Trauma-Informed Therapy
What if instead of “What is wrong with me?” the question became “What happened to me?
Shifting the question  allows for more compassion and understanding. It also takes into account context, recognizing that we are constantly adapting to the things around us and that how we manage feelings, form our thoughts and beliefs, and navigate relationships is a result of what we learned in the past and what we had to do to make it thorough.


It is the relationship with yourself that matters most

Life will always have its challenges and difficulties and no amount of therapy will change that.
However, if you understand how to mange your feelings and triggers, if you know yourself and feel confident in yourself, if you can seek your own voice and guidance, it can make the difference. Therapy can you help you build a positive relationship with yourself, so you can stay centered and weather the storms.


Therapy is not forever
While the length of time depends on what you would like to work on, this work is meant to be temporary and transitional. The goal of therapy is to ultimately help you feel empowered to move forward on your own.
