Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

Are you experiencing anxiety, having difficulty concentrating due to fear, upsetting thoughts, or unwelcomed physical (somatic) sensations? Are you taken by surprise with Intense and disturbing emotional reactions that seem out of place with the present situation? Do relationships trigger responses that you regret or feel out of control in expressing? These responses are the result of trauma - whether developmental trauma (trauma due to painful and/or abusive experiences in childhood) or trauma that is a result of a specific incident.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

It’s no secret. Many boys hate the idea of therapy or even just talking about their feelings. I’ve been working almost exclusively with boys (ages 5-18) and their families for over 15 years. If your son and family feel overwhelmed or distant from each other, I take a fresh look at your family’s unique strengths and build on these to work through conflict, reconnect, and re-establish joy as a daily practice. My work is driven by the latest research in neurobiology.

Maybe it's time to stop trying to think our way out of anxiety. “If I do this, I'll be ok ” or “Once I accomplish that and that other thing happens, then I’ll finally be ok”. Does it work? No it doesn't. It might give us a brief sense of relief that gets quickly replaced by the next wave of anxiety. Yet for some strange reason we keep practicing mental gymnastics in a futile attempt to calm the mind, only agitating it more. It's like we keep banging our heads agains a wall in an attempt to get rid of a headache. Are you ready to try something that works? Then let me tell you about how I work.
