In childhood our brain's are developing and learning. It is so common for some type of relationship or trauma to cause a child to blame themselves for a bad thing happening. This often results in the development of a core belief of, "I am not bad or I am not good enough." This lie can be challenged and I'd like to help you develop a new way of looking at things that is more accurate and healthy.
In 11 years I have gained a ton of knowledge and tools. Based on what you are presenting with I'll be reaching into this bag of info and skills to find ways to help you as an individual.
11 years experience working directly with addicts in early recovery. This is my specialty. Addiction is a disease of the areas of the brain that affect choice. The brain has linked the drug with survival. It is a tough battle to fight, but I would love to team up with you in the fight.
I worked for 11 years at a large rehab facility as a therapist. This is my forte. I know what it takes to get sober and to stay sober. This is no small task, but I would love to work with you and help you in the battle. No judgement and complete acceptance. Let's get to work on fighting this thing.
Anxiety is our primitive brain's attempt to deal with an attack from a threat. I have always experienced anxiety and I understand how hard it is to get control of the brain. However, it is very possible and I'd like to help you gain understanding of the origin and to find ways to cope with anxiety. A little anxiety is a great motivator, we just want to keep it at a manageable level.
Depression is a lack of purpose and a lack of hope. We can work together to create and action plan to help you climb out of the hole that is depression. I have experienced depression through my life and understand how hard it is to get the momentum to fight depression, but I also know it is possible.
