I enjoy helping others who struggle with relationship issues, perfectionism, procrastinating, codependency, trauma, and setting boundaries.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Hendersonville, TN
A common side effect of early childhood emotional neglect/trauma, codependency is treatable. Getting relief from excessive caretaking of others can free up space in your mind for your own life goals and for other things you care about. The antidote to codependency is boundaries, but learning when and how to set boundaries can take time and considerable guided effort.
I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy to help with the symptoms caused by wounds from traumatic events and stuck thoughts associated with those. PTSD can result from all kinds of events and often impacts people who had difficult childhoods in addition to those you lived through dangerous situations and life threatening experiences.
I use a combination of talk therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) to treat the symptoms, associated negative thoughts, and situations surrounding depression. With depression, changing negative thoughts and getting stuck thoughts unstuck is essential to getting relief.
As a trauma-focused therapist, I seek to locate the underlying experiences which are leading to the current stuck thoughts, fears, and assumptions. By reprocessing those, we can give you relief from feeling stuck and afraid.
I believe that people need their therapist to be empathic and on their side. This means that I will always honor where you feel your journey needs to go and validate your experiences.
