You feel lost, hopeless, and overwhelmed. You may have just received a diagnosis or started to question if you may have ADHD. Or, You may have complex trauma and feel therapy isn't working. If you have struggled healing trauma in the past, are having problems managing your ADHD symptoms, I have proven techniques and skills that will help you take back control in your life and emotional world. Give yourself the chance to thrive.
ART utilizes similar approaches to trauma healing as EMDR but in a shorter time frame. Clients will be directed to replace negative memory images with more positive images of their choosing - effectively eliminating the negative charge that these memories hold.
A form of psychotherapy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. This is the first stop in working to understand and contextualize the challenges you are facing.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. I utilize DBT informed therapy.
CBT is a type of therapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Together you will focus on changing automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts.
Therapeutic process designed to build skills for grounding, mindfulness, and distress tolerance. A piece of the therapeutic puzzle to help you cope day to day as we dive deeper into your work. It is used to support healing from trauma and coping with grief and loss.
I utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy to help bring fast relief to those experiencing difficult symptoms related to complex/developmental trauma. Clients can expect a handful of sessions to build the safety of our therapeutic relationship and then a dive into the process of ART to bring about quick change.
Receiving an ADHD diagnosis for yourself or your loved one can be both relieving and overwhelming. Finding the right support for your family system and for yourself will play a critical role in creating calm in your world. While ADHD is a chronic lifelong condition, it is treatable, manageable, and conquerable. The best decision you can make for yourself and your loved ones is to seek support to learn the skills and address the fears associated with impaired functioning due to ADHD.
The finality of the end of a life can leave you looking for answers, hoping for some kind of relief from the hole left in your world. But relationships don’t end with death, they are only transformed. As painful as it can be to hear right now, it is true that you will someday be okay again. In grief counseling you won’t be asked to be “over it” on any timeline other than you own. You will receive gentle support, guidance, and a reminder that you are not alone in this.
