Come Sit And Talk With Me

Life can present a lot of bumps that prevent you from being the fully functional self you have within you. I have been a student of the human condition from a very young age and specialize in using methods that efficiently help you access your best self.

TRAUMA, PTSI (what used to be called PTSD is now PTSI, Post Traumatic Stress Injury)
Are you having complications in your life due to stress, PTSI, developmental trauma or grief? My training in Brainspotting (Certified Practitioner), many years of experience in crisis and grief therapy, psycho-neurology, IFS and attachment work can help you gain your natural personality, inspiration and energy back as well as improve relationships with those around you. Trauma resulting from childhood abuse, life threatening situations of any kind or even if you are not sure your situation qualifies as PTSI. Unprocessed trauma causes many symptoms.
