I think every person deserves an individualized approach. Not every technique or tool works for every person. There is no "one size fits all" answer here. Your experiences are unique - your pain is unique - your grief is unique - so healing will also be unique. I have extensive experience in working with trauma, abuse, grief, depression, and anxiety. I also specialize in women's issues and maternal mental health. With my background comes a ton of different tools, so to speak, that we can use to create your own unique path to healing. Of all the tools I carry with me, though, I have found that the therapeutic relationship is the most powerful piece of the puzzle. Without a trusting, connected relationship, how can a therapist know enough about you and your world to offer guidance, support, and methods that will actually work and decrease your pain versus adding stress to your life? There is also something extraordinarily powerful in being seen and heard and believed and valued.
