Sometimes life brings difficult and confusing times. These difficulties typically get easier as days pass. However, there are times, or seasons, in our lives where problems are compounded for various reasons. We may feel overwhelmed and emotionally depleted which affect our quality of life and ability to function. We know that we, or our family, need help from a trained professional. If you are feeling this way, Brighter Days are here! My name is Yanada G. Essex. In 2002, I started a holistic counseling service called Brighter Days, Inc. to bring "brighter days" to you and your family.

Are you currently finding it difficult exploring your emotions? Anger? Fear? Shame? Sadness? Sometimes, does it seem that wondering about these emotions causes some anxiety and stress? Do you feel family, friends, and others don't understand? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you likely can benefit from addressing those thoughts through therapy where there is Confidentiality, Support, and No Judgement.

Therapy involves collaborating together to identify your strengths and to develop effective solutions to the issues, patterns, thoughts and actions you are experiencing in your life. I strive to provide clarification, encouragement, interpretation and information to facilitate you working toward your desired goals. Our emphasis will be on here-and-now choices to re-orient yourself to the present rather than just exploring the past. We all have an underlying drive to reach our maximum potential; I see therapy as a tool for uncovering that drive and finding self-actualization and my role is to encourage you in that exploration.

My approach to therapy is psychodynamic. I view the therapuetic process as a collaborative and empathic relationship of communication, exploration, reflection and insight. I believe it is the therapuetic relationship itself that is most important in creating the conditions for the deep exploratory work of psychotherapy and the possibility of change. The three goals of therapy are understanding, acceptance and change, where one is now, and what one is ready for could differ over time. We will begin where ever you are, clarify issues and establish goals. I hope I have an opportunity to meet and work with you.

Stress, anxiety, and trauma can overwhelm your system. Symptoms can manifest in unexpected ways and present differently for each of us. Sometimes, there is an identifiable triggering event, and other times, you may not know why you feel the way you do. My approach combines talk therapy with brain body therapies (EMDR & Brainspotting), which often yield faster, deeper results than talk therapy alone. These modalities work with the self-healing aspects of our biology, restoring balance to the nervous system, and influencing neural patterning so that deep and lasting change can happen.

*PLEASE NOTE- I AM OUT ON LEAVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2019* While using traditional talk therapy, I also incorporate teaching and interactive cognitive restructuring into sessions. I commonly utilize breathe work and other non traditional techniques into therapy. I allow the client to guide the session and their own work, but do not hold back observations about client's thought patterns and potential for growth. I treat all clients with unconditional positive regard and allow them to adapt within their own limits and social dynamics. Clients should always feel as though they have learned skills relevant to daily life.
