My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with women age 30-70 who are ready to heal from past trauma that has been causing anxiety, depression, grief and physical pain and suffering. This can be tough journey and you need someone with personal experience and special training to move through this process with you. Even as a therapist, I was well into my 30's before I really dove into my past and the pain I was carrying around within me. I had very little idea how much it was impacting my relationships, my parenting, my career, my finances and my health. I allowed so much of myself to go unseen and unheard and it was manifesting is anxiety, anger (so much anger!), depression and physical pain and illness. I was at a point where I could not ignore the signs any longer and I had to dive in. Ugh. It was rough. It was painful. And it was so worth it.
You are here for a reason. You are in emotional pain. Anxiety and sadness come in waves. Your patience is tested throughout the day. You feel sluggish and tired. You feel lonely even though you might be surrounded by people.
We are in a special time in our world with this forced isolation, where we can either be stuck in our fear and stay where we are OR take advantage of this time to go within and do the work you have been avoiding, masking and shoving down. A part of you really wants to do this but a part of you is really scared. I know. And it is ok. You are ok. You are here for a reason.
I am here for a reason too. Together we can create a path for your specific healing journey. Many of my clients are motivated to make a change but are looking for the guidance, support and experience to create powerful transformations in their lives so they can have the health and happiness they desire and deserve.
Trauma, whether big, small, one time or ongoing, is so invasive to every area of our lives. When not addressed it manifests is mental, emotional and physical ways such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addictions, body aches and pains, chronic illness and more. Trauma is stored in our bodies and it takes time and space to learn how to heal old wounds, cultivate self-love and compassion and live the life you are supposed to be living. It is time for you take charge of your emotional, mental, and physical well-being. You can heal from past trauma, reduce stress and strengthen coping skills so you can trust in yourself and make more empowered choices.
