I work with a variety of issues which can be helped by utilizing a therapy option I offer called EMDR therapy which can help with Grief/Loss, Depression, Anxiety-panic attacks, phobias, fears, Performance anxiety, Childhood trauma, Low self-esteem, Eating disorders, Traumatic Events-accidents, natural disasters, etc., Post-traumatic stress, Injury/Pain disorders/Chronic illness, Relationship problems, Worry, Trouble sleeping, Physical/Sexual/Emotional abuse, and Stress reduction.
Therapy for woman can be a place where you finally feel heard. Where the stress of being a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, etc. can be fully understood and embraced. Where you can explore the thoughts you have about yourself and how other's see you. We challenge the myths and lies so that you can grow your self worth and claim your true identity.
I have additional training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which can help you release potential barriers to grief adaptation. EMDR has been proven to be highly effective in treating grief and loss (including trouble sleeping, anxiety, traumatic memories, worry, and stress). If you would like to learn more about EMDR treatment you may visit http://emdria.site-ym.com/?page=emdr_therapy. I would be honored to help you process your loss.
I love working with courageous women who value self-exploration and who are open to creating lasting change in their life. It brings me absolute joy seeing women who are struggling with anxiety and shame find peace with being their authentic selves. When we work together, I want you to feel fully understood and heard. During therapy I offer new insights, support, motivate, and challenge when needed. I am filled with compassion and conviction to guide women toward a life you wholeheartedly love
