Relational Trauma Recovery Center

The most difficult traumas from which to recover are those that occur at the hands of those we expect to love and protect us.

Whether you experienced abuse or neglect as a child, deception in an adult relationship, or both, profound and unexpected betrayal can be deeply traumatic — causing lasting changes in the areas of the brain responsible for regulating emotion, thought, and memory.


When your brain is hijacked in this way, regaining control is difficult. Trauma causes us to question the truths of our very being. But you don't have to live by its lies. You can find your way back to your authentic self. Emotional restoration and connection that energizes new attitudes, perspectives, and action, is waiting for you. 

Your resilience is a powerful force.

I work with clients whose anxiety, depression, and addictions are rooted in significant and layered trauma. An expert in Complex Trauma, my work is based on the fundamental belief that recovery is only possible if our underlying negative beliefs and their accompanying physiological symptoms are identified and resolved.


As a therapist with personal experience in trauma, I know this for a fact. By combining a relational approach with advanced limbic system therapies, including EMDR and attachment work, I guide my clients in updating old narratives about who they really are, what they truly deserve, and how they get to show up in the world.



Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a robust, evidence-based method that uses eye movements to work deeply in neural networks to reprocess difficult or traumatic events.


Feeling stuck in your regular therapy? I collaborate with your primary therapist to narrowly target specific traumatic memories or intrusive material to accelerate progress and enrich your ongoing work. 


EMDR Intensives are highly personalized experiences that forego the traditional in-person weekly psychotherapy model in order to get you the support you need when you need it most.


Few therapists have the specialized training, experience and research background needed to recognize and treat survivors of narcissistic abuse. I'm proud to be one of them.
