Your friends tell you that you got it so together. And you do. You can go anywhere, carry on a conversation, smile, and appear to have a great time. But that's just it. It's just an appearance. There's nothing behind it. You're just going through the motions. You're working so hard to feel something to put on the front. You remember what it was like when you had to put on your happy face when you left the house because no one was allowed to know what was going on at home. You didn't think that would happen again when you left home and became an adult. But here you are doing the same thing again. Hoping for different results.
Change is hard, and the thought of doing something different makes your stomach churn. You want to show up for yourself but feel stuck in old patterns that just don't work anymore because they never did? No more masks - we've got this! You can be who YOU are without worrying about what other people might think or say. It takes courage and you have that.
If you are ready to start your journey, you can make the change. This time you can “pony" up with a therapist and maybe a real pony to find a way to like the person in the mirror and show up in your life as you want. Together we will find a way together to tame and calm the thoughts and get rid of the mask. Contact me to schedule a consultation.

For depression and trauma, I will normally work with you for about 8-12 sessions using either Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or EMDR. I will include other empirical therapies that we discuss. Most patients will notice a gradual change in symptoms and struggle within the first month and then consistent improvement with continued treatment.

I often use EMDR to help clients with a wide variety of struggles such as trauma complex trauma and equestrian sports performance. During the first session, we will discuss what you want to achieve during therapy. Then we will discuss what will be the most effective way to achieve the changes desired; a combination of EMDR animal-assisted therapy and cognitive behavior therapy such as ACT.
