Do you find yourself feeling fine one moment and suddenly you're overwhelmed by distressing thoughts or confusing emotions? Do you feel like your body has been hijacked by sensations that you can't identify or pinpoint? Do you find yourself disconnected from your life and those things you once enjoyed doing? Have you ever experienced or seen something in the past that now invades your life on a daily basis? Have you ever just wanted to hide away from everything? I know that feeling and I'm telling you right now, you're not alone.

Your brain is a time machine. Anxiety throws you into the future, and it is never a future you actually want, yet you spend so much time worrying, catastrophizing, and mentally preparing for atrocities that are not likely to occur. The same goes for depression, shame and guilt, you are pulled back in time by old negative beliefs that weren’t yours to begin with. Hyper vigilance, flashbacks, nightmares, dissociation, these too may keep you in the past. Kurt Vonnegut’s famous science fiction novel, “Slaughter House-five,” describes a soldier in the war zone becoming “unstuck in time.” This is what trauma feels like for many people.

You may be seeking therapy for many reasons, and it can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy. As your therapist, I will engage you in becoming comfortable with exploring your inner self. My work with you is aimed at increasing your awareness of processes that lead to suffering and ultimately increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction in life. We will explore what is working for you and where you get stuck, how you relate to others and yourself, and your coping mechanisms, which all affect how you're feeling on a daily basis. Learning to understand and flow with your emotions will probably be a focus in our work together.

Finding the right therapist from a website is difficult, which is why I offer phone or in-person consultations. It takes courage to address challenges such as relationships, personal problems, or general unhappiness. Your success in treatment will depend on your readiness to open up and my authentic presence that will help create a safe space for you. Together we will work on identifying, experiencing and expanding your capacity to tolerate all ranges of feelings. You will become more conscious of your limiting patterns while developing healthy ones as your sense of a genuine and stronger self emerges.

Have you been in several relationships that have ended poorly? Do you wonder why most of the people in your life are never there when you need them to be? Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are.

Being human isn't always easy, and when life gets complicated and becomes challenging, therapy can help offer tools to navigate through a crisis while providing you a deeper exploration of yourself. Problems in relationships often come from old ways of coping that served you in the past, but now may be keeping you from feeling fulfilled and satisfied with your life. I believe our most challenging times can also be our greatest opportunity for change. Healing is possible, and therapy is a journey towards self-discovery where you get to explore the landscape of your own mind.
