Trauma is an area of expertise that I have found great passion for. What we perceive as traumatic varies from person to person so I want to validate that if you feel you have experienced trauma, you certainly have and I can work with you to lessen your response to triggers that may affect your daily functioning so that you are able to focus on what is important to you in this stage of your life.
I have worked with young people with histories of sexual abuse and survival from domestic minor sex trafficking for several years now and this is a population that is close to my heart. I have received training to better support this population including EMDR, which is incredibly successful in addressing trauma and alleviating our response to triggers.
Late adolescence/early adulthood is a time of great transition, during which you may be making decisions that will affect your life going forward on a different level than you may be used to. This is an exciting time but can also be a bit unsettling so having support of a clinician/coach can be very helpful during this time.
