You have been living on the sidelines for way too long.
On the outside you may look just like anyone else, but on the inside you feel different.
What's different about you is what you've been through. That's all.
When you look out at the world around you, and it feels like a different reality than the world you live in. Your world is a world that feels dark. You gasp for air every morning just to feel like you're drowning. You have moments of peace, but they are just moments.
And then you're reminded of who you are and what your life has been made up of. To you it feels like a compilation of rubble, hurt, sadness and disappointments. You numb with avoiding others, hiding out in bed, drinking too much wine and watching too much TV. What ever happened to a sense of meaning, a sense of purpose, direction or fulfillment?
Love, joy and ease..those words seem foreign to you because you've been through the toughest experiences people can go through.
Your life experiences include events and circumstances which no one talks about because they bring fear, doubt and confusion. But these stories are what your life has been built upon. You're wanting to move on. but moving on is an oversimplification of what it means to move on after abuse, trauma, loss or a violation.
Healing doesn't happen overnight. You need to cry and mourn AND have a place to develop into a new story with less pain and trauma.
I help people who have missed out in life because of the all of the circumstances they have been through. My clients often are longing to find comfort yet find themselves disappointed in their relationships as the stuff they have been through is something no one talks about.
In our time together, you will discover there isn’t anything too scary or terrible that can’t be shared. You will learn how to live a good life, without being dragged down by memories of the pasts, fears and terror.
If you are wanting to overcome the adversity and pain of the past, it’s time to feel hope and to get the help you need to create a beautiful life.

Why trauma therapy?
You want to learn the A-B-C's of healing so you can move forward at a pace that feels right for you.
In trauma therapy you will :
- Receive a comprehensive understanding of trauma, identify the traumas you've experienced, the affects they've had on your life as well as the defenses you've learned to use.
- Use research based assessments that identify symptoms and track your progress.
- Learn skills that help your nervous system return to a healthy baseline of inner calm and re-gain inner strength.
- Learn to trust yourself, others and gain confidence in the world again.
- Utilize trauma narrative, expressive arts, EMDR, mindfulness and somatic modalities to process trauma and release symptoms.
We can't erase the scars, but we can heal the hurt.
Life after trauma exists, let's teach you how.
