It’s normal that relationships change over time. It’s also normal to want the relationship you once had were you looked forward to being together and had a loving and trusting relationship. Relationships don’t come with “how to” manuals especially when you have been together for years. This is especially true when you have experienced a loss or there has been infidelity. Professional help is needed at that time. Don't wait until it's too late.
EMDR therapy facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and other adverse life experience to bring these to an adaptive resolution and improved functioning. Overwhelming, negative emotions and beliefs are reformulated, thereby freeing a person to be the best and fullest expression of themselves. Your experience of trauma can truly be something of the past.
My goal is to promote compassion, kindness, resilience, and well-being in our personal lives, our relationships, and our communities. In an individual’s mind, integration involves the linkage of separate aspects of mental processes such as thought with feeling, bodily sensation with logic. In a relationship, integration entails each person’s being respected for his or her autonomy and differentiated self while at the same time being linked to others in empathic communication.
I've worked in the field of abuse for over 26 years. I have seen first hand how complicated and intertwined abuse and failure in adulthood are. Thanks to neurobiology and psychology technique advancement you can unlock all of that history and put it to rest. Make it a memory instead of a problem you face every day and struggle to overcome. Learning to trust yourself and the world is possible. Don't let the past dictate your future. You can take control of it.
Anxiety can literally take your breath away. I've overcome anxiety and panic in my own life and have tools that put you back in control. There is no need for you to carry this stress anymore.

There are things I will teach you the first day of our work together.
