As co-owner of Journey to a Trauma Informed Life, I am committed to providing a welcoming environment for every client we work with. As a group, we specialize in working with children and adults from a trauma-informed perspective, whether you work with me directly, another co-owner (Tyler Titus and Rachel Anysz) or one of our member therapists. I am skilled in helping people resolve past traumatic events which are interfering with their ability to function from day to day. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and trained in Trauma-Focused CBT. I also love working with people from the LGBTQ+ community. My specialty is simply taking a client-centered approach to my work. I am a trauma-informed, mindfulness-based therapist that brings a decade of experience and a variety of approaches including Play Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Structural Therapy, and Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I take a collaborative approach when working with my clients - either one-on-one, as a couple, or as a family group. Instead of asking "What's wrong with you?" I start with "What happened, or is happening now, that helps make sense out of this frustrating behavior or feeling?"
