You are doing the best you can. If you could snap your fingers and stop the obsessive thoughts and worries you would, right? If could make yourself quit retelling negatives stories about yourself and your life, that would have already happened, right? The truth is life is as challenging as it is remarkable and respecting how trauma, abuse, neglect, or illness is showing up in your body and experience is paramount to healing. Trauma can show up as patterns of protection that keep us stuck in feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, hopelessness, and fear. And keep us from enjoying secure and loving relationships with others.

In our culture there is little space devoted to exploring illness, death and dying, and grief. We often turn away from the impending reality of death because it can be frightening to think about our own mortality. This serves us well until we experience a medical diagnosis or trauma that changes the way we live in the world. My role as a therapist is to join with you on this journey of exploration, facing complicated emotions that arise, like feeling alone, uncertain, angry, or sad.

As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.

Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.
