Therapists & Social Workers
About: "One area of my expertise is working with survivors of abuse and trauma. I work with a variety of post-trauma survivors including people who are healing from domestic violence, sexual abuse, incest, and hate crimes. I also specialize in working with addiction, which I view not as a disease, but a learned coping skill that is often a means to manage and/or numb emotional pain."
