Consider this for a moment: how many times per day do you hear yourself say, "a part of me thinks/feels this but another part of me thinks/feels that”? Indeed, we all consist of “parts” - aspects of ourselves that formed in response to life experiences, beliefs, and felt emotions. Here’s the twist: the parts we resist and exile in ourselves have a way of resurfacing, and often manifest as undesirable behaviors with unwanted outcomes. In other words, these parts react automatically to situations. and often get us in trouble. For this reason we stay stuck, and parts of ourselves remain unfulfilled and unattended.

My perspective embraces self-awareness as one of the main instruments in helping free up trauma. Fuller awareness removes the fear of the unknown, gives us distance from distress and the ability to disconnect from automatic behaviors that perpetuate negative reactions and feelings. In the words of international trauma experts “its teaching our clients how to focus on new stimuli they normally might not have noticed...” with “conscious inhibition of old responses”(Jana Fisher and Pat Ogden, March 2011).

Sometimes messages or experiences from the past, faulty beliefs, or challenging relationships keep us stuck and out of touch with our well- being. Couples are helped when each has an opportunity to feel heard, and when early attachment styles and emotions underlying the problem can be better understood.

Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy has helped me tremendously in working with couples and individuals. I enjoy couples counseling, helping partners to see their trauma in the marriage. Teaching couples about their negative cycle and how to work through their pain. I believe that trauma is the root of our issues and why we use our dysfunction in dealing with life. Depression, anxiety, addiction can all be linked back to childhood traumas or other life traumatic events. I also work with individuals as well as teenagers.
