL** Sometimes it can feel like you are stuck in a pattern and can't find your way out. It can seem like you can't stop doing things that will hurt you in the long run. You find yourself saying, "This is just how I am." The story you believe about yourself- about what you deserve - is what will manifest. That narrative will run your life until you dismantle it, & rewrite it. If you aren't running it, it is running you. " The story always wins™ ". My approach is to help you figure out where you learned these things, & discard those that cause you pain & are no longer productive.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
