As a Marital Family Therapist, I have been working with individuals and families who have experienced and/or witnessed abuse and violence in childhood and/or intimate partner relationships. Seeing clients in both private clinical settings and in community based work, as well as from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds, has given me the opportunity to appreciate the diversity and uniqueness of each individual. Through the use of evidence based therapeutic practices, psycho-education about the effects of abuse, skill building, and practical self-soothing techniques, I aim to support my clients towards alleviating painful past experiences, insight into self-destructive patterns and discovering that sense of freedom and peace that comes with finding that a traumatic past does not define you or determine your future.
