About My Clients

Trauma can leave you feeling alone, shut down, angry, and afraid. You didn’t ask for trauma, but it found you anyway. The thing you want most is to go back to how things were before the trauma but you can’t seem to rewind the clock. This desire to time travel and change the past or control the future keeps us even more stuck in trauma and PTSD because it gets in the way of confronting these demons. Add to this struggle the difficulties of finding a good trauma therapist and it can feel hopeless.

My Background and Approach

Working with trauma survivors for over 10 years has given me the insight, authenticity, and skills needed to help you rediscover your resilience. I feel so lucky to be inspired by my clients' courage and strength. Whether you want evidence based treatment or more exploratory work, I am here to walk beside you on this courageous journey. My approach as a psychologist is to empower you to decide how you want to move forward from your trauma. I am trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), which have been thoroughly researched and shown to be the gold standard treatments for trauma survivors. While using these evidence-based treatments, I tailor my work to each one of my clients' unique needs so it never feels like a cookie cutter therapy session. I strive to connect with my clients both in their pain and in their joy, which is rediscovered along the way.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that trauma is a universal experience - we have all overcome pain and suffering in our lives and the ways we choose to cope do not make us "abnormal" or "broken." Choosing to begin trauma work can be very scary, and finding the right therapist can be even more daunting. I know hw important fit is when it comes to finding the right provider, which is why I offer free video consultations - I want every potential client to have the chance to meet me first and decide after that if I will be a good fit for them. That said, I do NOT take it personally when I'm not a good fit because I know I'm not for everyone! When that happens, my next step is to work with the individual to figure out realistic next steps and referrals. All I want is for survivors to feel like they can finally live their lives again, whether that's through therapy with me, someone else, or some other form of healing all together!
