Psychological and emotional trauma is the result of extremely stressful events that shake your sense of safety and security, contributing to feelings of helplessness and fear. Traumatic experiences aren't always a threat to life or safety but can really be any situation that leaves you feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Because trauma differs between individuals according to their subjective experiences, people often react differently. A trauma-informed therapist can help you learn how to cope with difficult emotions, relieve symptoms and build healthier self-esteem.

Trauma Therapy is customized to your own individual experience. Trauma therapy is informed and looks gently at how the traumatic experiences in your life have affected you.
Trauma is any event that leaves a negative lasting effect. It is stored in our body and often shapes how we think about ourselves. Trauma therapy considers the symptoms you might be experiencing and gives you control and predictability throughout your treatment. I will work with you to help you find relief from the suffering you have been experiencing so you can enjoy life and have peace.
The resilience of the human spirit is amazing. I have been working or volunteering with survivors of violence for over 20 years. It is one of the most rewarding aspects of my life. I have worked at safe houses, rape crisis centers, and with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Witnessing people go from surviving to thriving is a privilege I am honored to be a part of.

I am trained in a trauma modality called Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). TRM is a mind-body approach which focuses on the biological basis of trauma and the automatic ways the human body responds when faced with threats to self and others. This model offers the ability to deepen a client's Resiliency Zone to adapt to life stressors with flexibility and decreased traumatic stress reactions.
