My Approach to Helping

Sometimes we don't know where to begin to lessen our emotional pain. I am here to work with you to understand your story and struggles so that I can learn how best to support you. Together we can work on understanding your emotional pain and anxieties to create the life that you want and deserve.

When working together, you will learn tools on how to cope with overwhelming thoughts and emotions, how to work through difficult relationship situations, and how to be more at peace with yourself. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to voice your feelings and worries to explore how to feel better.

Or do you have a child who seems troubled? As a parent, you are not alone. I will help your child learn how to cope with difficult emotions, social and school situations, and to give them tools needed for their own unique and specific challenges. I am also here to support you as a parent. We will discuss how to manage specific behavioral problems, how to support them emotionally, and how your child can thrive socially and academically.

Please contact me for a free consultation; I would love to talk with you more about what I offer and what you are looking for. Visit my website for additional information on the services I provide: www.ChildandAdultmft.com

More Info About My Practice

One of my specializations is working with trauma. Trauma comes in many forms including experiencing a loss or experiencing difficulties in a relationship. You may have felt like you shut down or freeze in situations, or overwhelmed by emotions that seem to just come out of nowhere. Or you may have flashbacks from a specific traumatic event. All of these responses are normal reactions.

It can feel like such a lonely and isolating experience, especially if we feel like others don't understand what we're experiencing. Feeling misunderstood can make us feel even worse. We will work together to uncover what is blocking you from accessing the parts of you that are whole and safe to not just survive, but thrive.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If you are on the fence about going to therapy, it doesn't hurt to give it a try to see if it works for you and to find out if it is helpful. It is important to find a therapist who is the right fit as well; it makes all the difference to talk with someone you feel comfortable with and with whom you have a trusting relationship; it is then that healing is more likely to happen. I would love to speak with you to see if we are a good fit.

It can be scary to think about going to therapy at first, and the stigma associated with going to therapy in this culture (and in many cultures) does not help. I believe it is a strength to reach out for help and to say what we need.

In addition to the emotional support, therapists can help with seeing patterns and family dynamics that one who isn't trained may not see. Thus, therapy is all about gaining understanding about why we may be having certain struggles. There are many things we are not aware of and the more we can uncover the roles we play in certain dynamics and why we are in so much emotional pain, the less stuck we are and the more freedom and choices we may have in our lives to build the life that we want and deserve.

What Makes up a Problem?

A problem is anything that may be bothering you, big or small. Even if something seems small, there may be bigger aspects to it that we may not realize. I believe that everything is connected. Even if you talk about something that seems small, this smaller issue may point us to some deeper pain that needs to be heard. My experience is that the problem or overwhelming emotions will start getting better and feel less overwhelming the more it is talked about, heard, and understood.
