My Approach to Helping
Here are some common reasons people contact me:
-Nothing feels like it makes sense. You may be angry, frustrated, exhausted, or experiencing other emotional issues. You want to feel at home in your body and feel safe again. I can’t wave a magic wand and make your pain go away, but I can help you focus on your needs.
-It feels like no one ‘gets’ you which might be true because you’ve gone through something life-changing. It can be scary to talk about your experiences, but I offer talk therapy in addition to other types of therapy (such as Art Therapy and a trauma therapy called EMDR) that don’t require you to tell your whole story unless you want to.
-While there’s no ‘right’ way to heal, there are ways to help you decrease your suffering. I teach new skills and check-in on what works for you.
-You need help trusting yourself and hearing your intuition instead of second-guessing. I work with you to restore your relationship with yourself. You need reassurance that your experience and responses are valid and normal.
-You want to be able to focus on yourself again and all of the dreams you thought you lost along the way. You want to be able to think about your future and feel hopeful instead of constantly ruminating over what "couldshould" have happened differently.
-If you are not sure if I can help, send me an email, I’d love to talk: firstname.lastname@example.org. I offer a free 30 minute face-to-face online 'mini-session' so it doesn't cost you anything to consider change!
