Can Therapy Help Me?
I know you're hurting, and I know it's lonely holding that pain. Sometimes it weighs so heavy you can barely breathe, or maybe your body is so tired from the tension you carry. Some days you stay so busy you almost forget, or you're exhausted just trying to stay focused on what you have to do. Maybe your emotions are uncontrollable, sitting just below the surface, or you can't even connect to your feelings. Whatever your struggle is, there is hope.
I work with people who:
feel sad, overwhelmed, disconnected, worried, irritable, ashamed, unmotivated or numb
are experiencing racing or intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, dissociation or trouble sleeping
have witnessed or faced trauma, physical and sexual assault, domestic violence or abuse
have anxiety, depression, stress, grief, family conflict, PTSD, substance use, anger or self harm
are disrupted by the effects or changes caused by COVID or the pandemic response
have pain, distress, or injury from a motor vehicle accident or other medical condition
notice difficulties in relationships or at home, school, work or in the community
Is Therapy Effective?
You can't just talk your way out of trauma.
Maybe you're brand new to therapy, or maybe you've tried it once or a dozen times. Either way, I'm here to offer you something different. I recognize you can't talk your way out of trauma. Abuse, neglect, grief, pain, and injury impact our brains and bodies in ways that can linger for decades. You need a new experience that integrates mind, body, and emotion to help you find safety and trust so you can feel and heal your way forward.
I empower clients to learn and grow using an attachment approach that encourages transformation through relational safety. I incorporate my knowledge of neurobiology and development to help you understand what you are experiencing, why it is happening, and support you in how to change.
When you are safe enough to connect with your body and feelings, we can process and release what's holding you back, freeing you to live from a regulated place based on preference, not fear. Together we can enable your body and mind to heal and promote your overall health and well-being. It is possible to feel better, move forward, engage in healthy relationships, and thrive instead of just survive.
