My Approach to Helping
Many individuals experience overwhelming symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I specialize in complex PTSD which occurs often in high intensity and hurtful relationships. I can help you and your family overcome those symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing in all stages of life.
My job is to help individuals and families heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a nurturing safe space, listening to your concerns and customizing a treatment plan. My primary focus is your recovery and meeting your goals for optimal healing and life functioning. Through holistic integrative therapy you will take back control of your life, strengthen your personal skills for emotional regulation and distress tolerance and have live a happier and healthier life.
