Trauma Recovery

Although the world is full of suffering,

It is also full of the overcoming of it.

Loss of Sense of Self

After surviving the chaos of a past conflict, abuse, trauma, or just the ongoing day-to-day, it can feel as if you're simply existing in this thing called Life. Sometimes, you may feel as though you've lost your identity through a life change, like becoming a parent, losing a loved one, getting married or divorced, or changing jobs. You might have looked back at pictures of yourself and realized you barely recognize the person in the pictures, who you "used to be." However you may have lost yourself, I'm honored to be by your side as you come back to yourself.

Clearing out the Past

I believe that you are so much more than your experiences.

However, sometimes that is difficult for you to see for yourself. Especially when issues from the past are taking over your present.
