About My Clients

Do you find yourself avoiding people, places, or activities that you used to enjoy because they remind you of experiences you would rather forget? Do you ever feel like you're in the passenger seat of your life, rather than driving, because your past feels like a thumb on one side of the scale when you are making decisions? You deserve to move forward in life without being weighed down by the past, and I look forward to teaching you skills that will help you lay that burden down.

My Background and Approach

The tools and I will provide to you are all focused on giving you back control over your mind and body when you are experiencing thoughts, feelings, and memories that you don't want anymore. My goal is to give you the tools to take care of yourself as quickly as is safe and possible, and to work my way out of your life as quickly as possible. My work is always guided by you, the client, and your expressed goals and desired outcomes. I will teach you about what trauma does to your brain, and how to start to diminish the impact of that trauma. These tools are based on what I have learned and studied since 2013, and what worked for me in my own recovery dating back to 2005. For the last five years, I have worked with children and adults who have suffered traumas ranging from family separation due to incarceration of a parent to torture. I have pursued additional training in two trauma-specific treatment interventions (EMDR and TF-CBT), and working with victims of sexual violence.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that your voice matters, and that you are the expert on your experience. I believe that the role of a good therapist is to work their way out of their client's life as quickly as is safe and possible, as soon as the client has the tools they need to safeguard their own mental and emotional health. I believe that trauma is any experience that causes such big feelings that it changes the way we are able to perceive and interact with the world around us. I believe all victims of sexual violence, and am proud to serve as the Director of Counseling of a sexual assault crisis center. I believe that the relationship between a client and a therapist is different from a friendship, in that I will always be willing to hold pain, stress, and other feelings for you, but will never ask you to hold anything for me. I believe you deserve a place to set your burdens down for a moment and process your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or rejection. I believe in you.
