My Approach

There is hope and healing; even when it might not feel like it.

Maybe your anxiety is becoming too difficult to manage, or your relationships aren’t working. You might feel lost or stuck, or like you can’t move beyond that one thing from your past that keeps bubbling up. Whatever you’re struggling with at this moment (and we all have something!) I’m glad you’ve found your way here.

The unfortunate reality is that life is hard. Nobody makes it through unscathed, and when you have experienced trauma the potential for healing can feel impossible. Even though trauma is pretty widely experienced, it can feel incredibly isolating. The effects of trauma are real, complex, and often intense. If you’re facing them by yourself it can be easy to get stuck with no clear path forward.

Research shows that trauma and overwhelm gets stored in our bodies. You may not even be consciously aware of all the impact experiences have on you, but you know you have a strong bodily and emotional response in the moment. Because trauma is stored in the brain and body, it is vital to integrate brain research and expressive modalities into our plan for you. Specifically I utilize Prolonged Exposure (PE), EMDR, and other treatment approaches in order to process trauma and PTSD on all levels.

Take your next step toward growth.
