I have received both basic and advanced certification in Accelerated Resolution Therapy, a specialized trauma therapy for helping clients who suffer from PTSD , anxiety, depression and OCD.
Do you feel like no one sees you or your pain? Do you feel misunderstood and alone in your thoughts? Are you navigating through life holding on to emotional pain and circumstances that leave you feeling alone or out out of control? Living with all of these thoughts, feelings and emotions can be overwhelming to our daily routine and function and just having another person to walk this journey of life can create healing and new perspective.

I believe in your ability to overcome anxiety and depression. Let me help you learn to believe in yourself, too. With knots in our stomach and racing thoughts overwhelming our mind, it can be challenging to think we can feel better. You deserve the chance to untangle anxious thoughts and heal from past trauma . I believe you already have the qualities you need to feel better. It's just my job to shine a flashlight in the darkness when you struggle to navigate your way to long-term solutions. I truly enjoy helping individual adults, teens, parents, and families reach a healthier level of functioning and satisfaction in their life.

I have experience working with clients of all ages (6+) and diverse backgrounds primarily those who have experienced trauma or struggle with addictions & recovery.
Every season in life brings a new set of obstacles and challenges. Sometimes, the season we are currently living in can feel overwhelming, anxiety provoking, and uncomfortable. Are you having difficulty navigating the current stressors in your life? That very brokenness is where the beauty of the counseling relationship comes into play. By utilizing a person centered approach and nonjudgmental stance, I aim to provide support to my clients on their path to self growth and healing.

Now in Huntington too! Therapy is a place to pause, reflect on what you are seeking in life and explore the barriers preventing you from taking that next step in your journey. Life changes or chronic situations can throw us off course, leaving us to feel out of sync, confused, & disconnected from life. Whether you are looking to reconnect, find purpose, learn new coping skills, process trauma or loss, manage anxiety, deal with shame or make a life changing decision, therapy can be a safe place to discover the power you have within yourself to design your own solutions & find new ways to navigate challenging situations.

I am here to help you heal the distress you are feeling coming from anxiety, depression addiction, trauma , PTSD or family problems. It can be hard to connect with a therapist at first. You don't know this person and how are you going to feel trusting and secure with a stranger? Yet you are in pain and need help. It is just a first step, one that does not have to lead to commitment. You are in charge and are simply "auditioning" to see if this connection feels good and helpful.

I work with couples and individuals who deal with trauma , stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues.
I'm all about balance. When things are out of balance, life can leave you feeling depressed, anxious, and overwhelmed. I'm a great listener, but with that said, my approach to counseling is active and highly individualized. I believe your personality (nature) and experiences (nurture) form the landscape of your identity. I will often weave together different modalities like DBT, CBT, Schema Therapy, and art in order to be responsive to what is revealed from the unconscious and help you bring it to light. If you're a seeker, whatever the struggles you are facing that have led you to search for help, I'm glad you're reaching out!

Currently accepting new clients. Modern life can be a complicated and frightening thing. Daily there are news reports of catastrophes, rising economic problems, war, disasters, and the trials of every day living. Continuing issues from the pandemic, with teens and many adults feeling isolated due to the feelings of loss associated with it. Fear of the unknown, and concerns over modern life. Feeling as though you are alone, depressed, and anxious in a ever fast paced world. But hope still exists, it helps you to thrive in this modern world as opposed to just surviving. Hope is there waiting for you to find it, and help you through.

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.
