Healing is a journey. For some, "healing" means reversing years of trauma, and for others it means 'getting out of my own head' or 'getting un-stuck.' For everyone, the path to healing is a difficult one, and it is lighter, easier, more meaningful when others join in with you. To you who have tried to go it alone, I invite you to reach out. Connecting with a counselor is a way to get un-stuck in your journey towards health, to bring healing to those deeper places of hurt.
My goal in working with a client is to help them develop the insight, skills, strengths, resources, and supports to work toward that state of being "healthy." I work with the best available, evidence-based modalities to support people on their journey towards health. This includes EMDR, trauma-based, and attachment-based modalities.
Life is hard, and for many, so is asking for help. And life is better, and easier, with the help of others. I would encourage anyone who has lost hope, who feels over-burdened, or worn out by life to reach out. I can help you get back on track to living a healthy, hopeful, meaningful life.
