My Approach to Helping
Childhood trauma disconnects us from the truth of who we are. We believe that somehow the hurt we experienced is our fault, we are not good enough, worthless, we don’t matter, or we should have tried harder, etc. Without healing, these beliefs follow us far into adulthood. We are left repeating dysfunctional family dynamics, coping in unhealthy and harmful ways, developing addictions, feeling depressed or anxious, and having difficulty in relationships. It all leads back to the most important relationship- the relationship we have with ourselves.
I specialize in helping adults heal from childhood trauma such issues related to having been adopted, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical abuse, grief-loss, and emotional abandonment. I've held both counseling and leadership positions at The Meadows in Wickenburg, AZ, a world-renowned treatment center for trauma & addiction.
You and I will work together as a team helping you to reconnect with the survivor within yourself, build upon strengths, heal your most vulnerable wounds, learn healthy coping skills, live in the present moment, and improve your relationships today. In doing this work, you’ll not only say the words “I am valuable” but you will believe it, own it, & live it.
