Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections. Unknown

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Trauma recovery is a difficult process, however it  becomes more manageable along the way.   Trauma often leaves you in a state of panic, depression, hopelessness, anxiety, or fear. These are normal responses to  stressful events that often leads to feeling helpless.

I work with adults and adolescents who have suffered childhood sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse.  I will help you work through and process the feelings and emotions that traumatic events cause such as  depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, and anger.  Trauma therapy requires weekly appointments for at least the first 6 months of treatment. This is because it's necessary to meet at least weekly to process the trauma.
Remember you're  not alone in your experience.  I will help you to  process these abusive experiences, and we will identify  any fragmented parts of yourself that exist as coping mechanisms to deal with trauma.  You will be able to heal and lead a fulfilling life.
