We’re not on our journey to save the world but to save ourselves. But in doing that you save the world.”   Joseph Campbell.

Do you wish you could leave the past in the past? Some days you feel numb? You know you over react sometimes, but don’t know why? You, avoid certain places, to prevent feeling distress.
You have recurring dreams, nightmares with the same themes that represent something terrible you experienced. You wish you could sleep again. You may have experienced sexual assault, abuse, car accident, ongoing childhood trauma, or have experienced operational stress injuries as a first responder. I work with youth, adults, couples and families.
After working with me you will feel, stable, confident to socialize again.
With the past in the past and more energy, you can focus on future goals. Sleep better, feel better about yourself, good boundaries, able to draw on skills to cope with distress and maintain happy relationships.
I am so excited about the latest research on how trauma creates predictable symptoms that can be treated, that I facilitate educational groups on PTSD, teach a course on it, and treat it. EMDR is endorsed by the world health authority as one of the top modalities for treating trauma.

 

People come to me to get relief from these symptoms as well as eliminate PTSD triggers.For some people the trauma has been more complicated and ongoing, either childhood trauma that is repeating in themes and relationships, or is work related. I also work with you to relieve childhood memories that are interfering with meeting your goals.
