Therapy for Trauma

Many people come to therapy for help with a traumatic event or relationship from the past. Each person uniquely experiences trauma. Abuse of all kinds, illness, war and violence, and sexual and physical harm are just some of many examples. Trauma can leave a deep imprint on your emotional and psychological well-being. If you’re struggling with the effects of trauma, I can help you process and heal from your experiences. I create a safe place where you can feel strong, competent, and empowered.

My work with you is designed to help you understand the symptoms of anxiety and how to manage them so that you can live your life to the fullest. What does that mean? It means you can be empowered to stop obsessive, negative thinking. It means you can work on overcoming social anxiety.  My approach is tailored to your specific needs, helping you to develop new coping mechanisms and reduce the impact that anxiety has on your daily life. I am here to help you find the best path forward.

Depression and Mood Disorders

Sometimes, sadness is more than just sadness.

Depression is a mood disorder in which someone experiences such low moods that it interferes with their daily life. The condition not only affects a patient’s moods, but a person with depression may also think and act differently than they used to.

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder, is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States.  

If you find yourself wondering if you might have a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder, reach out to my office. I can help you navigate the challenges and find the support you need.

Grief and Loss

The pain of losing someone you love can leave you feeling lost and wondering if you'll ever be the same again. As a clinical social worker,  I provide a supportive and empathetic approach to helping you through this challenging time. Together, we will work towards healing and finding new ways to move forward.

Loss doesn't always have to be about losing a loved one. People often come for help after the loss of a beloved animal or even the loss of an important job, losing a family home, or a life-changing illness. 

Chronic Illness
Invisible Illness

From the moment you notice that your body isn't working like it used to, to diagnosis, through treatments and flares, having a chronic illness is life-changing. 

You may have to work less. You don't have the energy you once had. Perhaps you've had doctors dismiss your symptoms, or family members who just don't get it, and who criticize you when you use a mobility device because 'you don't look that sick.' It feels like life is going on around you and you may feel like a spectator. 

Many chronic illnesses are also invisible illnesses, meaning you can look great on the outside but inside? You're a mess. Your joints hurt all the time, your pain levels go from tolerable to excruciating. You feel alone. You feel misunderstood. You grieve for the old you, back when you weren't always in pain, where you could walk for miles. 

This is where therapy can help. I've lived with a chronic illness most of my adult life. The sadness? The relentless pain? The judgmental looks because you don't look sick? I've been there. There may be times you have to cancel because you can't get out of bed, or your doctor's appointment runs long. I get it. Please don't walk through this alone. Message me and we can talk more about how I can help.
