You feel completely, utterly alone. You wonder “What is wrong with me?” “Am I losing my mind?” “Am I crazy?” “When will I be good enough?” You have likely suffered psychological abuse. Not the cuts and bruises that can be seen, but instead the hidden abuse that causes psychological injuries that shatter your emotions, self-esteem and wound your soul. Maybe you grew up with a toxic parent, are involved with a narcissistic significant other, or are constantly dealing with a toxic friend or coworkers.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted at the end of the day? Like no one really gets you? Like even though you are in a room full of people, you are completely alone? That even though you ask for support, it is falling on deaf ears? Have you been labeled "too sensitive"? Are you having difficulty understanding why other people seem to be able to get all the things done that overwhelm you? Did you once have it "all together" and now things seem to be slowly slipping between your fingers? Do you have difficulty doing the water cooler talk?

I work with chronically traumatized people to resolve reactivity from bad events. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. This is challenging work for the clinician and client. Not all therapies work for everyone but evidenced based therapy has been researched and well documented in providing results. Using a licensed therapist helps. Using a licensed therapist who is certified in their specialty is better. That means you will read about many therapists who state they offer interventions for everything but have not completed supervised case work to earn certifications in the modalities they present.

You tell your friends and family of your dreams with enthusiasm, but each day you wake to the same life you’ve had for years.

Sometimes our inner critic can be relentless by telling us we aren’t good enough, strong enough, smart enough, skinny enough, outgoing enough, attractive enough, or likeable enough to do something. That voice can become so common that we don’t even question the validity of it anymore. It eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because at some point we begin viewing the world through that lens of never being able to measure up. We then begin to seek out information that agrees with our inner critic. We can also misread others’ comments, gestures or facial expressions so that it aligns with our own doubts about ourselves.

These are difficult times. Anxiety can have a life of its own. Providing better help through online Telehealth is a 15 year specialty in my 36 year career. So many "what ifs" are a reality in many lives. What does one do when anxiety, stress and panic hit? Change from what was normal to the "now normal" can bring reactivity and stress. I offer online therapy helping clients understand their lives and the roots of their personal anxiety & stress. I provide a safe place and skills that create “breathing room” to help people break free from the grips of their anxiety, frustration, and personal and relational stress.
