I have facilitated therapies with all ages and have passion for working with those who have experienced trauma.
My ideal client would be someone who is open to expressive therapies when words are not enough. Goals ranging from increasing coping skills and self-acceptance to crisis intervention, I believe that connection is one of the most important factors in the therapy setting and clients would want to partner together in healing.

I offer a space for individuals to explore issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationships, identity, loneliness and meaning.
Therapy can be beneficial for dealing with the challenges of life; both the ongoing and the sudden. You may be feeling lost, overwhelmed, or dissatisfied; maybe you have stubborn patterns, or you want to get to know yourself a little more. I will work with you where you are at, using various approaches from CBT, Mindfulness, Existentialism and traditional psychotherapeutic methods. Sometimes, we will laugh or cry; some sessions will feel supportive, and others, frank and challenging. I encourage you to bring your whole self to the sessions, ask whatever you want, and risk going to uncomfortable places.

Areas of focus: trauma, depression, neurodivergence, chronic illness, and relational stress.
Things kind of suck right now, don't they? At the time of writing this, the word feels like it's a dumpster fire. If you're like me though, things have always felt rough internally and connection has never been easy. I hope to offer connection and unconditional positive regard for anyone whose ever felt like they're on the outside looking in. The vision I hold for all clients is to know they are worthy and valid exactly as they are in this moment, and my role is to hold that belief for you until you can hold it yourself. I practice from an anti-racist, relational cultural, fat-positive, and generally affirming lens.

Relationships are difficult! Taking care of a partnership is not something we are taught how to do, and many of us didn’t have good models of this growing up. You and your partner are stuck in unhealthy patterns that you feel are related to your troubled past. Intimacy starts with a secure connection. When you feel safe in a relationship, you can disagree and be authentic. You can grow as individuals, without threatening the relationship. If you and your partner are resentful, feeling stuck, acting out, or otherwise off-course, then you may be in need of some help. I can support you in re-connecting and thriving again.

My clients come in experiencing self-doubt, anxiety and believing they are not quite “good enough”. Maybe you’re feeling the constant weight of perfectionism in your life and relationships. You could be tired of over performing for others and under delivering to yourself. Many of my clients overly accommodate others at the expense of their own needs, resulting in uneasiness in the body, nervous system exhaustion and burnout! I see therapy as a way to start connecting with and speaking your truth and to finally quit abandoning yourself! Most of my clients are younger women (UT students welcome!) however, I see all genders ages 18+.

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.
