I specialize in healing from trauma , understanding what to do when emotions show up, and grow in your relationship with yourself and others.
Are you or your child worried, striving, and exhausted, yet things don't seem to be as you wish? Are there parts of you ready to give up, while other parts push or criticize you even harder? Does it seem like familiar feelings, thoughts, and cycles go on and on, despite your best efforts? These are common experiences and frustrating. They don't seem to enhance our lives or family. Together we will bring an understanding of what is coming up for you and why. We will develop helpful skills and approaches that increase your odds of experiencing your hopes for relationships worth having, and a life worth living.

Navigating trauma is complicated. Navigating trauma , triggers, and the daily stressors of life with a partner is downright difficult. I work with individuals and couples navigating trauma to address this because I believe that we all deserves to live lives not defined by the things that’ve happened to us.

Depression, anxiety, problem anger, grief, trauma ( PTSD ), addiction, and marital conflict to name a few.
My approach to therapy is based on making an empathetic connection, promoting awareness and relational growth. I have a holistic perspective, believing we are our own best resource for growth and healing. I am skilled at providing an open and compassionate space in which to connect with what is most important to you. For therapy to be meaningful and therefore useful, I have found techniques less important. Instead, I emphasize skillful use of the therapy relationship to work deeply with a wide range of issues, challenges and presentations - honoring diversity in my work with people, ideas and identities.

I LOVE to work with people who struggle to manage the ups and downs of their emotions but aren’t sure why, want to set more boundaries with others, are trying to break cycles of generational trauma and addiction in their family of origin , have a history of chaotic and inconsistent caregivers and relationships, and have recently had life altering transitions.
The guiding values of my practice are authenticity, intention, and connection and I am likely a good fit for you if you are seeking more of these in your life. I believe that many of the people I work with seek therapy to discover what is missing and misaligned in the way they show up in their lives and our work together can assist you in that process.

Greetings! You have a lot of courage to begin your search for the right counselor. This shows a great strength toward personal growth. I have experience working with children, adolescents, teens, and adults who were overcoming grief, trauma ( PTSD ), depression (lack of motivation), addiction, anxiety, ADHD, Post-Concussion Syndrome, and disruptive life events (divorce or loss). Since graduating high school in 1995, I have been actively engaged in personal growth including emotional healing, art therapy, and movement therapies in order to overcome my own Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s/childhood traumas).

Trauma -informed treatment including EMDR is one of my specializations.
One of the beautiful things about counseling is having the privilege to hear individual's stories. Each therapeutic interaction presents with unique history, strengths, and concerns. I operate primarily from an Interpersonal orientation which looks at the counseling relationship as a "safe haven" to facilitate the change each client desires. I believe that relationship - with self and with others - heals. I strive to hold space and actively participate with each client desiring change, counseling and working toward congruence of body, mind and spirit.

My work focuses on individuals and couples navigating trauma , grief, life transitions, and more.
Experiencing trauma , loss, or upheaval is destabilizing and isolating. It can erode the relationships we value the most while making us call into question our sense of identity. Even if we avoid consciously thinking about it, the imprint of our past can wreak havoc on our physical health, our nervous system, and our present experience. The healing process asks us tune into our intuition and our bodies so that we can notice which parts of ourselves most need our attention and care. I can offer tools and support for those seeking to regain a sense of safety and connection with themselves, others, and the world around them.

Your issues may range from loss of a relationship,living in a confusing relationship, injury through past or current trauma , and/or adjusting to everyday life, such as childbirth, parenting, and work stresses.
When you are looking for a therapist you want someone who will listen, and who will hear your story without passing judgment. Once your story is told you hope your therapist can help you look at your situation from some different perspectives, and help you identify the limiting filters that you may use to view your world, so that you have more choices and possibilities in confronting and moving through tough times.

While I treat a range of mental health disorders I specialize in adolescents with depression, anxiety, trauma , behavioral and parenting issues.
As a counselor, my role is to create a safe environment where you can feel secure and supported. My style is respectful, warm and interactive. I value a strong therapeutic alliance as a basis for personal and behavioral change and emotional growth. When working with teens, I find collaborating with caregivers to be most effective in fostering growth and positive change. I also find it essential working with adolescents to build a strong rapport as a foundation to further enhance the therapeutic process.

I naturally use a trauma informed lens, and lean towards a Psychodynamic, Attachment, and Person Centered approach to get a big picture of you and your experience.
Whether you are looking to explore a specific concern or a general sense of unease, I can help by providing a compassionate space to explore the area of growth you wish to expand. I believe healing happens when we feel safe, seen, and heard. We can then begin releasing the damaging beliefs and feelings we carry with us, knowingly or unknowingly. As we move through, my hope is for you to gain a sense of ease in your heart and connect to your inner power and wisdom.

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.
