There is more to your life than pain, suffering, and hopelessness. I am a highly experienced
psychotherapist passionate about supporting you to heal from your trauma and empowering you to live a happier more fulfilling life.

Traumatic experiences, whether past or current, can leave us with negative beliefs about ourselves and the world. You may be experiencing feelings of guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression, struggling with low self esteem, nightmares panic attacks or chronic pain, to name just a few, and can lead to the development of unhealthy or destructive coping strategies. All of which, if left untreated, keep us repeating the same unhealthy patterns over and over and prevent us from moving forward in life. As a therapist, I believe in the connection between the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. I have over 18 years of experience working with trauma, including sexual trauma, physical abuse/domestic violence, and combat trauma, as well as grief and loss. anxiety, depression, nightmares, flashbacks, anger, and isolation. I also have extensive experience with PTSD, women's issues, LGBTQA, and life transitions. Using a blend of EMDR, mindfulness, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy and traditional talk therapy, I create a safe confidential environment where you feel listened to, understood and challenged. I will support you to release the past and move forward in all areas of your life. I can help you to develop healthier coping strategies, feel more empowered and confident in your life, and reconnect with your resilience, your joy, your vitality, and your peace of mind. Taking that first step to seek support may feel risky .It takes courage, but you are worth it
