It happened again. The hint of sarcasm. The blatant disrespect. “Why do I put up with this?” you ask yourself over and over. When it happens, your mind is screaming on the inside, yet there you stand. Frozen. Most of the time with a smile on your face. You may as well be invisible. They don’t see the hard work, the anxiety, the struggle, the loneliness. Often you don’t notice it either as you stay so incredibly busy…except for on those days when there may as well be an elephant standing on your chest. It’s heavy, and you couldn’t move if you wanted to. The nagging voice inside blames it all on you. Worst of all you believe it.

Most emotional and behavioral difficulties stem from traumatic events (recent or past). The symptoms of trauma can include nightmares, triggered memories, edginess, avoidance, explosive anger and slow-burning irritability, anxiety, depression and more. EMDR therapy is an evidenced-based therapy and a gold-standard treatment for trauma.

With children, toys are the words, and play is the language. In the playroom, the child has the power to work through life experiences and feelings. Play therapy is foundational in helping clients express feelings freely through drawing, painting, or sand tray without fear. My counseling goal is to connect with clients of all ages, build self-esteem, and find tools they can use each day to overcome life's challenges.
