Physical symptoms ( Chronic pain , tension, fatigue, sleep issues etc.
I specialize in treating Trauma (single event, long-term and attachment) with experiential therapies, including EMDR & Somatic Experiencing. These interventions recognize the need to go beyond changing your thoughts and focus on helping people regulate the body sensations and emotions that continue to be experienced. For example: a person may know that a traumatic event is over and yet continue to feel the emotion of anxiety and the body sensation of muscle tension (never truly relaxing or feeling safe). This can activate an impulse to run away from situations, become angry/defensive or shut down (depressed/ avoidant/dissociative)

Together, we will identify your " pain points" through a Trauma-Informed lens and address them with a step-by-step, growth-oriented plan.
What now? Now that you have decided to seek therapy, you are likely in a place where you want to see change happen and are willing to do the work. You have also likely done what most people shy away from- put yourself out there and advocated for yourself. Now you have decided to not just tell people what you have been going through but are also committed to showing them that positive change can and will happen.
