"According to the World Health Organization, 15% of the world"s population or one billion people live with some form of disability. People with disabilities (PWDs) are considered a minority group, and one of the few that has open enrollment. People without disabilities are just one accident or diagnosis away from belonging to this same group.
Whether you were born with a disability or acquired one later in life, you might be trying to find a therapist who has specialized experience working with PWDs. I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, which means I have specific education, training, and experience in adjustment to disability and chronic illness, in addition to my clinical mental health training. Whether your disability is documented or not, invisible or visible, I believe you, I see you, and I want to help you navigate your life with dignity, independence, and self-determination.
PWDs often have a trauma background. I am passionate and experienced with treating clients who have intersecting trauma and disability."
