My Approach to Helping
Growing up is hard. In addition to the normal challenges of school, social issues, development and family conflict, traumatic experiences can make these already difficult times feel impossible to get through. At times you may wonder why it is so difficult to get through your day, why you don’t feel “normal” or why your peers don’t face the same challenges as you. By being trauma informed and trained in trauma specific treatment, I provide a safe and warm environment for my clients which allows them to feel validated and understood as they go through the healing process related to their trauma.
Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in a child and family community mental health agency where trauma responses and post-traumatic stress were common presenting issues for my clients. I have continued to work with trauma in private practice in addition to depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicidal ideations that are often correlated with trauma.
If you are seeking relief from trauma symptoms, clarity on why life seems so difficult, or are ready to process and heal from your traumatic event(s), please reach out to me for a free 15-20 minute consultation to determine if we would be a good match for each other. I look forward to working with you to heal and live a more fulfilling life.
