Life's transitions and changes can be difficult to navigate. Having someone to talk to and support you can make all the difference. Sometimes unresolved trauma can impede your everyday life and keep you stuck. Trauma could be contributing to conflicts in your relationships that continue to repeat over and over with the same dysfunctional interactional patterns. Becoming aware of your triggers and interactional patterns allows you to learn to recognize them and replace them with more positive and productive tools. Having support and encouragement along the way helps you to use new tools and ways of communicating.
I am trauma informed and offer a compassionate and skilled approach to treating trauma using EMDR (rapid eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). EMDR is an extensively researched and effective psychotherapy method to help clients recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences. EMDR helps facilitate the natural healing process we all have.
Through my years of experience working with people who are in crisis or are living with constant trauma responses, I have learned respect for each person's process. We will work together towards empowering and supporting you as you move forward on your own path and journey to a more joyful and richer life. You bring the challenges and I will bring the tools
