My Approach to Helping
⋒ Next Day Appointments ⋒
Hi, therapy can feel so intimidating, I hope you feel like you're just meeting a regular person with me. I help adults who grew up thinking they did not matter, were abused, abandoned or raised with violence or religious based fears. Such environments often forms deep truths we believe about ourselves and it impacts our overall mental health. When thinking of the past we can get stuck in vicious cycles, difficulty remembering large parts of childhood, feeling disconnected from ourselves, and we never really feel safe. Scary beliefs can start to form - will I ever be able to be vulnerable? Am I loved?
Using a trauma informed lens we take a deep into your history and use mental health focused validated assessments to track progress so you always know the purpose of our shared space and the length of time we plan on spending in that space. As a Certified Brainspotting therapist we can use brain stimulation during emotional activation for deep processing.
In my experience as a clinician, once we begin working together we form a deeper understanding and kindness toward ourselves and most importantly have long term mental relief. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you in a free consultation.
