Traumatic events and memories are known to be the cause of emotional distress thereby negatively impacting lives, families, and the ability to function in society. I am committed to initiating healing and alleviating distress by helping individuals process trauma or the painful memories associated with the traumatic experience.
Throughout my career I have worked with adults and children who have been exposed to harmful circumstances or traumatic events caused by incarceration, substance abuse, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, domestic violence, victimization of violent crimes, disasters, caregiver neglect, adoption and foster care, and mental health issues,
My goal in providing trauma-informed counseling is to help individuals learn more about trauma and its effects on the body, identify triggers, and gain healthy coping skills to decrease negative emotional responses.
