I strongly believe that our attachment experiences, from birth through adulthood, shape the way that we relate to ourselves and others. I will help you understand this lens through which you see the world, and open up possibilities for growth and healing, which ultimately leads to a more authentic and meaningful connections.
EMDR is an integrative approach that helps facilitate a natural healing process in all individuals. EMDR has been extensively researched and proven to be effective in relieving all types of difficulties. The goal of EMDR is to leave you with the emotions, understanding, and perspectives that will lead to healthy/useful behaviors and interactions. EMDR can offer healing and empowerment.
At the core, I believe that the past influences the present, and it is important to examine some of the deep roots that may be causing you issues as you move towards healing and growth. Counseling can provide you an opportunity to recognize and resolve these blocks and develop effective tools for working through them.
If you are struggling with addiction, whether it be alcohol, prescription medication, sex, food, gambling, street drugs, or any other mood-altering experience, recovery is possible. Through therapy, I will support you in gaining insight into the function the addiction has served in your life, learn effective coping skills, and develop an increased sense of options and potential.
I have extensive experience and training in issues around child and adolescent mental health issues, including eating disorders, body image issues, and substance abuse. Through therapy, I support children and young adults in expressing and exploring their lived experience and understanding of things, resolving emotional blocks, and ultimately, heal and grow.
Eating disorders are complex as they directly impact our physical and emotional well-being. I believe that full recovery is possible and I am passionate about helping individuals regain balance and hope in all areas of their life. Through therapy, we can work towards understanding the function that the eating disorder has in your life and explore the emotions and patterns that contribute to it.
If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety, panic attacks, or stress that feels unmanageable, counseling can provide an opportunity to not only learn new ways of coping and managing the anxiety and stress, but also offers you a space to gain insight into patterns that are keeping you stuck, and ultimately, bring healing and wholeness to yourself.
Depression can be an isolating and hopeless experience, but there is hope. Through therapy, I can support you in gaining insight into the root causes of your depression, develop coping skills, and find healing and wholeness on the other side.
