Trauma can be defined in many ways.  Sometimes trauma is overt such as past physical, sexual, verbal and/or emotional abuse.  Other times, it is covert and can look like growing up with neglect or living in a society where you don't feel safe due to your race, religion, class, gender, or sexual identity and orientation. No matter the trauma you have encountered, we will work together to decrease your symptoms and help you create a life that brings you joy and fulfillment.  I approach trauma through a somatic lens, paying attention to what your body is communicating to us, as well as through a narrative, internal family systems and existential lens; attending to how you interpreted the trauma, how this impacts how you relate to yourself and others as an adult, and what meaning is it creating in your life.
