Understanding our story means we understand the "why's" behind what we do in our lives. We either know, understand and accept our stories or our stories live us out. Have you asked yourself these questions before: Why does this keep happening to me? How did I end up here again? Why do I keep making these hurtful choices? Why do I keep behaving in these hurtful ways? Why does happiness and contentment continue to evade me? Through Story Informed Trauma Therapy, I can help you understand the answers to these questions.

As you teach me about yourself, I will consider your emotional, behavioral and spiritual life as well as the environment that surrounds you daily. I will help you to look at your past, present, and future to identify problems and solutions. I truly love the process of collaborating together to help you and your family discover and live a more meaningful, satisfying and authentic life.
