When our core needs aren’t met at an early age and our experiences are fraught with misattunement, neglect, and abuse from our caregivers, we find ways to adapt in an attempt to keep us safe. As we grow older these adaptive mechanisms often develop into chronic anxiety, depression, low self-worth, persistent shame and insecure attachment in relationships. We can also end up feeling lost, unfulfilled, and unsure of who we are and what our purpose in life is as adults.
If you have been experiencing any of these mental and emotional challenges, I want you to know you don’t have to suffer alone and there is hope. My intent is to support you in processing any unresolved pain and trauma, cultivating a sense of inner safety and strength, and growing your capacity to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings.
