Working through the devastating effects of many types of trauma can feel very frightening and overwhelming.  You are not alone!  As a trauma therapist, I am passionate about helping clients navigate through the confusing, painful and difficult thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that trauma leaves behind.  I make it my mission to help normalize symptoms and incorporate information on the role of the brain in trauma and how these trauma experiences play an integral role in how we perceived life’s experiences.  While the experience itself causes confusion and pain, it is the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that we perceive as a result of the trauma that draws us to beliefs about ourselves that are not true.  Beliefs such as “It’s my fault”, “I’m not good enough”, and “There is something wrong with me”, amongst others.  As a therapist, I cannot talk you out of these beliefs, but I can join you in exploring and discovering how these beliefs are negatively affecting your life today.  I am committed to holding space that is safe, confidential and encouraging so that you can work through the painful places in your heart and ultimately find peace and rest.

I am also certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) a powerful tool to help reintegrate memories which once held painful identity beliefs in place. EMDR is an evidence-based intervention used to access and process traumatic memories and other adverse life experiences to bring these to an adaptive resolution.  The theory behind EMDR is that traumatic memories make changes to the brain.  These changes stop the mind from processing information properly, which causes anxiety and intrusive thoughts.  Experts believe that remembering the traumatic event while using EMDR allows the brain to process these memories correctly and integrate them into the story of the person’s life.  My role as an EMDR certified therapist is to provide comfort and support as the client navigates through his/her traumatic memories.
