I understand when betrayal affects you and your family that if feels like the ground has been pulled out from under you.
Families are greatly impacted by betrayal, infidelity and sex addiction. As parents struggle to orient themselves to a new reality in the face of betrayal, it can be overwhelming and painful for a parent to recognize the immediate and future impact on their children. Well meaning parents can unintentionally make serious mistakes in managing the family during this painful and confusing time. You may have questions at this time such as “How is the tension in the household affecting our child?" and “Is our child internalizing emotional pain that we can't see?”

When someone is diagnosed with a serious illness, they have no idea what it means for their life, their future, their family, or their career. They have endless questions and nowhere to get answers. Just navigating the medical world feels like learning a whole new language in a foreign city. There are so many life changes, it can feel extremely overwhelming.

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.

As a teacher, author, education researcher, and therapist I have seen how small changes in family dynamics, a marriage or a single person's sense of well-being can make a huge difference.
I work with clients struggling with severe trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety and a variety of life challenges. I have seen many learn to sleep deeply, break free of repetitive worrying thoughts, get excited about life and increase their health and energy. I feel honored that people share their stories with me and have found that no situation is ever without hope. Life can be so much better. If you choose to share with me, we will find a way together.

As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come.

We all go through difficult times and face adversity. Whether you're reliving the past, feeling stuck in the present, or anxious about the future, life can feel like an uphill battle. The same can be said for our relationships. No matter how hard we try to feel understood by our loved ones, we can get stuck in negative patterns and endless arguments that leave us feeling frustrated, resentful, lonely, and hopeless. I believe we are all born with the innate capacity to overcome life's most difficult experiences and when provided a safe space to share and explore, we can access our resilience and truest selves.
