Psychological pain at times can be more intense than physical suffering. If you feel pain, I can help you to alleviate it. I have 20 years of experience helping my clients to cope with trauma, anxiety, fear, anger, shame and guilt. I am one of a few family therapist trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy for children in Florida and also work with psychological trauma in kids and couples using EMDR and TIR. If you would like to move away from suffering and feel much better, I would be honored to support your journey toward healing. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
I am the only person in South Florida trained in DBT for children - brand new evidence-based approach to help children who are emotionally dysregulated. I also use the best methods for trauma - EMDR with adults, children and adolescents. Many of us in the past have had horrible situations that still bother us, EMDR helps to get rid of pain and enjoy life!
It can be hard to take the initial step and open up to someone you don't know, so you can email me or call and we will speak to get familiar with each other. However, it’s important to trust yourself. If you feel like you are not comfortable enough to get started, don’t force yourself. I’ll be here to help you build a better life whenever you are ready.
Психологическая боль бывает порой сильнее физической. Если вы сейчас переживаете, страдаете, не знаете, что делать и как справиться с трудностями - я могу помочь. У моих клиентов снижается тревога, страх, люди перестают срываться на близких и налаживают отношения в семье. Я работаю с русско-американскими парами и помогаю решать конфликты и наладить отношения после измены. Более чем 20-летний опыт работы позволяет быстро подбирать терапию, которая поможет именно вам.
В работе я использую научно проверенные методы психотерапии такие как DBT-C, EMDR, ACT. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) - метод, которые позволяет в избавиться от психологической боли, связанной с чем-то страшным, что произошло в прошлом и изменить отношение к себе, а DBT и ACT помогают улучшить регуляцию эмоций.
Я знаю, что к психологу идти бывает страшно, довериться чужому человеку сложно. Порой люди готовятся пойти к психологу годами. Я хочу заверить вас, что сделаю все возможное, чтобы помочь вам. Вы можете позвонить или написать мне, чтобы понять, подойду ли я для вас и вашей ситуации. Желаю вам отличного дня:)
