Have you been struggling with anxiety, loneliness, confusion, or grief in this time of uncertainty? Do you feel the swirling emotions around you and have trouble controlling your own? I can help. I specialize in supporting people who have experienced trauma or just have that nagging sense in the back of their mind that something isn’t quite right. I enjoy supporting people on developing self-esteem and strengthening their relationships.

Welcome, my name Dorene Paul and I am a licensed therapist and marriage therapist. I have had the honor of practicing therapy for over 20 years, working with adults, couples and youth with a wide variety of issues. In my experience, each person comes to therapy with a unique set of experiences, feelings, issues, gifts, goals, therefore I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, from cognitive to current psychodynamic approaches and EMDR for those dealing with past trauma. In therapy I am your companion and counselor on a deeply meaningful journey.

I specialize in working with people struggling with anxiety, attachment issues, depression, existential issues such as finding life purpose and meaning. I work well with people who have experienced childhood emotional neglect and find themselves struggling as adults in their relationships. Often these adverse experiences we have leave us with difficult patterns to make sense of in our adult lives. Inner emptiness, guilt, shame, anger, lack of self-compassion, difficulty identifying and expressing emotions, and a feeling of being different can be indicators that these old patterns still have a tight hold on your daily functioning.

We all need to be seen, understood, taken sincerely, and met with warmth and respect. Psychotherapy is a special kind of relationship that is uniquely suited to meeting this need, offering a space for healing and a platform for growth. I can support you to discover who you are, who you are becoming, and what hidden obstacles lie in the shadow. It is my hope that, working together, you can develop: a sense of feeling safe and vital in your body; a sense of belonging in the world; enduring and significant connections with others; a purposeful livelihood; and a meaningful and fulfilling life, imbued with freedom, love and artistry.

I’ve had training in various modalities but ultimately use an eclectic approach emphasizing cognitive behavior therapy. I operate from the position that our thoughts strongly influence our moods and actions. My clients will gain a more intuitive understanding of themselves, better process their situation and consider which course of action makes the most sense. With some flexibility, a healthier perspective, and the right support, clients find that they are much more resilient and that situations don’t have to be as detrimental. My goal as your therapist is to support you on your path called life.

I invite you to visit my website drehrhart.com for a more complete sense of how I can help you, or you and your partner, who I am, and how I work. In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

You deserve to feel at home within yourself, your relationships, and your environment. A psychological home is not a particular physical place. It's being at home within yourself and your life, where there's a sense of comfort and belonging that you can carry with you wherever you go. If you choose to work with me, our therapy can become a kind of “home” that we co-construct together. You'll be supported to gain more clarity around your feelings and behavioral patterns, as well as develop more freedom and agency around your choices about work, life, and relationships.

Making the choice to seek support and guidance is very powerful as it means that you are looking to create a shift within yourself, and what you are currently doing is no longer working for you. When we experience life's challenges and transitions, we can feel overwhelmed, confused, and stuck in the negative cycle of our circumstances and deeply established emotional patterns. I will work collaboratively with you to create forward movement in your life. And I am passionate about helping folks break longstanding patterns of intergenerational trauma, and ultimately experience new ways to be and feel in the world.

The human response to trauma is complex. Intertwined systems react - the mind, body, and spirit - attempting to protect the self from fragmentation. I specialize in working with trauma (workplace, relationship, childhood trauma), helping you put the pieces together, regardless of how that trauma is manifesting in your life. I am a client-centered trauma-focused therapist who focuses on holistic wellness (mind, body, spirit). We work together to help you unravel your system, achieving balance, wholeness, and authenticity.

My style is warm, gentle, and nonjudgmental. I mostly practice in a psychodynamic psychotherapy frame. This means that we will use our unique therapeutic relationship to learn about patterns of managing feelings and relationships that likely helped you in your early environment, but may be getting in your way today. With greater awareness of these patterns, we can further make use of our relationship as a safe opportunity for you to test out new ways of managing emotions and relating to people. We also have the option of judicious use of medication to address symptoms that may be impeding your life and relationships, if desired.
