Going through trauma can leave you with many unwanted thoughts and feelings, such as negative self beliefs (I'm worthless, not good enough, or a bad person). You can feel anxious, angry, depressed, and unenthusiastic. Your body may sense tension, muscle aches, and fatigue. Your sleep is not restful. Your past is ever before you and you want relief. EMDR Therapy can help! I help people using EMDR therapy, an effective treatment for anxiety, PTSD, trauma, and just getting over your past.

Mental health counseling is a valuable service that many people benefit from by processing their thoughts, feelings and actions and ultimately finding solutions for their challenges. It is not easy to take the first step due to the stigma about seeking mental health services and/or self-doubt. If you or your loved one is needing extra help to navigate life’s challenges, seek help or resources to make life a bit easier.

You wake up with that anxious feeling of knots in your stomach, your heart feeling heavy. You had trouble sleeping and you are tired, overwhelmed, and feeling like crap. You can’t breathe – it feels like you are suffocating. You think to yourself, today will be the day I fall apart, today will be the day that everyone realizes all my flaws and my mistakes, today will be the day I lose it all. Those worries replay like movies in your mind. You are tired of finding moments to cry in secret so you tell yourself, "I just need to work harder."

The decision to seek out therapy is not always an easy one. However, finding a therapist that provides support, encouragement and techniques that can improve how you feel and function in life is worth the effort. If you are feeling overwhelmed in your relationships, work, or are experiencing low self-esteem that may cause you to use poor coping skills, take a moment and imagine yourself feeling hopeful. I am a strong believer in addressing the whole person (body, mind, soul).

Sometimes in life we find ourselves feeling lost or stuck or maybe we have experienced a great loss or trauma. While friends and family can offer support and solace during these times, developing a relationship with the right therapist can offer a unique and safe space to work through these problems in a way that can’t always be done with loved ones. I take an integrative and non-judgmental approach with my clients and create a safe and nurturing environment for my clients to explore and grow. While I tend to take a holistic and person-centered approach to my work, I am also trained in CBT, DBT, as well as EMDR.

My ideal Client would be someone struggling with very difficult circumstances in their interpersonal life. They may feel that things even look hopeless from their perspective. However; the Client comes to the first session and receives 30 CC's of hope, insight, and encouragement. They leave that first session with a clear understanding of their own personal goals that this therapist was able to help the Client discover. The objectives would be then identified from the Client's strengths, values, morals, and their own principles.
