Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MA, LICSW, LCSW
I collaborate with clients to overcome the disabling symptoms and behavior patterns caused by trauma and to reclaim a sense of safety, security, self-worth and serenity. Together we work through the issues causing deep pain and holding you back from a healthy, happy, hopeful life. Trauma survivors often have symptoms - depression, irritability, insomnia, mistrust, chronic pain, self-destructive behavior, loss of sense of self - rather than memories. For the person suffering from trauma, just being is an act of bravery. Working toward healing is a courageous step.
I support you in the healing journey, working as a partner offering respect, information, connection, and a more positive future. Using a variety of therapeutic approaches, I help clients stop reliving a painful past. Together, we develop ways of managing emotions and behaviors, releasing shame, self-blame, and the inner critic.
Clients experience life-changing positive results, reclaiming a sense of self-worth, overcoming relational chaos, and regaining belief in a hopeful future. I bring a sense of unconditional positive regard and radical acceptance, facilitating integration of your full self for a peaceful and meaningful life.
