"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship"
~Louisa May Alcott
I am here to help you learn to lead a life worth celebrating. We can't change difficult situations of the past, but we can learn to understand how the past shapes the present and how to influence our future. Together we explore behavior patterns or beliefs that may be holding you back from a more fulfilling life free of emotional dysregulation when the unexpected happens.
Trauma, both "T" and "t", can feel exhausting and overwhelming, including symptoms like fatigue, sleep disruption, intrusive thoughts and ruminating, difficulty concentrating, anxiety and panic, sadness or hopelessness, irritability, avoidance or isolation, and over/under reacting to things. Let me help you feel the shift as disturbing memories resolve and you experience ease of being. I have advanced training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and over twenty years of experience guiding people through the aftermath of disturbing experiences.
As a person-centered therapist, I believe in everyone's innate drive to be well. I am here for you, I hear you, and I care. I embrace a growth mindset and believe you can become the person you want to be.
Whether you're looking for extra support and guidance through a rough situation or you're ready to move your life in a new direction, I look forward to helping you to reach your goals. Don't let challenges or trauma undermine your peace of mind.
Please call or email today for a free consultation or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you.
