Majority of my caseload in the last 5 years have been sexually abused or assaulted by a family member, friend or stranger. I work with these clients diligently to help resolve negative thoughts (“it’s my fault) and feelings (“I feel numb all over”) to get back to feeling happy again. You are stronger than you think and I’m here to make you realize that.
I am a Christian and have incorporated Christian aspects and ideologies into my practice if requested. I believe in spirituality and not religion and help others to focus on the spiritual aspect and not to get caught up on some man-made religious practices. Since incorporating spirituality, clients have discovered a new aspect of self and grow mentally and spiritually.
I have worked with individuals with PTSD for over 7 years. Trained in EMDR therapy to help decrease the intensity of the traumatic event. I’ve also worked with individuals that have self-harmed, had thoughts of suicide, or have displayed other behaviors (overeating, low self-esteem, promiscuity, etc.) due to PTSD.
