My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling overwhelmed by difficult challenges and transitions in your life? Are you angry, depressed, anxious, stuck in unhealthy relationships or self-defeating behaviors? Are you stressed and sleepless? Do you long to make the changes necessary to feel a sense of purpose and fulfillment?
You really can start again!

Whether you've been diagnosed with adult ADD/ADHD or PTSD, or you are dealing with other kinds of traumatic experience, you can learn to overcome the negative emotions and thoughts that keep you from a more satisfying, purposeful life. You may be surprised at the progress you make through your own insights and observations!

A thoughtful program of therapy can heal the mind and release the physiological impact of traumatic experience.

In an atmosphere of acceptance, careful listening and caring, you and I can identify areas of difficulty and find solutions to deal with them.

I invite you to unpack your emotional baggage and leave it in my office! You can accept and like yourself. Explore your emotions, moods and thoughts, modify your behaviors and set realistic goals.

Your therapies will be designed according to your unique history and circumstances. They may include cognitive therapies and body-based trauma healing, as well as guided imagery, meditation and BrainSpotting.

We will make a plan for your time in sessions and in between sessions. A program based on your time needs and availability will be created to help you get the most from your therapy while giving you flexibility and support.

You are not alone in your journey. Let's work together and help make use of the resources inside so you can move ahead to a more satisfying, fulfilling life! Your life can change and now is the time to start.

More Info About My Practice

Your ability and opportunity to come into the therapy space is also important. Sometimes you just can't travel to your therapist's office and that may be the time when you really want to talk. To deal with the complications of busy schedules, heavy traffic and bad weather, I offer HIPPA compliant secure video conferencing. Video conferencing requires that you have a private space from which to talk without interruption and a current operating system on your smart phone, tablet or computer. I can help you with a free download from a secure video conferencing company. You and I can discuss this option after we have established a therapeutic relationship. It is not right for everyone but it may be right for you.

In addition, I have two hypoallergenic therapy puppies that are friendly and helpful in reducing stress. They can attend your session upon request.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I have been in your shoes. I had a diagnosis of PTSD when I was in my 20's and have also struggled with ADD, not realizing I had it until I was an adult. I also survived a bout with cancer. I know how it feels when life becomes overwhelmingly difficult, when fear, stress and immobility make it hard to move ahead and make changes.

Having grown up in a military family, I developed adaptability, flexibility and resilience, skills that helped me grow and cope over the years. You, too, have inner skills you can use to assist you in growth and renewal. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with a phone call. Let's talk. I think we can work together. All the best, Peggy
