Trauma

Trauma

Experiencing a traumatic event(s) can be devastating and negatively impact multiple areas of our lives, including our emotional, physical, interpersonal, cognitive, spiritual, and financial well-being. I provide a warm and trusting environment wherein survivors can feel safe to discuss and process past and/or current trauma and work towards healing and recovery by regaining their sense of control, safety, identity, engagement in life, resilience, and empowerment.

I have specialized in providing trauma-informed and evidence-based psychotherapy to survivors since the beginning of my clinical career. I have a particular interest, and over ten years of experience, working with survivors of sexual violence and interpersonal violence. Through the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, as well as other clinical settings, I received training working with Veterans with complex presenting concerns. My experience working with other various forms of trauma includes: emotional abuse, physical abuse, childhood abuse, military-related trauma, racial and cultural trauma, family and intergenerational trauma, asylum seekers and refugees, and loss.
