My Approach to Helping

Untangling trauma is not easy. Trauma not only affects the mind but also affects the body. Our nervous system is very powerful. It allows us to feel positive things like intimacy and safety but it has also developed mechanisms to protect us from danger. These mechanisms include the sympathetic nervous system, which controls our “fight or flight” response, and the parasympathetic nervous system, which causes us to shut down and conserve energy. Trauma, either from a single event or a pattern of abuse causes these systems to malfunction, which can lead to somatic symptoms that can profoundly affect a person's life.
My passion is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic or stressful experience. I help my clients to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole, and safe people.
