About My Clients

Did you experience a traumatic event(s) that you can't get out of your head? Since then, do you avoid people, places or things? Do you feel disconnected from others, numb, or on autopilot? Are you losing sleep? High Anxiety? Do you no longer feel safe in places that you should? Quick tempered? Are your close relationships suffering? These are common symptoms people experience after a traumatic event. You are not alone, I understand, and I can help. Let me help you.

My Background and Approach

I work with individuals of all backgrounds and personal experiences. In particular, first responders, military veterans, and crime survivors and their families. Not only am I a therapist, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist Individual, a Master Peace Officer of over 18 years trained in Crisis Intervention and Critical Incident Stress Management and Debriefing. I also work with crime survivors of abuse, sexual assault, and other criminal acts of violence. I am a Crime Prevention Specialist who teach prevention as well. I am trauma focused and I have learned first hand working within the criminal justice system what trauma and abuse can do to the mental health and wellness of an individual. Using a variety of therapeutic approaches, my mission is to help you overcome life challenges, achieve your goals, and enjoy a more satisfying life. I offer secure and confidential online counseling. In-person sessions can be arranged.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an advocate of mental health care and self-care. It is ok to admit that you are not ok and to seek help. I understand that taking the first step to seek therapy can be difficult. I teach practical skills to help you deal with life complexities. Let's demystify therapy together. If you are looking for a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space to grow, process your traumatic experience(s), feel "normal" and take your life back, I encourage you to start your transformation by contacting me. Together, we can help you break free and find your happiness.
