Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you're okay - you feel it.

Everyone is born without shame. We arrive naturally curious & creative with a clear & healthy sense of self. Then disturbing things happen that change us. Memories & feelings get frozen in our brains and change us. This can happen from devastating events, like accidents, molestation, loss, and violence & also from hurtful patterns in families or school that erode one's sense of worth, like bullying, humiliation or rejection. Adverse life events & trauma can change our self-esteem, impact relationships & create unhealthy coping behaviors. EMDR is an evidence-based, proven treatment that can help make lasting change.

Are you tired of being unable to do the things you want to do, but repeatedly do the things you do not want to do? Are your best intentions producing the kind of relational fruit you desire in your relationships? The invisible pain from the emotional, relational, and spiritual realm activates the same region of your brain that is under physical pain. The need for proper attention and treatment for this invisible pain is as urgent and necessary as physical pain. Your pain will be properly metabolized through validation and comfort and ready to be resurrected as wisdom, strength, and compassion

Dr. Thomas believes that the goals of therapy are: symptom removal (initially), alleviation of pain, facilitation of personal growth, basic character change, and to remove obstacles blocking individuals’ paths. She subscribes to German psychoanalyst, Karen Horney’s view that the human being has an inbuilt propensity toward self-realization. If obstacles are removed, the individual will develop into a mature, fully realized adult, just as an acorn will develop into an oak tree. So, a therapist’s job is identifying and removing the obstacles. Everyone has a yearning for self-realization.

This past year has brought many of us face to face with ourselves. You may find yourself haunted by the past. Or perhaps with fewer distractions, you have "gotten in your head" and are find that you don't know how to be still with yourself. For many, relationships and finances have been strained beyond their limits. This year has brought extremes. Some people find themselves without a job or purpose and too much time on their hands. Others are being pushed to their limit in multiple roles such as working from home while trying to managing their children's online education. Most everyone is looking for some relief right now.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces suffering and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.
