"Anger. Guilt. Resentment. These are the common themes we all struggle with, today. Sadness is all too real when we hurt, and when we do not cope well, or do not know how to cope with our anger, guilt, and/or resentment, we can become depressed. What you will see, is a vicious cycle; a depressed person then becomes angry, and resentful, and can start to feel guilt. We are all able and capable of making better decisions for ourselves and for our loved ones. There is no shame in asking for help...only regret in never trying. I can help you."

"I have been active in mental health care for over 30 years. Many of my clients are referred because of my knowledge of PTSD and other trauma issues. I began trauma-informed psychotherapy by servicing children under the care of the Department of Children's Services. Through Play Therapy to address immediate traumatic experiences, I gained an understanding of the brain development across the human growth years. As I became expert in treatment of all ages, I learned that untreated trauma was the underlying cause of chronic anxiety, panic attacks, depression, many somatic medical problems,and cognitive learning difficulties."
