Psychotherapy Practice


I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in working  with people who have experience trauma in their lives or who work with  people who have experienced trauma . Trauma can have a profound impact  on our mental health, health, relationships and every day functioning,  but it can be treated.

Issues  like depression, anxiety and PTSD can all be rooted in our traumatic  experiences and lead to negative thoughts, beliefs, behaviors and coping  mechanisms. I create a safe, supportive space for you to look at the  challenges you are facing and build on your strengths and  resiliencies. I  work in a control mastery and relational framework to  understand how current, past  or secondary trauma is in the way of your  plan for a happy and healthy life and assist you becoming your best  self.
