I specialize in working with people who naturally find ways to take care of themselves, and shy away from seeing a therapist. Typically they are Military Veterans and others who have the heart of a Warrior.
Sometimes that independence and self-reliance that helps you succeed in most areas of life also keeps you from asking for assistance. Serving and supporting others is also the drive that keeps you from even noticing what's going on with you. Let's take a moment to focus on you, so you can continue to have the strength to focus on those you care about.
Have you had poor sleep, nightmares, or wanted to isolate yourself more than usual since "that thing" happened? That's common after experiencing a significant event that shifts the way we view ourselves, others, and even life itself. Who do you share that with? Who understands besides the ones who experienced it with you?
No one knows what it's like to be you. But, it may be possible to feel heard, understood, and get resolution.
