Psychotherapist - LMHP
You might be experiencing one of these: gnawing anxiety in your chest that just won’t leave you, dominates your thoughts, is changing how you live. Or the circling, dark thoughts of depression, where there is no pleasure in anything and everything is hopeless. Or maybe the effects of past, buried trauma have become unmanageable, and how you used to cope is not working. Or, you have lost someone you love, and life now feels unwanted and impossible. Or despite others’ complaints, you can’t conceive of going without either alcohol, drugs, porn, food, or relationships to feel normal or valuable, to get through the day with less pain.
I can support you during intensely difficult times like these, or to address something more subtle. Primarily, I offer clients what I hope they will gradually offer themselves: non-judgmental, friendly curiosity about what they feeling, thinking, experiencing in the moment. Also, I offer EMDR therapy, other mindfulness-based interventions, and more.
I know that we can only become aware and change when we are able, willing, and ready. So, I offer my clients patience; I know change takes time. I encourage, offer input, and gently push when called for. But I want clients to practice hearing and responding to themselves. Please contact me if you’d like to schedule an initial session.
