Are you struggling with worry, racing thoughts, or overwhelm? Are you feeling at a loss with your child's big emotions, meltdowns, worry or concerned about the scary situation they experienced? Does it impact your sleep? Are you noticing you freezing or panicking in everyday situations? Is your child is panicking? Together, we'll work on rewiring the brain for calmness. I specialize in reducing those racing thoughts and worry while teaching effective skills to manage symptoms leading to a sense of safety. Clients gain the skills to control their thoughts, manage their emotions and get back to living the life they want.
I am an expert at treating children & adults that have experienced trauma or are struggling with severe worry, anxiety and OCD. I have helped numerous clients that came in feeling hopeless, scared, exhausted & overwhelmed. Children & adults often expressed feeling "out of control," but end treatment feeling in control with a sense of security.
It is scary to reach out for help. Many people feel like it won't make a difference or fear being judged. Study upon study shows that people that have experienced horrendous experiences or suffer from severe anxiety & OCD CAN and in fact WILL make progress. With good, effective therapy & a willingness to fully engage change is expected. Call or email TODAY!
