My Approach to Helping
My clients are burned-out peacemakers suffering from anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. They put others before themselves and struggle to set boundaries. Many had difficult childhoods where their emotional needs weren't fully met and may struggle with ongoing difficult family relationships. They may have a history of childhood trauma, which we address with EMDR. Our work is a process of learning who they are, what they need, and undoing the unhealthy patterns that keep them trapped. I provide virtual individual, family, and EMDR therapy.
I focus on anxiety, family relationship distressconfIict, trauma, people-pleasing, and self-esteem concerns. I use an integrated approach utilizing emotion-focused therapy and mindfulness. I treat trauma using EMDR. I help clients deepen their understanding of themselves and challenge narratives that no longer serve them.
