My Approach to Helping
At its core, trauma is a violation of the soul. It fragments our sense of self, depleting our capacity for vitality, trust, and authentic connection. Untreated, its long-term symptoms can include anxiety, depression, shame, poor self-esteem, emotional overwhelm, disconnection, mistrust, neediness, people-pleasing, perfectionism, and more. And these patterns keep repeating until we're able to release the trauma, reconnect with our true selves, and stitch back together the violated soul.
Trauma doesn't have to be a life sentence. I understand my job as a therapist as a sort of midwife for the pain that needs to be fully birthed and released -- and then as a support for helping you make your life vibrant and whole again.
