***NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS*** Sometimes you find yourself preferring to be alone because you feel unhappy, sad or loss. You feel defeated and overwhelmed by the stressors you have to face everyday. You feel helpless and like your life is out of your control. NOW, Imagine feeling like you are starting to have control over things that are happening in your life. You're not allowing past, current or worry of future experiences to control how you handle your life right now. You have a sense of who you are, who you want to be and how to achieve personal goals. Now, you have found the COURAGE to change things that are not healthy for you.
I can help you with your journey by providing a safe, nonjudgmental and authentic space to build a trusting relationship. I specialize in trauma and as a certified EMDR clinician, we can touch on those harmful experiences that make you feel STUCK. I also provide an approach of empowerment for my clients to take back power and control over your OWN life.
It takes courage to ask for help, congratulations on achieving the first step towards the healing process. Learn more about me on my website.
