You feel like you and your partner are disconnected from each other with trauma, family, past relationships, communication breakdowns, and/or misunderstandings filling the space between you. You have become so lost in your disconnection that you are struggling to find a way back to the relationship. You want to be able to re-connect on a deeper, more intimate level and help silence the ghosts from the past that continue to separate you. You want to be able to feel love and trust again.
I have extensive training and experience in working with historic and complex trauma through my time providing mental health services for NARA, NW and Wolf Pack Consulting and Therapeutic Services. As a relationship therapist, I understand how impactful historical trauma can be on a relationship system.
During graduate school, I interned at TransActive Gender Center, providing mental health services for transgender/gender non-binary youth, adolescents, and their families. I continue to provide affirmative care for the community and their families.
I have worked with relationships for most of my career and am passionate about the work. I focus on increasing awareness for interactional patterns, power dynamics, impact of trauma, attachment issues, and improved communication.
The majority of my professional life has been spent working with and developing a trauma-informed and guided approach to therapy. I have been providing mental health services for individuals and couples impacted by trauma and PTSD. In May 2019, I co-facilitated a workshop demonstrating differing interventions for how clinicians can work with relationships that are impacted by trauma.
