The relationship that you can share with your therapist may be one of the greatest relationships you experience. This is your opportunity to create a space for yourself – one where you are accepted and not judged for being yourself. Trauma, especially sexual or birth trauma, is difficult to uncover and understand how it has impacted different parts of your life. Patients are encouraged to share and develop their trauma narratives over a period of time, which feels safer and decreases re-traumatization.
You deserve to love yourself and discover potential you didn’t know was there.
I like for patients to experience an expressive and relaxed therapeutic environment. Whether you are trying to discover yourself, receive support during a pregnancy, or process trauma – I am here with you. If you are looking for a genuine connection within therapy, you have to have the right fit – this could be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
I support a wide range of patient concerns, including mothers who are experiencing PMADS (perinatal mood and anxiety disorders), those who have experienced birth trauma or loss, and those looking for additional support during pregnancy.
A special interest area that I support is that of sexual traumas. Allowing others to rebuild and reclaim themselves and their narratives. Women’s issues include pelvic trauma, shame, low sense of self, reproductive issues/choices, sexuality, and gaining voice/communication/identity.
