Having training in attachment theory serves as a solid foundation for understanding client’s development of maladaptive coping strategies and how this relates to the client’s emotional difficulties. Using this therapy, I can help clients increase self-compassion and kindness because clients who have attachment disorders/wounds often develop a negative self-view.
I have extensive training and experience working with individuals dealing with addiction.
As I have grown into a professional license counselor I have come to realize the benefits of deep work to heal trauma and various other human concerns. It helps individuals accept, regulate, express, and bring awareness of the complexity of human emotions. Understanding emotions help guides us to our needs or wants.
Managing anxiety when you may have underlying issues thus at a higher risk. Managing social isolation.
Victims often feel they are being degraded and often don’t feel their abusers see their innate worth as a human being. The abuse often centers around control and they will use many harmful techniques to maintain and/or gain control over their victims. I have training and experience working with all forms of abuse and together we can create a safe space for you and break the cycle of violence.
Conflicts can arise at any stage in a relationship. Sometimes these conflicts grow in complexity despite our best efforts to resolve them on our own. Whether you’re a new couple, a married couple, or a couple facing separation, I can work with you to navigate and resolve the challenges in your relationship.
Death and bereavement are universally inescapable events that we all have to face; no matter how much we resist. Individuals may experience suicidal thoughts, numbness, or the disconnection , which interferes with daily activities. What we do with that indentation gives us strength or hinders us from living. Some clients need a higher level of support and this is where I can come.
Healthy anxiety keeps us alert, in tune with our surroundings, and does not interfere with our lives. Unhealthy anxiety is present even if there is no perceived threat. It disrupts your life, and creates isolation. I firmly believe that you are unique and deserve a plan that is realistic and will result in the highest level of recovery.
