If you are browsing through this website then you're most likely trying to find help with something in your life that you've been struggling with for for years. Maybe it's depression or anxiety and you need help trying to manage it, someone to hold it with you. Perhaps you have a hard time staying in a relationship for any length of time? Or maybe you're holding onto the secret of sexual abuse as a child or teen and have never told anyone. Sometimes things shatter and we don't know why, but it does. Life shatters us. I would love the privilege of walking with you. We can do it together. You don't have to do it alone anymore.

I primarily provide individual therapy to adults (ages 18-45) who wish to address acute or long-term trauma, specifically childhood sexual abuse /sexual assault but other traumas as well. I approach each client through a developmental lens, understanding that concerns manifest differently depending on one's age and developmental stage at the time of the trauma as well as at the time of treatment. I also am available to work with parents, many who are navigating challenges associated with helping a child who has been traumatized, who wish to explore more positive discipline strategies.

I use a holistic approach to healing that includes mind, body and spirit. I have a particular focus on chronic health issues, women's issues such as infertility and reproductive health, sexual abuse and PTSD. Every pain, trauma, and obstacle we experience in life has information to share with us. The most difficult times we face can be truly transformative if we know how to listen to them. Sometimes we can get lost down these turbulent roads and my job is to help you navigate the path that you are already on.

My practice is focused on helping individuals understand and heal from the profound wounds caused by emotional or physical violence/neglect in close personal relationships. This includes adults who've experienced childhood abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, as well as sexual assault , violence, and betrayal trauma. By conceptualizing complex forms of trauma from a feminist perspective, I investigate issues of gender, power, and culture, and identify them as the center of oppression, distress, and dysfunction in a person's life. Relational trauma often creates isolation, and I believe it is only in relationship that we heal.

I am trained well to serve clients that desire to face issues of sexual abuse /trauma, narrative, and relational dynamics within relationships.

Trauma touches every aspect of our lives. Whether you’ve experienced domestic violence, sexual assault , child abuse, or another form of violence, you may see its impact in multiple areas: a sense of being always “on” or hyper-alert; challenges in relationships and the ability to trust or open up to others; feelings of guilt, shame, or self-blame. You have done everything you know to do to move through these things on your own. You might feel like you’ve made some progress or like you’re still stuck. Either way, you’re ready to gain new insight into yourself and your experiences in order to heal, repair, and move forward.

I have also learned directly from masters in the field of Couples Therapy: John & Julie Gottman and Phil Ringstrom to address these very issues.
