I am a Somatic Experiencing therapist that specializes in trauma, depression, anxiety and stress. Accepting new clients!
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , MI
Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented method for healing. PTSD and other stress disorders center around uncovering the untold story of the nervous system. The story of the nervous system is one that is rarely heard, yet provides an infinite amount of resources. By only focusing on the experience of the mind, we ignore the story of the nervous system and disconnect ourselves from the messages our body is trying to send us.
Whether you identify as someone who has an addiction or are questioning if substances are a problem in your life, you have come to the right place. Understanding the thoughts, feelings and triggers that contribute to substance use is one of the first steps towards healing. Therapy is a non-judgmental place to explore your relationship to substances. The use of substances typically stems from the drive for reward or relaxation. Therapy can be utilized in conjunction with 12 step programs.
People do not get better shaming themselves. I work alongside clients to navigate mental, physical, emotional, and/or spiritual barriers to help them find balance and contentment. Recovery and freedom from pain and suffering is possible. My treatment approach is interactive, eclectic, non-judgmental and strengths based. I utilize a multitude of modalities including psychoeducation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
