Rarely do we live life through a linear narrative. The highs and lows that we endure are all a part of the human experience. But for survivors of abuse, the low moments may be felt more often than not.
Abuse-related trauma can have lasting effects on one’s mental wellbeing and hinder the ability to cope with stress, form positive relationships, and face challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, survivors may feel a sense of hopelessness when it comes to healing from the aftermath of trauma.
It is Hiwa’s mission to foster wellbeing for survivors of sexual assault and interpersonal violence. This is achieved through evidence-based therapeutic interventions where acceptance, compassion, and sincerity are cornerstones of the healing process.
Under the clinical supervision of Dr. Bridgette Chase (Chase Consulting, LLC), I provide short and long-term therapy to those living in the Washington, DC area. I also offer psychoeducational presentations and trainings to community organizations for the benefit of consumer participation.
With professional experience in survivor-centered program development, crisis intervention and response, psychosocial case-management services, sexual assault support services, and group facilitation, I strive to address the wellbeing of trauma survivors. I take an individualized and person-centered approach to therapy, believing that you are the expert on yourself and have the ability to make active, organic choices about how you want to live.
If you have experienced sexual assault or interpersonal violence and are having trouble healing from this type of trauma, consider scheduling a consultation today.
