My Approach to Helping

I specialize in helping people overcome hurts caused by emotional abuse, including narcissistic abuse, along with all types of interpersonal violence. If you struggle with addictions, anxiety, depression, and ongoing relationship struggles, it is important to find a kind and compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you recover. Whether your issues involve PTSD, complex PTSD, codependent-type relationships, relationships with personality disordered individuals, or addicts, you need help to overcome the cognitive dissonance, conditioning, and trauma that results from your involvement with these types of difficult interactions.

If you feel trapped and hopeless because of a difficult relationship or addiction problem; or if you deal with a childhood abuse or mental illness, I would love to come alongside you and help empower you to find hope, encouragement, and solutions for your challenges.

As a counselor, I believe that permanent healing from trauma requires two conditions: (1) that we experience fully and consciously our deepest emotions; and (2) that we do so in a context of safety and empathic connection.
I am committed to helping you heal from your deepest emotional wounds caused by trauma, abuse and addiction.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

It is important to choose a therapist who has empathy and compassion; a therapist who is able to "see" you and care about you as an individual. The most effective therapy occurs within the therapeutic relationship. No matter what you have been through, you are the expert on your life. It is healing to have someone come alongside you and help empower you to trust and love yourself; someone to provide the therapeutic tools and also a real person to help you "work through your stuff" in a safe place.
