Announcement icon We are offering video and phone sessions for your convenience both during and outside of the pandemic!
We are a group with several available therapists. Dealing with stress and trauma causes problems. You can be calm one moment, and then irritable, sad, upset in the next. It's an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you feeling guilty, full of shame, and wanting to get out of the cycle that you feel you've been stuck in for years. You want to treat your kids with the love you have for them. You want to have an amazing intimate relationship with your partner. You want to feel good at work and feel free to experience new things without anxiety. It's all possible. You can feel better with therapy.
We first start by talking about whatever you feel ready to talk about. This helps me to build an understanding of patterns and history to drive our work together forward. During the next phase, I may do some teaching and skills while talking through stories to reduce symptoms while making long-lasting changes and exploring life themes.
It can be hard to imagine feeling better is possible. I understand that and have been in that exact place before. I have had the thoughts, "Will they get me? Can they really help?" or even, "No one can help me". Even though you may not be sure, reach out by phone or email and we can answer any questions you have.
