I am trained in multiple modalities to help you as there is no one right modality. I pull from multiple techniques to meet you where you are. Here-and-now approaches that focus on the present manifestations of symptoms are extremely helpful. Solution-focused therapies can be the best choice depending on what you're experiencing. Similarly, therapies that connect the past to the present in a here-and-now way can provide healing for many people and help you with future dilemmas.
I am EMDR Trained to help you re-process past experiences that are likely causing you discomfort. With EMDR, you can experience enhanced coping with chronic health issues. You'll finally have a chance to breathe when previously you've been stuck. Bilateral processing helps you develop a deeper connection to safety as well as a way for stuck emotions and experiences to finally become free.
By examining past experiences and seeing how they connect to the present, you can become more here-and-now focused and no longer be stuck in the past. Talk therapy that includes the past has been found to be extremely beneficial for many issues.
Anxiety is a very draining and stressful issue to deal with. It can overwhelm relationships, your self-esteem, your work life, and / or other areas of your life. I can help by listening and providing strategies or by helping by just allowing a safe space for you to have the validation and confidentiality you need to get things off your plate! It is time for anxiety to become less overwhelming because our society expects so much from us.
Some of us are more empathic or absorb more energy from others. But that is a trait that should be nourished. It can feel like it is too much to handle. Boundaries and different types of boundaries can be helpful to learn how to live in a society that does not always value people that absorb and see details the way you do as a highly sensitive person. We can work together to find out how to balance things so your energy is better balanced.
