About My Clients

My clients are often facing the painful aftermath of infidelity or other types of intimate betrayal and trying to pick up the pieces of their life. You may feel overwhelmed with emotions, struggle with obsessive thoughts, feel physically ill with stress, or may feel completely alone and unsure of what to do next. I can help you feel relief from trauma, learn strategies to work through the pain, silence the inner voice telling you that you're not good enough and achieve a deep sense of healing.

My Background and Approach

As a trauma specialist with expertise in intimate betrayal and infidelity, I have been helping individuals for over 10 years heal from the devastating aftermath of sexual betrayal, infidelity, emotional affairs, and other forms of intimate betrayal. I have received extensive training in trauma and sexual betrayal, and I am a SASH Certified Sexual and Relational Trauma Therapist (CSRTT), an APSATS Certified Clinical Partners Specialist (CCPS), and an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST). I use trauma-informed empirically based techniques for effective and lasting change. I also incorporate mindfulness strategies for mind-body reconnection after trauma and integrate strategies for sexual wellness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am incredibly passionate about my work and believe that each person is worthy and deserving of healing. I believe there is great value in taking the time to learn about each client's struggles and worries. I listen and reflect in a way that fosters greater understanding of my client's emotional experiences and I get to know the burdens they are carrying on a deeper level. My clients often report that they feel truly seen, heard, and validated. I tailor care to each client's unique needs, and I believe a collaborative approach to therapy works best. I would love to hear your story and help you reach your therapeutic goals.
