**Not accepting new clients**
Many of us find ourselves living in chronic distress with no known way of moving forward. As a complex trauma survivor, I know how to meet you, and your loved ones, in the pain that you are experiencing,
and I am here to tell you, with confidence, that is backed up by neuroscience, that the human capacity for healing is greater than the effects of traumatic stress symptoms.
I am available to provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples, families, and groups. My approach to therapy is non-pathological, client-centered, holistic, and attachment-focused. I eclectically blend
somatic techniques with creative expression, mindfulness, psychodrama, and parts work to journey through the undertaking of trauma processing and assist my clients in creating healthier, more
sustainable relationships with themselves, their loved ones, and their environments.
I am completing my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy with a specialization in systemic trauma therapy from NU, and am also a student in the traumatic stress studies program at the Trauma
Research Foundation. I have received training in a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as polyvagal-informed therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), attachment-based family therapy (ABFT), as well as attachment, regulation, and competency (ARC), and components-based psychotherapy (CBP).
I have a keen interest in serving survivors of abuse, high-risk expecting
mothers, low-income families, couples experiencing intimacy complications, as well as LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and neurodivergent individuals. Unlike the saying, “time heals all wounds,” relational wounding, in fact, does not resolve with time. Like bubblegum that sticks to your favorite pair of shoes, staggering stress burrows its frozen energy inside of our bodies until we slowly, intentionally, and gently, remove its stickiness. Gradually, we can learn to walk again without feeling glued to the floor.
If you or your loved ones have been impacted by overwhelming life events, then know that change is possible and that my open hand is here whenever you are ready to reach out.
