Does life feel overwhelming? Do you find yourself isolating, pulling away, or leading a secret life? Does every conversation with your family feel like a fight? Or do you feel like you know what you need to do, but can’t bring yourself to do it? These feelings are a lot more common than you might think. Learning the skills to navigate and understand these problems can help you develop into the person you want to be.

My approach to treatment is based in relationships. Is the relationship in your life not what you want it to be? Is the relationship with yourself not a good one? Regardless of what relationship you are struggling with, I take the time to understand the pain and conflict in your life so that we can create an approach that fits for you. I will help you get to the root of what is hurting you to create lasting change. With empathy and care, I use proven treatments to help you understand your feelings and relationships, develop self-compassion and embrace a hope-filled future.  My goal is to provide strategies and tools that can be easily integrated into daily routines.

I have been successfully helping clients with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, and process addictions. I work using relational and attachment practices, CBT, and trauma focused approaches. I will use my experience and training to compassionately help you work through your problems and start finding hope, joy, and meaning in your life.

I have experience working with children through adults offering individual, couples and family counseling.

Family Therapy

Is every conversation a fight? Does family time, which is supposed to be relaxing, end up in either an argument or sullen silence? When your teen does talk to you, do you have any idea what to say?

This is incredibly exasperating for both you and your family. It can feel like you get stuck in a cycle of frustration, with each side either blaming the other, or just refusing to engage. Does your teen refuse to listen? Does it feel like they don’t care? Have they accused you of the same?

I don’t want to minimize what you, or those in your family are going through. However, if you don’t learn to communicate effectively, then you will never be able to address the problems directly. If your family doesn’t think that you understand or emotionally tolerate what’s going on in their life, they won’t say anything about it. If you don’t know how to make your child feel safe or connect in an emotional way, your attempts will fall on deaf ears.

There is a direct solution. Families, especially parents and teens, often speak different languages. Over time, trust degrades to the point where even if you all could speak the same language, it’s unlikely either of you would want to.

If you want to have dinners where everyone is talking, or be actually able to know how your child’s day at school went, you have to create this communication. Learning what your child feels, being able to accept it, and connecting with them around it will remove the largest obstacle to the challenges you are dealing with in your family. Do you want your child to come to you for advice? Do you want to be able to have a serious conversation with your teen without sullen resentment? Do you want to feel like a good parent again? Then reach out and start talking to your teen.

Trauma

What does trauma look like? Maybe you saw or heard of something you just can’t forget. Maybe thoughts or memories from long ago keep forcing themselves into your day-to-day life. Maybe you can’t do the things you used to love because of fear, depression, or overwhelming anxiety. However it manifests, trauma has the power to ruin lives.

You may think that you are weak, that you should just get over it. Or maybe you think that you are broken, and that there is no hope for you getting better. Or maybe you just feel overwhelmed and do not know what to do. These feelings are not based on who you are, but rather what you’ve been through. I have been helping people work through and overcome their past for 5 years, and I can help you move toward a more connected life.

Trauma is caused by the way memory is stored in a traumatic event. Normally, when you retrieve a memory, you are able to connect with it both logically and emotionally. However, when you retrieve a traumatic memory, the associated emotion overwhelms the rest of your brain and leaves you with only the emotional component.

It is also important to note that trauma isn’t always directly experienced. Witnessing an overwhelming event, or even hearing about it happen to someone you care about, can cause these symptoms to manifest. It is important to recognize that just because an event didn’t happen directly to you, it doesn’t mean that it didn’t have an impact on you.

In treating trauma, first you need to make sure you have the tools to regulate in a healthy way. This is important because eventually, through trauma treatment, such as brain-spotting, you will start to process the memories in a way that is safe, and that allows the logical part of your brain to fully connect with the overwhelming memory. This process is a highly emotional one, and not taking the time to learn proper grounding techniques can lead to becoming re-traumatized.

Trauma work is often painful and seeking help for it can be difficult. In the work I do, I make sure to let you set the pace of treatment, so we never go faster than you can tolerate. I use evidence-based trauma treatments, such as brain-spotting, to directly treat the trauma in your brain. Despite how scary starting the work can be, I have seen people change their lives in trauma treatment. They have been able to feel happy again, to feel like their back in control of their life, or that they are finally able to put the past to sleep.

Many people feel that what they have experienced isn’t real trauma. However, the important thing to consider is if what you have experienced is negatively impacting your life. I have done trauma work from everything from abuse victims looking to regain control of their lives to athletes wanting to improve their sports performance. No matter what you have experienced, if it’s still affecting your life, I can help you through it.
