I specialize in providing “hands-on” support in a compassionate and non-judgmental space. I may not have walked in your shoes, but I will listen knowing we don’t always know the right words to express our emotional pain. If I had to condense my specialties into one, I would say that I specialize in healing emotional pain. I believe that that is an undercurrent to most of what ails us. I focus on connection to self, purpose and others and emotional regulation so that we build an inner sense of calm and stability to operate with confidence in the world.
Here’s what I can say about my practice getting right to the point:
o Relationship conflicts – does it seem like you attract unhealthy partners? Are you trying too hard?
o Identity exploration -has your role in life changed? Do you feel conflicted about cultural issues?
o Self-Esteem- do you feel unworthy no matter your accomplishments?
o Addiction- are you using more than you should or keeping your substance use a secret from a loved one?
Benefits of therapy:
o Being able to pinpoint the reasons for recurring behaviors that are getting in your way.
o Finding it easier to connect to those you care about.
o Greater ease saying “no” to situations or people you don’t want in your life.
o Feeling more confident in your abilities and acceptance with who you are.
o Counseling: Short-term practical solutions and skills-building.
o Trauma: Trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Brainspotting, both of which delve deep to help your brain process emotional wounds on a subcortical level outside of your consciousness. Both are convenient for those who cannot remember or have difficulty discussing trauma.
o Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Traditional “talk-therapy” that helps with understanding the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
o Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Targets emotional regulation, interpersonal interactions and distress tolerance.
