I work with queer women who struggle with depression and anxiety due to shame, guilt, and unresolved trauma using trauma-formed therapy.
Clinical Social Worker in North Little Rock, AR
As a survivor of both childhood & adulthood abuse in many forms, I understand how it impacts your ability to trust, love & live free of shame, guilt & despair. It took me having many anger outbursts at work before I was able to accept the truth & seek help for myself. I will not say it will be easy because i would be lying, but I can say that finally facing it will be worth the pain & hurt once you make it through to the other side.
Growing up as a preacher's kid in a sex-negative home, I understand the struggle of trying to reconcile sexual feelings & attractions that the church labels as "sexual sins" & "abominations" with your identity as a Christian or person of faith. You either make a choice to walk in your truth, whatever that may be or continue to live in the bondage of emotional & mental untruths. I want to help you finally discover & embrace your truth & live in it freely & unapologetically.
I am a certified facilitator of PREPARE-ENRICH Premarital Counseling. I love when couples make the decision to use this counseling to strengthen their relationship.
I am a therapist who chooses to use many aspects of expressive art such as music, writing, and art in my work with adults, especially when working on trauma.
I am a Registered Integrative Sandtray Therapist. During my play therapy certification training, I fell in love with Sandtray therapy & knew I would continue on this journey. I use it when working with adults to help them connect words (the left brain) to the their memories & emotions (the right). As someone who has personally experienced the power of sandtray, I am equally amazed when I see how it transforms my clients.
The aftermath of an affair is full of feelings of mistrust, betrayal, anger, sadness, confusion, & doubt. Both parties deserve to be heard & understood not blamed & shamed. The reality is that recovering from the aftermath of an affair is not quick or easy for either party because the act of betrayal is traumatic for everyone involved. I strive to help both parties navigate this process of recovery with honesty, transparency, & gentle redirection, correction, guidance, & education.
