Having experienced several traumatic events throughout my life and having watched family and friends experience trauma, I have learned what trauma can do to our minds and bodies. I have worked with many adolescents and adults who have experienced trauma and I have completed clinical trauma certification programs.
Having left an abusive marriage, I understand the pain that domestic abuse can cause. Domestic abuse can be physically & psychologically damaging as well as traumatizing.
Being a divorced individual, I understand the pain and the loss a divorce causes. It's a difficult experience to process as you're grieving the loss of a marriage while trying to re gain a sense of self and find a new direction in life.
I have had family and friends who have experienced suicidal ideation and self harm. This has inspired me to help others. I have worked with several adults and teenagers who have experienced suicidal ideation and have found CBT and DBT to be effective types of treatment.
I have experienced anxiety myself over the years and I have worked with numerous teenagers and adults who have struggled with different kinds of anxiety. I help clients identify the cause(s) of the anxiety and use different approaches when working with them to form a treatment plan.
