I specialize in working with adults who have experienced trauma of various kinds (illness, accidents, assault, loss) in childhood or adulthood. I have worked for many years with women and men who have experienced childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, or adult sexual assault. Recurring thoughts and images about the trauma, or less conscious feelings such as fear and worthlessness, or difficulties letting anyone get close, can persist, even if it happened long ago. My focus in therapy is to help you work through these experiences so they no longer prevent you from living more fully in your present life.

Many of us feel anxious and overwhelmed in our daily lives. Most of the time, we have the tools and support to effectively deal with our anxiety. However, there can be times when we have difficulty managing the stress on our own. Work, family, finances, health issues and other stress can trigger unresolved trauma from our past which often leads to heightened anxiety. Research shows that chronic stress negatively impacts our health and relationships. Whether your anxiety is caused by past traumatic experiences, or a recent life events, we can work together to improve your ability to cope and live a more peaceful life.

Never wanted to home school your kids. Me neither. If you wanted to be a teacher, that’s what you would have become. Go teachers! Yet here you are wrangling with the internet, Zoom meetings, Google Classroom and a load of other things just to keep your kids in school and prevent them from falling behind. And maybe they're behind already. It should be a comfort that all kids may be behind, but it's totally not. If that’s not enough, you get to feel guilty about how much more screen time you're allowing just to get anything done. And let’s not even get started on juggling work outside the home if that’s on your plate. It is a lot.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Westfield, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Westfield are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Westfield. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Westfield

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Westfield you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Westfield and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Westfield or family therapy in Westfield.
