My Approach to Helping
I will provide a safe and nonjudgmental place to address your concerns. I believe each person has the ability to overcome challenges they have endured. I will help you to gain a new perspective and find new ways of handling different situations.
I use authenticity and compassion to build a therapeutic relationship. I am skilled at helping victims and survivors of trauma. I also love working with couples to find the strengths within you to get to a happier and more hopeful, loving relationship.
I offer intensive sessions for individuals who are wanting to find some relief from trauma.
I also offer half-day and all-day Couples Intensives to help you get through the hardest part of your struggles so that you will feel you have the tools to communicate differently and go forward.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am an EMDR clinician, which provides me with the skills to provide you a method to be able to deal with difficult experiences and triggers in a more adaptive way. Whether you have a annoying issue that keeps popping up or a significant trauma that haunts you, EMDR will help you to feel more capable to handle it.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Often times painful feelings ARE overwhelming. You probably have a few things you do every time you feel overwhelmed, but maybe it isn't working as well as it used to. Maybe you would like some help to figure out how to deal with that overwhelmed feeling of a flood of emotions. In either situation, I will help you by getting to know the strengths you already have and discussing other methods that will also be helpful to reduce that overwhelming feeling of a big truck running you down.
