We hold specialities in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy for youth, substance abuse counseling, child-parent psychotherapy, EMDR and BrainSpotting.
We love to collaborate with clients to help them draw from their own expertise, build on their own positive values, discover their own skills, and use these new tools to work through conflicts and hardships. We are systems therapist. What that means is: we like to approach problems that people have within the context of social, political and cultural storylines that influence the way we view ourselves and our own personal stories. We use this same approach in family therapy to seek ways to change the way the family system works rather than trying to "fix" a specific family member.

“You are not a machine with broken parts,” writes author Yohann Hari. We are humans on this challenging journey of life. We navigate love and loneliness, trauma and triumph, and endless messages from our culture which say we are not successful enough, attractive enough, rich enough…good enough. I have a different idea—you are enough! In therapy, I provide safe, non-judgmental space to meet you in the full context of your life, family, culture, and dreams for the future. Let me help you find and heal your true self and build authentic relationships that make your life less stressful and more meaningful.

The majority of my work involves trauma or struggle in some form.
I enjoy working with individuals who are interested in experiencing a change in their life. Perhaps you want to have greater insight and understanding or perhaps you want to make some really focused changes in your life; I would love to join you in that process and offer support in the journey. I also recognize that pretty much everyone right now is working hard to stay afloat so I am eager to offer a wide array of hours including evenings and weekends as well as telehealth services.

We work collaboratively and creatively; I check to be sure my directions and suggestions are meaningful to you. I make sure that you are learning something significant about yourself in every session. You deserve the respect and support you need to go into uncharted territory. I care about my clients and my clients know it; that is the inspiration that keeps my work exciting to me.

I am also well-versed in treating trauma , anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief/loss, and issues with interpersonal conflicts.
I look forward to helping you to learn about yourself and how you can make effective changes in your own life. We will work collaboratively to meet your goals. This includes building self understanding to increase insight, with the purpose of using that new knowledge to take different actions and respond in new ways. My approach is compassionate, warm, geared towards action, and I’m kind of silly sometimes (when appropriate, of course).

My work is grounded through trauma care, existential, humanistic, person-centered, attachment, parts of self, and multicultural dynamics.
Let's suppose you met your divine self at this very moment! Your divine self is the one that expresses your soul's light through words, thoughts, actions, and all that you are within. What would your divine self say about having the opportunity to explore some of the experiences that may have caused a tornado within, maybe, even a feeling of being lost. You matter and you are important. I believe in you and I want to show you that, but, I would like to give you a brief background about me and my work first.

For the past 20 years, I have worked with families, couples, adults, and adolescents. Using cognitive-behavioral theory with narrative techniques, I help empower clients to explore areas within their lives that present challenges and inhibit change, and assist them with finding solutions that will work for them. However, I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is a vital component within any program, which means that I believe that any work needs to be collaborative between myself and my clients. I am certified to deliver trauma -focused treatments as well as providing services to help manage stress and anxiety.

I am trained in EMDR and I am especially interested in working with sexual trauma and complex trauma .
You are the expert on your life and your own experiences. Together, we will create space for you to heal. Although at times you may feel broken, you aren’t in need of fixing; you are navigating systems that are unsatisfactory, which can leave anyone feeling fragmented. Support is the driving factor for change, and I aim to support you through whatever changes present themselves on your path to feeling whole. My clients begin to feel a sense of wholeness that comes from accepting their thoughts and feelings as valid parts of a human experience. These moments of connection in therapy extend into relationships with others and yourself.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
