About My Clients

You're exhausted, overwhelmed, and tired of feeling anxious and on edge all the time. You've thought about calling a therapist, but you're worried that no one can understand what you're feeling or what you've been though. You think you should be able to handle it all on your own, but things aren't getting better. Deep down, you know that it is time to ask for help. Even if you've felt this way for a very long time, it is possible to feel better... You don't have to do this alone.

My Background and Approach

After experiencing traumatic events, you want to push away the memories and "move forward". Using Cognitive Behavioral approaches, it is possible to heal from the past so you can build a stronger future. For the past 10 years, I have specialized in helping individuals and couples heal from trauma/PTSD. I approach therapy with warmth and curiosity, as these experiences are deeply personal and often result in feelings of anxiety, fear, same, and guilt. In therapy, I will provide a calm and accepting space for you to discuss your experience, and I will guide you step by step as you learn new skills to start making sense of what happened and start re-building the future you want to have. Clients often tell me that they appreciate my honest and no-nonsense style, and they are relieved that we can find moments of laughter even when working on difficult topics. It doesn't matter how old you are or how long ago your trauma occurred, is possible to heal from anxiety, trauma, and PTSD.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all have the potential for learning and growing, so we can heal from the past and make our lives and relationships even more meaningful. I am passionate about helping Veterans/first responders, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and I have been honored to walk with the Dept of Veterans Affairs in several local Pride Parades! I also believe that communication is one of the most important skills that we never learn in school! I am also passionate about helping individuals and couples learn how to improve their communication and emotional connection with one another, as this allows us to deepen our connections with meaningful relationships. Finding a therapist that is the right "fit" is an important part of the process. If you have any questions about my therapeutic style and/or practice, please do not hesitate to contact me for a free consultation to discuss your needs and concerns.
