Counselor in Troy, MI
Anxiety is a major issues in our modern society and I believe that a holistic approach can be most comprehensive. I strive to help my clients understand why their bodies are reacting to real or perceived danger, research based interventions they can implement, and possible thought distortions contributing to anxiety. Meditation, breath work, and EFT may also be introduced to support overall wellbeing.
When we experience trauma, our body stores this information & we can often re-experience reactions to trauma long past the initial event. This can cause distress, frustration and anxiety regarding lingering traumatic reactions. I aim to empower my clients to understand why & how their body experiences and stores trauma. Through a combination of talk therapy, experiential work, and trauma narratives, client's develop a new understanding of the role the brain & body play in trauma and how to heal.
I specialize in working with women in recovery from narcissistic or toxic abuse relationships. I help clients learn how to trust their "gut" after years of gaslighting. A focus on healthy decision making, re-learning who you are, and healing from trauma helps client to move away from abusive relationships and closer to the live that they desire. Healthy relationship building, generational trauma healing and boundary setting are also practiced in treatment.
Let's deal with your trauma on a deeper level. Learn how and why your body reacts the way that it does and work to fully integrate your experiences.
Mindfulness has become some what of a buzz term lately, however, learning and practicing mindfulness has been shown to have both physical and psychological benefits. We will learn and practice the tenets of mindfulness, practice skills and strategies and go deeper into how to be fully present and experience life.
Often we get off track in our relationships and need assistance bringing our relationship back to it's foundation. I use various couples techniques to assist clients with identifying their personal goals for their relationship, learning how to communicate and listen effectively, express and meet each other's needs, and speak each other's love language.
