Whether you experienced prolonged abuse and neglect in childhood, survived an abusive relationship, or have experienced an acute traumatic event, I am here for you. Trauma affects the development of the brain and is stored in the body. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger and affect your life and especially your relationships. You may be confused about some of the ways that you move through the world. Together we can explore how your trauma uniquely affects you.
Are you mired in hopelessness? Do you feel hollow, like there is no light at the end of the tunnel? Do you struggle just to get out of bed? Depression is a heavy burden to bear, a struggle you shouldn't have to face alone. Through counseling and treatment, you can recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. You can discover ways to regulate your emotions, learn skills to help you cope, and develop meaningful relationships. There is hope.
In a supportive therapeutic setting, I help people safely process emotions and experiences and learn practical, strengths-based coping strategies and techniques for symptom management /reduction. I use evidence-based therapies to assist in identifying self-limiting core beliefs and behavioral patterns that may be keeping you feeling stuck, frustrated, and unsettled.
