Trauma Therapy & Healing

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.

While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or post-traumatic stress far after the event has passed.

Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of trauma treatment. As an AEDP Level II therapist, I am confident that I can work with you through your experiences to bring forth understanding, healing and wellness.
