The decision to engage in therapy is highly personal, even if you have been in counseling before. It is critically important to find the "right" therapist for you. I offer free 15 min phone consultations to help decide if you want to take that first step into therapy with me. And throughout our work I'll be checking in with you to ensure that our work feels meaningful, productive, and that you feel safe.
Therapy can not only help you realize that you are not alone, but also provides valuable tools that puts you on the path of healing; it takes courage and I will be here to support you through the journey.
Trauma does not discriminate and does not occur in a vacuum. It can happen to anyone no matter their circumstances and within a broader socio-political context. Fortunately, there are also treatments that can help. In my 20 years of experience, I have born witness to the incredible resilience of individuals who have experienced trauma and firmly believe that recovery is possible.
The Japanese art of Kintsukuroi takes pottery that has been broken and repairs with precious metals. The result transforms the objects beyond their original design and purpose into art; both strengthened and made more beautiful by the parts that were broken. The breaks are not something to be hidden or avoided, but rather become part of the object's history. I approach treatment in the same way - we can never erase or forget our experiences, but they can transform us into stronger, more resilient individuals.
