The sun goes down and you're desperate for sleep. Unfortunately, this is when your thoughts speed up. You're constantly thinking. You think about how much you think. Your mind replays the day's interactions with others, criticizing yourself, and reflecting on how people have hurt you. You're desperate for a break from the constant anxiety, but don't know how to find the peace that you want so badly.

I understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.

My therapeutic practice involves a gentle, safe and collaborative approach in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and early relational wounds. We accomplish this process through psychodynamic theory and body oriented methods such as Somatic Experiencing which integrates neuroscience, mindfulness, and attachment theory. The nervous system is the pathway between the mind and the body where many of our past experiences and feelings are stored and often "stuck" causing emotional and physical pain. The goal of therapy is to release these unaccessed areas and strengthen one's sense of self, find resiliency and tolerance and have the capacity to build solid interpersonal relationships.

If this is your situation, I understand how helpless you may feel. Bullying is a serious issue that can affect an entire family. I understand the impacts of bullying, and the effects that it can have on the victim. Those who are bullied can be impacted physically, emotionally, and relationally, which is why I believe that helping children heal from bullying is just as important as bully prevention.

The challenges of growing up in today's rapidly changing society are enormous. Children need to be equipped with skills for survival and growth that were never before imagined. I focus on teaching self-healing and self-control techniques that empower youth to develop the emotional skills necessary for a happy and successful life and realize their potential throughout their lifetime. Using the positive power of their imagination, children learn to reduce stress, deal effectively with anger and frustration, reduce stomachaches, headaches, and tics, cope with divorce and death, reduce parental and sibling conflicts, increase concentration, sleep peacefully, and more.

I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life.

With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.
