I work with clients who are suffering from Psychogenic Pain, or more commonly known as TMS. Psychogenic pain goes hand-in-hand with mental health concerns. Research suggests between 30 to 50% of individuals with chronic pain also have anxiety or depression. Sleep disturbances, grief, and anger issues are also common among people with chronic pain. It can be frustrating to hear, "Nothing is wrong with you" by doctors, yet the physical symptoms still linger.
I work with people struggling with self esteem, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, addiction as well as lack of motivation and fear of success. Working with me you will choose the direction you want to go, while accessing different behavior change strategies to create your own one-of-a-kind road to success.
Using alcohol/drugs is not because you are bad or weak; it is because you are trying to cope with stress, uncomfortable feelings or physical/emotional pain. Fear and shame can make it hard to ask for help. I provide a safe and supportive therapeutic experience that can help you understand your behavior and discover you have choices in your life.
