I use brainspotting at the request of my clients or if the traditional talk therapy may benefit from brainspotting techniques if a client has a hard time processing through difficult or traumatic experiences.
I have been treating clients that has had anxiety from life changes, co-parenting mandated by court, and first responders who sadly experience anxiety due to their high stressful day to day life. My goal is to walk alongside my clients to be able to manage their anxiety and create a reasonable lifestyle change with them.
I have 13 years experience working with client ages 11-18 years old in different capacities. I understand how challenging this time is for teens as they navigate the different changes in their body, school, family life, personal beliefs and values. I aim to assist teens in finding the path that would bring them the most peace and align with their sense of purpose.
Feelings are neither good or bad, it can however be unpleasant at times. Instead of avoiding situations that bring out these unpleasant feelings, with ACT, I can help you observe these feelings and I can teach you how you can respond appropriately to said feelings.
