There is no better time than now to focus on a solution to your problem so that you can feel better sooner than later. I whole heartedly believe that you already have the innate capacity to solve your problems right now. Our work together will uncover what you already know so that you can move in the direction you want to go in your life. Lets get started it won’t take long.
I have completed specialized training and practice in narrative based interventions. I empower my clients to explore their personal narrative, dis-empowering old story lines that no longer serve them ultimately encouraging them to craft a new narrative that embodies who they truly are. You are the navigator of your life and together will will identify a sustainable path to well being.
Mindfulness based interventions invite us to examine what’s really happening in the moment that supports or hinders our well being. Mindfulness encourages working with unskillful habits and thoughts that keep us stuck and can reduce unnecessary suffering. I have embraced a mindfulness practice in my personal life for over 20 years and my practice informs my work with clients.
It can be hard to live together under the same roof much less get along. I provide family therapy that can help members find their voice to advocate for their needs, understand one another, reduce conflict and maybe even help one another like each other again. Family therapy can help you discover the uniqueness of each family member so living together feels natural again.
I know that your thoughts of self harm are temporary. Your thoughts are not all of who you are, in fact they are one small part. Let’s work together to understand the pain that creates these thoughts and then lets create a new understanding about yourself that includes a positve narrative that supports who you really are. We are never our thoughts. Ever!
We are not our thoughts and we don't have to believe them. Body image struggles are likely attached to unskillful and habitual thinking. We can work together to dis-empower the habitual thoughts that hold you hostage. We can craft accurate thoughts that support your self esteem. Lets work collaboratively to improve your relationship to your body, mind and emotions.
Trauma happens. It hurts. I can assist you in identifying historical or current circumstances that have caused you pain so that you might begin the process of dis-empowering the story lines that keep you stuck. From there, I can assist you in identifying a new narrative that is affirming and that supports your well being.
I provide individual therapy for teens and adults who are living with depression and other mood challenges. I understand that 'heavy' feeling that is all consuming and feels bigger than us. Let’s work collaboratively to identify the barriers and habitual patterns that keep you stuck and then develop a sustainable path forward incorporating your healing and improved well being.
