"Are you working towards a fulfilling life but feel stuck or overwhelmed? Are you hurting inside and unsure of where to turn? Most of our struggles stem from our relationships with others and we often need tools for healing these wounds. Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs. Utilizing Experiential approaches including EMDR, Brainspotting, inner parts work, and Somatic therapies we can heal the mind and body. "

"At Connections First we have faith in the power of connection: with your inner life and to the outer world through meaningful relationships. We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings. Much of our symptoms are the effects of emotional, psychological, and physical isolation and self-alienation which can even happen when we are surrounded by other people."

"Together we practice creating a base for an internal sense of safety and security. Relationships that build each other up in positive ways can help establish a safe attachment based relational foundation from which to grow. Healthy personal connections require practice, repetition and consistency. Apart from basic survival, people are hard-wired for relational connections. Being surrounded by and participating in supportive communities are mutually beneficial. Whatever beliefs help people to feel strong, seek hope for a better future, and assist each other and themselves in the process of healing are most valued and important."

"Living your best life is not always as clear of a path as we may wish it to be, but that does not minimize your ability to make healthy connections, be your authentic self, and exert your autonomy onto the world. Through self-exploration and self-compassion, we are all capable of un-learning and continually growing through life to find a sense of harmony and joy. Finding the strength and support to navigate through the chaos is no easy feat, but the ability to thrive resides in us all. Counseling can be the space you need to reconnect with yourself and explore what it means for you to have self-compassion and to live your truth. "
