Licensed Professional Counselor
MA, MS, LPC, NCC
I am a certified trauma professional, primarily supporting individuals with dissociation/DID and/or complex PTSD. Optional: Assessment-only.
Provides free initial consultation
Provides telehealth services
Practicing Since: 2014
The populations I am most experienced in supporting are adolescents and adults who are struggling with a high level of posttraumatic stress, dissociation, adjusting to transitions in life, and/or depression. If you are someone who continues to have a hard time with painful past events interrupting your life and holding you back, I believe we could be a good fit as partners moving toward your increased wellness together. Options: ongoing therapy or assessment-only for dissociative disorders.
"Dissociative disorders" is a broad category of experiences related to common long-term effects of trauma on a person's daily life. This can include the varied degrees of dissociation (i.e., zoning or spacing out, losing time, memory problems) we all experience on a regular basis to a level of dissociation that can be described as dissociative identity, amnesia, fugue, parts, depersonalization, and derealization. I can provide ongoing therapy or assessment-only for dissociative disorders.
"Trauma" is a general term that includes any past painful, distressing, or terrifying event that continues to have a negative impact on your life. Anyone can experience different levels of emotional stress and interruptions in everyday tasks as a result of past painful events. This typically involves nightmares, flashbacks, being easily startled, negative beliefs about self or the world, difficulty feeling positive emotions, and avoiding reminders of the painful events.
