Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX
Living with PTSD is like walking around with a giant Jack-in-the-box. You never know when it's going to go off and feel like a punch to the face. The silver lining, though, is that it is highly treatable. EMDR and TF-CBT are two highly researched treatment options that are proven to treat PTSD, as well as the depressed symptoms that often go hand in hand with PTSD. You don't have to live with the negative effects of the past forever. Effective treatment allows you to move forward. Are you ready?
When you've been involved in a controlling relationship or are just starting out in life, it can be easy to doubt yourself. Over time, that can snowball into a lifetime of missed opportunities and mistakes. But it doesn't have to be that way. Counseling can help you work through the events that have caused you to doubt yourself. Together, we can help you better understand yourself, build confidence, and create a life you are proud to call your own.
Many people think sexual abuse or assault is the worst thing that can happen to a person. To me, the worst thing is to spend a lifetime stuck in that moment and unable to move forward. I'm here to help give you the tools to do just that. My work with survivors has shown me the unbelievable strength and determination that human beings can possess. I am honored to have really effective treatment modalities to help my clients find their strength and to heal.
