I work collaboratively with my clients and their families to create an individualized plan for treatment, pairing my areas of focus and expertise with the needs and goals of the individual/family. Together we work to identify the root causes of symptoms and work to heal the trauma that may be resulting in physical, mental or emotional distress.
Frequently Addressed Concerns
Grief & Loss
Adoption/foster care related trauma
Dissociation across the lifespan
Symptoms of trauma including but not limited to depression, anxiety, mood swings, intense anger, dysregulation, other factors interfering with daily functioning
Everyone deserves a safe space to address their inner thoughts and feelings. I strive to provide a therapeutic environment that promotes acceptance, understanding and growth and will work collaboratively with you/your family to achieve goals.
Trauma Informed Treatment
Trying to overcome different degrees of trauma can be a challenge, especially without appropriate support. Trauma informed treatment can be an effective way to work toward creating the life that you envision through healing the root causes of present day symptoms. My goal as a trauma therapist is to help my clients acknowledge, understand and process difficult events in order to lead a more balanced life.
Children learn about themselves, others and the world around them through play, that is their primary language. Play therapy is an evidenced based practice that allows a way into the inner world of the child so that meaningful shifts and progress can be made. Play therapy can assist with issues children experience including behavioral/emotional outbursts, self esteem, aggression, anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment struggles, life transitions, and more.
