I specialize in working with people who have experienced adverse life events. Whether you’ve suffered abuse, neglect, relationship betrayals, domestic violence, rape, accidents, natural disasters, or other traumas, you need not suffer alone. I can help you regain your life and peace of mind. Even if you’ve tried therapy before and didn’t get the relief you hoped for, please don’t despair. This field is evolving rapidly and I am confident that I can help you find lasting relief. Don’t just tolerate the painful symptoms of PTSD, dissociation, anxiety, depression, and grief. It IS possible to heal even your deepest wounds.

In addition to helping people cope with trauma, I'm also experienced with performance enhancement. I can help you prepare for public speaking, athletics, and academic events (such as dissertation completion.) If you are a creative type, I enjoy helping people prepare for theatrical, vocal and instrumental performances as well as assisting writers facing the dreaded "writer's block" --

My approach is warm and caring.

I am deeply respectful of all spiritual paths.

I am GLBTQI supportive.

I have been a trauma specialist providing compassionate, comprehensive counseling services for adults, children, teens, couples, and families since 1990.

I provide consultation and training to other clinicians on trauma-focused care. I am a national trainer and consultant for the DNMS Institute and am a certified consultant, facilitator, and trainer for EMDR. 

If you are in an immediate crisis, please call 911 in the US and Canada, 999 in the UK, 000 In Australia or 112 in Europe.
