The mission of To Bear Witness is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to grow and achieve your goals.
I aim to help you . . . .
take control of your life and the ways you cope
find meaning and motivation
move away from emotional extremes and discover a balanced middle way
learn to ground yourself, so you can truly experience life as it is happening
Some people find it beneficial to process their own traumatic experiences or difficult past events; if you choose to do so in therapy, it will be at your own pace and comfort level. Most of all, I will acknowledge you as a unique person; therapy is going to look different for everyone, and our work will be tailored to your needs and goals.
I am highly experienced in working with issues related to: vicarious trauma, burnout, and compassion fatigue; addictions; bipolar, depressive, and anxiety disorders; trauma and PTSD; reintegration after incarceration; and existential challenges.
On a personal and clinical level, I understand how hard each day can be for people dealing with trauma, depression, addictions, anxiety, and more. But I also believe those hard days can get better, and life can have a new sense of meaning and purpose. Contact me to schedule an appointment or ask any questions you may have.
