Das Leben kann machmal einfach schwierig sein. Du füllst Dich überschwemmt, überfördert, ängstlich, traurig, oder ärgerlich. Du magst Dich nicht. Du kommst irgendwie nicht voran im Leben. Es gibt Verhaltensmüster in Deinen Beziehungen die immer wieder auftauchen, ohne dass Du es hinbekommst, sie zu verändern. Vergangene Erfahrungen kommen zwischen Dir und Deiner Fähigkeit, mit dem heutigen Leben klar zu kommen. Deine Überlebungsstrategien bringen eher Probleme als Erleichterung, aber Du weißt nicht, wie Du damit aufzuhören sollst.
Mein Ansatz zeilt in erster Linie darum, die Quellen Deiner verschiedenen Lebensmüster ans Licht zu bringen, damit Du sie leichter verändern kannst. Ich nehme auch Einflüsse von Achtsamkeit, kognitive Verhaltenstherapie, und Erfahrungsorientieren Therapien an.
Counseling ist für mich eine zweite Karriere. Ich habe meinen Anteil an den Höhen und Tiefen des Lebens gekannt, und Psychotherapie hat mir sehr geholfen, als ich in einem sehr schweren Zustand war. Meine persönliche Erfahrung ist jetzt meine wichtigste Ressource, die ich für Dein Wohlbefinden einsetzten kann. Du hast schon den ersten Schritt genommen.
Do you have your emotions, or do they have you? Depression, anxiety, fear of abandonment, recurrent relationship problems, low self-esteem/self-hatred, substances...Any of this sound familiar? My focus is on trauma and early attachment injuries. I work with teenagers and adults, especially people with disabilities (including Deaf and hard of hearing) and international aid workers/expats. My clients want to connect with their authentic selves, free of the gunk from the past, so they can get out there and live for real, in touch with their emotions but not ruled by them. All abilities, races, creeds, sexual and gender identities.
I like to help people get into the roots of why they act and feel how they do, so that we can clear them out for good. I primarily use the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), am trained in EMDR and employ mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and good old-fashioned listening. We'll talk some and also work with the body and guided visualizations.
Just getting to this stage can be a huge leap of faith. I'm here to hold hope for you until you can do so for yourself. I'm not the soft-and-squishy type, but I certainly won't look down on you. We're in this together. I do this work because I have been helped enormously by therapy and I want everyone to have the chance to benefit as I did. This stuff works!
