complex trauma due to individuals whom they share(d) an intimate relationship with (partner(s)/family/loved ones) who they know have or suspect personality/mood disorders, and | have an interest in research that will promote empowerment of post traumatic growth in individuals to reclaim their lives.
My passion is helping others to find their purpose through person centered, humanistic, and motivational approaches, while also leveraging solution focused approaches.
I can empathize with individuals in understanding the complexities of doing the hard work to heal from various
traumas as it is continuous, which gives me the opportunity to use my empathy in helping you to recover and be the best person you can be. If you are looking to start or continue your healing, look no further.
