I am a trained EMDR clinician. EMDR is a proven treatment modality for trauma that can have great lasting effects on the body and your future. Give it a google and ask me questions, I'm happy to discuss what this could look like for us. EMDR works very well virtually and can really enhance your life if you struggle with distressing memories.
Have you ever taken a big breath, and felt more at peace? That's what mindfulness is all about - awareness; Of yourself in space, in the universe, in the room you're in right now. I talk a lot about how breathing and allowing time for yourself can change everything. I'm happy to show you, too.
CBT is all about finding the motivation for change. It's work in and outside of session. I'll teach you the skills, and you'll practice throughout the week. Many clients see results within 5 sessions.
You may be thinking, “Aren’t we all a little depressed?” Terms like depression are commonly tossed around to depict a general feeling of sadness. It might be time to talk when most days you feel there is a heavy cloud weighing you down. You may feel as though getting out of the bed in the morning is impossible, and completing everyday tasks is getting harder by the minute. I'll meet you there.
You only live one life and you want to enjoy it, but are you your own worst critic? It’s exhausting trying to keep up appearances and survive day to day. You’re often tired and you may find yourself easily irritated and always on edge, and COVID-19 sure isn’t helping. Maybe you're thoughts don't have an OFF switch, or you're experiencing anxiety or panic attacks. We can work with that.
In our space, you won't need to justify your existence or plead your case. If your stress is related to your sexuality or gender, we can talk about that. If you're struggling with issues that have nothing to do with your sexuality or gender we can talk about that too! In our space, you are free to be the most authentic you.
No one wakes up one day and decides to be a person with an addiction. If you're ready to address this part of you and how it has changed everything, I'm here for it. Let's get your life back.
