I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.

Are you troubled and stressed in a relationship, but don't know how to change things? Do you say yes when you want to say no? Are you covering up your pain with destructive behaviors? Do you judge yourself harshly and feel you are just never good enough? Negative thoughts, anxiety and low self esteem can be an enormous burden, making it a crushing chore to just get through the day. They affect your relationships, your ability to work, and can lead to substance abuse, over-eating and other behaviors that can pull you into a downward spiral.

Feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Trauma-focused therapy is an approach that recognizes how trauma can impact what you believe and think, how you behave, handle big emotions, and may cause illness or somatic (body) complaints, from children to adults. It also offers coping skills, evidence-based interventions and strategies to better understand, cope with, and process emotions and memories tied to trauma. The goal is to decrease symptoms, create more choices and be able to handle daily life stressors differently. Want to know more? I have an excellent website with lots of information & resources.
