My clients are ready to ditch their anxiety and worry. They know that the feelings of shame are keeping them from connecting to others. They are ready to find ways to ease that pounding chest and sense of impending doom. They know stress is a part of life but they would like to learn more ways to manage their worries. They’ve been able to keep it together for the most part so far despite their hardships. But they are ready to do more than just get by!
I am certified in The Trauma Conscious Yoga method (TCYM). Incorporating this somatic modality into session can look a number of different ways; to exploring where a particular emotion is “landing” in the body, to engaging in breath work as well as postures that can be helpful in learning to regulate your central nervous system.
I believe that viewing our feelings from outside in as well as inside out can provide us with the most insight into ourselves. My graduate training was focused in psychodynamic and attachment schools of thought.
Exploring how attachment with caregivers early in our lives can be fertile ground for gaining new understanding to present day relationships.
Anxiety serves a purpose! Its there to protect us. But many times we perceive a threat when it’s not as big as our brain leads us to believe. Finding ways to talk to yourself in times of panic or worry can be a pathway to relief. We will dig into lots of techniques to help you feel in control and equipped.
Losing someone is some of life's toughest stuff. But grief has many forms. Grief can result from a loss of a job, a recent health diagnosis or an end of a relationship. Therapy can offer security to ride the hills and valleys brought on by feelings of grief.
We all have our stories to share. I am so honored to be able to witness and sort through the strengths brought on by a person's darkest tales. I will create a space that helps you feel safe and supported to explore experiences that are painful to recall. Sharing your story with another empathic person can help free up emotional space to find meaning in the hurt and build room for new joys.
