My Ideal Client

Redemptive Trauma Recovery is your road to a fresh start to deeper understanding, solid connection, and a healthy mindset after experiencing many of life's disappointments, neglect and harm.

My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy is rooted in the knowledge of relational neuroscience. What we've learned about the science of the body's responses to world around us informs us in the therapeutic room. When we combine this knowledge with the healing power of healthy relationships we find that people recover from even the most intense stories of harm. I'll guide you through the process of truly knowing your story in uncovering what's worked for you and what has hindered you from feeling balanced and successful in your life. We'll work together to discover who you are beneath all the stress and chaos you've endured.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Leading people through the process of recovering from their stories of trauma is my life's work. I know the amount of courage it takes to face the hardest parts of our stories not knowing whether it's going to be worth the effort and discomfort it takes to work through to the other side. I've walked this path with many people and I'll trust the process for you until you can trust it within yourself. I have trained extensively to understand the long term effects of childhood adversities and traumas including domestic abuse, neglect, sexual traumas, and betrayal traumas such as infidelities. There is hope for life to feel different and I'm here to help you find it. With a masters in clinical counseling from Western Seminary, I am a nationally certified counselor and am in process of licensure in two states. I'm under the supervision of Lori Whittaker, as well as training under master therapist Byron Kehlor in the art of Story Informed Trauma Therapy.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Domestic Abuse External link

    Domestic abuse is a relational pattern of emotional and psychological harm in intimate relationships. It can leave behind deep wounds that most people don't see, although the impact of these experiences are evident in the painful memories, anxiety, depression, and self-loathing of the person who was harmed.

  • Divorce External link

    Divorce isn't something that just happens, it's an outcome of deep dysfunction within a marriage. Marriages end for many reasons: betrayal, emotional and physical danger, infidelity, manipulation... They're often necessary in order for the individual parties to have a chance to rebuild health within themselves that was impossible within the marriage.

  • Sexual Abuse External link

    Sexual abuse is unwanted sexual behavior between a person who holds more power than another person and forces them into sexual acts using threats of violence, using force and/or taking advantage of a vulnerability. Power can be described as authority, age, status, intelligence, etc.

  • Codependency External link

    Codependency is most easily identified in this way: one person carrying the majority of the weight and responsibility of the relationship in order to meet a deep need of approval and acceptance. It often leaves people feeling overwhelmed and undervalued.
