About My Clients
You’ve been getting through life, maybe you’ve always just been “getting through” maybe you once felt you were living life then lost this. But you’ve been carrying a heavy burden of what’s happened to you and still trying to make life work. It’s so exhausting, you wonder and wish for something more than this from life. With trauma therapy, I’ll help you process and heal from the pain of the past and connect to yourself to feel more peace and create the life you’re wanting to live.
My Background and Approach
I’m here to help you heal your trauma and reclaim your power to build an enchanting life. I’m passionate about helping survivors because I am a survivor and experienced first hand all the struggles with finding good support. It is so hard to search for a skilled therapist and start trauma therapy when we’re also actively trying to get back into some sense of safety in our body and world. I’m here to help you with all of it; build safety within yourself and your world, process and heal trauma, and integrate and reconnect into life and meaningful relationships. Through recovery, we can become the fierce warriors our stories tell us about. With each client, we co-create an individualized plan that draws from EMDR, DBT for trauma, CPT, Trauma Focused CBT, and ACT; all evidence-based forms of therapy for trauma recovery.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe survivors are the most powerful change makers in our world. I witnessed how dominant culture strengthens and uses violence to traumatize and ultimately overpower true change makers. They do this through minimizing our trauma, defending perpetrators, and reinforcing laws that limit our rights. I could not stand by and watch the world turn away from us. My work is fueled by that ever present fire, and my deep conviction that with each survivor’s recovery we are all more liberated. I’m here to help heal your trauma and reclaim your power. This is not an easy journey, and for many of us the hardest one we’ll ever trek. We never asked to take this path, but here we are. Ours is a warrior's journey.
