Before becoming a therapist I taught college Communication Studies classes. I have always enjoyed learning about people and how they think and communicate with each other, and helping others to improve their lives and relationships. I became a therapist, so that I could work individually with people and help them more deeply. I have had my own experiences in therapy, and trying to find what works. I believe finding the right therapist, at the right time, is important. I specialize in trauma, which I believe includes all kinds of experiences that were traumatic to you. Whether it is rape or abuse, or a relationship with a parent that was difficult or hurtful, or many other examples. Many people have had traumatic experiences, and often they don’t think about their experiences as traumatic. A traumatic experience may be continuing to affect your life and relationships, even though it happened a long time ago.
