We first determine what you want to work on. This is not as simple as it sounds, as there are often defenses that have been built up. If so, then we look at those defenses, such as blaming others or considering oneself too worthless to get better. When we can get through the defenses, we can usually make some connections with patterns of behavior, such as self-sabotaging. We work to help you able to make better connections with others and with parts of yourself. I also do intensive work in therapy for people who have suffered from traumas. These traumas have left you stuck. By using an evidence-based therapy called EMDR, we are able to help you get unstuck. You can then stop avoiding life!
