“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom” – Viktor Frankl

The complexity of our human brain causes us to misunderstand why we do what we do. There’s a rapid connection between our emotional mind and our logical mind, an interplay and exchange of data and information that causes us to act in certain ways and those behaviors create outcomes. As a trauma-informed therapist, I am aware than many people don’t understand the relationship between their thoughts, emotions, actions, and outcomes. People can become stuck in their heads or in their emotions and then get caught up in behaviors that don’t serve the purpose of creating a happy, fulfilling, and joyful life anymore.

We must learn what happens to us inside when life happens to us on the outside. We must understand where the messages on tapes we play in our head come from and how we can unlearn those old and often wrong messages and hear our own voices. All people need healing, but in order to heal, you need to talk about what hurts.

I do this work because trauma that isn’t transformed, is transferred. We can work together to ensure that your own painful experiences and suffering aren’t passed to those around you.

I am here to listen, to motive, to inspire and to educate you on how to live your best life.
