Do you feel stuck in one or more aspects of your life? Perhaps you would like to feel more connection in your relationships and at work. Sometimes things may feel so overwhelming, we lose our direction, feel anxious, experience emotional and physical pain, and don't sleep well. It's easy to get caught up in the way we tell our story, shaping habits and patterns around the roles we play.

It takes a certain person to look for support, and I commend you on taking this first step. Life is challenging, and there are times when no matter how hard we try, things just don’t change. We often find ourselves spinning out of control feeling overwhelmed, scared, sad and tired… beyond tired, feeling alone, stuck and in pain, dealing with distressing thoughts, feelings and body symptoms. And the list goes on.

As a health psychologist, I specialize in the treatment of insomnia, chronic pain, stress/anxiety, and depression.
When it comes to our emotional health, many of us suffer in silence until things have become unmanageable. Unfortunately as children, we don't often get the emotional education that we feel we need; many of us are not taught how to notice, label, or effectively express our emotions. Therapy is a process in which you begin to explore your old patterns and habits, discern those that are no longer serving you, while equipping yourself with more helpful coping skills to add to your toolbox.

I believe in all people’s innate capacity to heal. To me, all symptoms that we experience whether it be chronic pain, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, etc can be explained by trauma. Trauma does not have to be big events. Trauma can be if we are not attuned to emotionally as children or if our parents have their own unprocessed trauma—this sort of trauma often leads to deep seeded beliefs that we are unloveable and bad. Our healing comes from teaching our parts that we are loveable and accepted just as we are.
