Psychotherapy for Individuals
I provide somatic trauma-informed telehealth therapy to individual teens and adults in the States of California and Oregon who need support to regain control over their lives after adverse life events.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a diagnosis that includes clusters of symptoms following a threatening event: intrusions, avoidance, changes in nervous system arousal, pronounced shifts in mood or thinking, and oftentimes dissociation.
Survivors of sexual abuse or assault can experience symptoms of posttraumatic stress, including hypervigilance, numbing, self-doubt, nightmares, flashbacks, memory gaps, and more.
CPTSD describes cumulative, ongoing traumas that oftentimes occur during childhood and in a relational context. There is not a single triggering event, but instead is the result of multiple traumatic experiences.
Dissociation means something different to each person. When something becomes overwhelming, the brain can disconnect, or separate, from what is happening in its intelligent effort to survive.
“The best way out, is always through.”
I help people who are ready to take the courageous, first steps towards
healing from trauma so that they can live more fully and peacefully
in the present moment.
Do you feel like you are struggling and that despite having survived much hardship, life is hard?
You may benefit from therapy if you can't find relief from your past, have nightmares or flashbacks, find it hard to concentrate, don't trust others (or yourself), and feel lost.
You are guarded and feel alone, powerless, depressed, and stuck.
Sometimes you turn to desperate ways of coping to escape your pain.
You feel like your life is forever changed and derailed.
Trauma gets in the way of the life you want in so many ways:
it can affect and disrupt all aspects of life - relationships, memory, nervous system, sleep, work, and more.
If you would like a partner in your healing journey to resolve overwhelming
feelings, thoughts, sensations, or memories stemming from painful events,
I am here to help.
You have a right to a life where you are not suffering due to your past and what was out of your control. Being able to go through your day without being overtaken by your triggers is within your reach.
It is important for you to find a therapist who you connect with.
Reach out to me to see if we would be a good fit to work together.
You deserve to have support through this, and are not alone.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing fractures in pottery with lacquer powdered with gold.
This practice symbolizes the philosophy that trauma does not lead to breakage, but instead results in the
transformative power of healing:
scars are part of the history and
beautify the object.
