This is an interesting time to be a trauma therapist. On the one hand, the world is an especially difficult place right now, and you might feel overwhelmed by your trauma. On the other, you might not have the emotional energy to do any depth work in the midst of a pandemic, wildfires, and social injustice. That is okay. I will follow your lead and go at your pace. We do not need to open up any old wounds while we tend to the fresh ones. When you are ready, we can work on processing the past trauma that tends to follow you around, disrupts your emotional balance, and affects your relationships.

I typically practice therapy using a blend of talk therapy and gentle, body-focused trauma therapies, such as EMDR, the Flash Technique, and Lifespan Integration. More than any theory or technique, the counseling relationship should always come first. I strive to offer a collaborative, person-centered, and strengths-based approach to counseling.

With COVID-19, we are more socially isolated than ever. This might be one of the hardest times to seek out a therapist, while also the most important. I offer a free 30-minute video consultation (or phone or email if you prefer) to see if we would be a good fit. Feel free to reach out when you are ready.
