Practice Information
I work with a variety of psychological issues and concerns. I specialize in working with trauma, PTSD and LGBT issues.
I offer caring, respectful, and compassionate counseling to help in the healing process from a traumatic experience. Trauma can result from childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, military/war, witness to violence, car accidents etc. Whether the trauma is from early childhood or more recent, I provide a safe place to heal from the traumatic events. I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma. My style is holistic, interactive, and collaborative. I would be honored to assist you in working through and healing from your traumatic events. I also work with LGBT clients who may be struggling with the coming out process.
