Hi! I'm Holly and I'm here to help. I want to offer a non-judgmental listening ear along with a variety of options and skills to help you.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Aurora, CO
Identifying and challenging unhelpful thoughts and beliefs regarding trauma can provide a path to more freedom in our lives, and I like that CPT does not require us to relive the traumatic experiences in a drawn-out narrative.
I believe values are such an important part of who we are as people, and ACT helps us to notice and manage how we relate to our thoughts and feelings, and chose how to move forward based on the values we hold dear.
Relationships are integral to our lives, so I have attended levels 1, 2, and 3 of Gottman training so I can offer their well-researched interventions to couples, as well as to individuals who want to add skills to their interactions with partners and loved ones.
If you struggle with feelings of anxiety and self-judgment regarding your physical body's appearance or abilities, and feel overwhelmed and hopeless because of these painful feelings there are things we can work on together to help you find a more peaceful, kind, and functional way to relate to your body and food. I have worked in residential, partial hospitalization, and outpatient levels of care to treat eating disorders and body image concerns, and I want to share that experience to help you.
If you feel on edge, irritable, and like you just cannot with the intrusive thoughts I hear you. Trauma is such a painful experience, especially when it seems to not want to stay firmly put in the past like it's supposed to. I am here to listen, help you separate the unhelpful thoughts and judgments from the truth of your reality, and help you get back to living your life in the present with more vibrance and connection.
