Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Social Worker LCSW, LCSW-C
I have had the privilege of working and training in a sexual assault center for many years and this has increased my expertise when working with individuals struggling with this trauma. It takes courage to take the first steps in order to "come out the other side" with a feeling of self confidence, mastery, and healing.

Hypnotherapist, Hypnotherapist certified by International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association
Sexual abuse is a particular form of trauma and PTS ("Post Traumatic Stress - I don't like the "D" for "disorder"). This work can be difficult. We will work through and resolve the memory of the original incident or incidents (there are often many, over a period of years), in gentle ways that do not require direct, painful re-experiencing. We will work mostly on the unconscious level to resolve the emotions involved, and the associated shame, guilt, regret, and grief. And we will use NLP and hypnosis to disarm the triggers that bring back the thoughts and feelings. This work can take longer than the 3-4 sessions that resolve most other types of issues.

9 Years Experience
Counselor/Therapist, MA, LCPC
Having worked extensively at the Montgomery County Crisis Center in conjunction with the Sexual Assault Service I am very familiar with the trauma of sexual assault and abuse and how to deal with it. Unresolved issues in this area can greatly affect one's self-esteem one's sense of control, and one's sense of safety. I can help you work through that and help you heal the past and any difficulties you may be having in your present relationships because of it.
