Counseling for Trauma

I specialize in treating PTSD, trauma and complex trauma. You may have experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse over time as a child or an adult, or have experienced a one time traumatic event or loss. Either way, we know that when one experiences trauma, no matter how large or small, it can leave a profound impact on their lives; the memories stay trapped in their minds and bodies. These unconsolidated memories can cause many issues for us including reliving the memories, experiencing flashbacks, somatic symptoms, depression and anxious thoughts to name a few. 

Trauma treatment engages our emotions and what we are feeling in our bodies in order to reprocess the traumatic memories. As a trauma therapist, I guide my clients through this process while providing a safe, calm space for them to heal. If you have experienced trauma there is hope for you and your future. People are resilient, and can become empowered and ready to take on whatever life has in store.

Methods Utilized 


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy treats trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders among other things. EMDR is an extensively researched psychotherapy and is an effective trauma treatment. EMDR has proven to help people recover and heal by resolving unprocessed memories in the brain.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a therapeutic modality that treats trauma and attachment issues. SP sees the body as an important source of information which can allow for processing challenging, traumatic, and developmental experiences. SP includes somatic, emotional, and cognitive processing and integration.

CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is an intervention that focuses on questioning and changing habitual ways of thinking that are often incorrect and negatively biased.  The result improves emotional regulation and allows for the development of personal coping skills so that one can face life’s challenges.

Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness based practices teach one to be present in the moment and to separate themselves from negative thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations that may be present, often before they become too overwhelming.
