About

Have you had moments where your past becomes present? Do strong feelings or intense memories influence how you live, and sometimes get in your way? We often develop coping mechanisms to manage distressing thoughts, feelings, and memories. Initially, these mechanisms may be helpful but long term, they often stop being effective, (anger, depression, anxiety, overworking, disordered eating, etc) and in fact, become harmful.
Clients I work with often have been experiencing the effects of trauma (recent events or childhood, multiple/single events). The effects of trauma can show up in many forms. Often clients come after trying many types of therapy and multiple therapists. Whether that is you - or perhaps you have never worked with a psychologist, you are welcome.
Finding a good therapist client match is crucial to making your experience in therapy worthwhile and successful. Taking that first step is often challenging. Committing to the process of change can seem overwhelming. Take that first step and book your consultation call today. Please remember to check your spam folder if emailing.
