Are you having trouble getting over a past shock or trauma? Are you frequently in overwhelm/collapse? Are you constantly bracing against danger, ready to fight or run away? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help. I specialize in working with people who have experienced being overwhelmed by events and experiences that have shaken their very foundations. I take time to assess your personal stress/trauma history and provide guidance and support to assist you in your recovery. I also help couples create sustained improvement in their relationship, creating more effective communication and fulfilling relationships.

When we are traumatized we can tend to isolate and be mistrustful of others and sometimes ashamed, as if we are to blame for the hurt that we have experienced. I know this is very painful. I help people to heal that pain. I work with individuals, couples and groups.

Pauline Wakeham's Groups

Mindful Self-Compassion

Self-Compassion is a way to train the heart and Mind to respond to life's difficult moments with kindness and compassion rather than self-criticism and judgment. It can be learned by anyone, it provides emotional strength and resilience, makes it easier to admit our shortcomings and motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves. This is an 8 week, empirically supported training program, based on the groundbreaking research of Kristen Neff, Ph.D and Chris Germer, Ph.D.
