You may have experienced significant changes in your life, have endured trauma, and are doing your best to manage both life's demands and what had happened to you. You may find it difficult sometimes as the impact of your changed environments, sense of self, and relationships compete for your emotional attention. You may have been to therapy before, but continue searching for a more profound recognition and connection of your experiences. You may have immediate concerns you are looking to resolve but cannot shake the burden of long-standing issues.
If you have problems with anxiety, depression, loneliness, and difficulty with changes, I can help. I take the whole person, history, and context into consideration. I can work clinically with or without the medical diagnosis and examine the complex issues you face. Feel free to contact me for a 15-minute free consultation.
I use EMDR, counseling and/or art therapy to help you find relief and solutions appropriate for your current stage of life. My therapeutic orientation is psychodynamic, reflective, and insight-oriented. I can help you explore new goals, find clarity, and gain insight into your current situation to help you find relief that works for you.
