Trauma Therapy

Online Therapy available anywhere in California

Here are a few examples of traumas I often treat:
  • Neglect by a primary care giver (lack of attention, food, time)

  • Physical abuse as a child or adult (domestic violence)
  • Emotional abuse as a child or adult
  • Self esteem + self-betrayal concerns 
  • Phobias

  • PTSD Symptoms

  • Performance Anxiety

  • Sexual assault, rape, molestation, incest
  • ​Bullying, prolonged or chronic rejection at home or by peers​

  • Survivor of family or friend suicide

  • Divorce, Infidelity

  • Death of a loved one

  • Abortion guilt, infertility, miscarriages

  • Witnessing Violence

Processing past traumas on our own can be painful and difficult for our mind, body, and heart. It affects every system in our body. With this in mind, I approach trauma from an informed, client-centered perspective. I attune to my client's social-emotional experience and weave in the latest treatments in neuropsychology.
Brainspotting Therapy
I include one of the most progressive and cutting-edge trauma therapies that works both very rapidly and effectively called Brainspotting. This phenomenal brain-based therapy accelerates emotional healing. The goal is to allow you to reprocess your trauma(s) so that you can be free from negative beliefs, physiological distress and psychological pain as quickly as possible.​
