Helping women find meaning and joy in life again.

Life comes with a lot of constant worries and concerns. Most women who start trauma therapy feel stuck with the same painful patterns on repeat. You can relate. Maybe you check things off your “to do” list but you don’t feel like you’re getting anything done. You’d be happier if you made changes but it somehow feels safer and more comfortable to stay the same.

Stuck in feeling worried all the time, you may feel like life is overwhelming, like it’s too much.

Your energy levels are at an all time low and you feel lonely, even when others are around because they just don’t get it. You’ve lost the joy you once had in life and have an insane schedule that just doesn’t let you rest. Sometimes staying busy feels like it helps. You may even think, “at least I don’t have the energy to think about what I’ve been through.”

Memories from the past have been showing up more often and they won’t let up.

I want you to know that even if you’re struggling, nothing is wrong with you. What you’re experiencing is natural and it’s okay to ask for help. Even if you don’t believe you deserve care, you do. You deserve to take care of yourself.

Trauma Therapy Can Help You Get Your Life Back

It’s possible to feel better. Imagine a life where you could…

  • Feel joy again.
  • Stop worrying all the time.
  • Shift into a more positive and hopeful outlook on life.
  • Stop letting anxiety affect the way you live or make decisions for you.
  • Change your life for the better in ways that stick.
  • Free yourself from the pain of the past.

Trauma therapy will help you rise above challenges and start moving toward your ideal life with less stress and more calm.

You’ll gain the practical tools you need to lower your overall anxiety in life and finally resolve issues from the past.

Even if you’re not usually comfortable opening up to people, trauma therapy can still help because we’ll go at a pace that feels best for you.

I’ve helped women struggling with effects of past trauma and difficult life experiences find their way to feeling more calm, peace, and hope. My clients discover it’s possible to live life in the present and not constantly relive the past or repeat the same cycles over and over again.

How Trauma Therapy Works

I’ll guide you towards solutions and share what the science tells us about what’s going on for you. I play an active role. In addition, I’m a trained EMDR therapist. EMDR is a proven therapy that helps women heal from past trauma and many other concerns.

Research shows trauma therapy can positively change your thinking, beliefs, emotions, response to activating situations/triggers, and behaviors. It can help you let go of what’s holding you back.

Common Signs of Trauma

The trauma you’ve been through may have happened recently or a long time ago. It’s not uncommon for individuals to experience symptoms long after the trauma happened.

  • Anxiety
  • Recurrent, intrusive memories about what happened that come out of the blue
  • Sadness, sorrow
  • Being on high-alert or startling easily
  • Upsetting dreams or nightmares about what happened or similar content to what happened to you
  • Attempts to avoid talking or thinking about what happened
  • Difficulty remembering parts of what happened
  • Overwhelming guilt and/or shame
  • Difficulty fully trusting others

Trauma therapy can help you feel like a weight has been lifted.

What if you could experience changes that are sustainable?

You want to feel confident, gain back your energy and motivation, not feel like you’re somehow failing, and not feel burdensome. Trauma therapy can free you from the past and free up the emotional space you need to feel better in your day-to-day.

You want to feel like yourself again.

Trauma therapy can help you feel lighter and get to the root of what’s going on instead of using temporary band-aids. You can look forward to each day with renewed energy and purpose and put boundaries in place that don’t feel confrontational.

You’re ready to prioritize your needs without feeling selfish, heal from the past in ways that will allow you to believe you’re good enough, and accept yourself as you are without apology.
