CONNECT, CONCEIVE, CONVEY​

Have​ you had a disturbing experience that makes coping with everyday life difficult? Or perhaps you witnessed somethin​g awful that you just can’t get out of your mind? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. Welcome to RK Connections. In my practice, I work with clients who struggle with the psychological, emotional, and physical consequences of past andor ongoing trauma, as they try to avoid repeating personal and professional mistakes that serve only to worsen their traumatic experiences. If you are experiencing challenges such as these, I can help you gradually process your trauma in a supportive and validating environment that is empowering and ultimately freeing.


As a psychotherapist, my initial goal is to make you feel heard, safe, and understood;  everything else we accomplish in treatment will follow from this basis. When I work with you, I will blend trauma-focused, mindfulness, and insight-based psychotherapies, and use these approaches to help you cope with everyday challenges and see how they relate to long-standing behavior patterns.


In addition to my trauma specialty, I treat clients with mental health symptoms, including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, personality disorders, particularly borderline personality disorder, and bipolar disorder, as these conditions manifest in personal (family and relationships), professional (work and layoffs), and academic sectors of life.


I also run process groups for clients who want to become more self-aware, and understand more about interpersonal relationship dynamics, and how they both relate to and can help manage psychological distress.


In my therapeutic work, I integrate the many facets of my 20-year professional career – which have included positions in the corporate, academic, and educational sectors – with general life experience, to provide you with insightful, culturally sensitive treatment.
