Sometimes we get get lost in dark emotions, repeating unhealthy patterns, unsure how to stop… With a counselor as your guide, you can develop new skills, insight and self awareness.
When life becomes out of control, overwhelming or just too meh, it’s time to get a fresh perspective. Working through emotions and learning new coping strategies can truly increase the quality of your life.
Our relationships can get off track, as we unconsciously repeat dysfunctional patterns we learned from our parents or previous relationships. What may feel like a failed relationship may really be a sign that it’s time to find healthier ways to give and receive love. Couples counseling can help you develop more honesty and intimacy with your partner and find a more authentic way to connect.
My role with couples looks more like coaching than counseling. Offering honest feedback and helping couples with communication can resolve unhealthy patterns.
Trauma is not easily or successfully treated with talk therapy, so in trauma work we focus on the less verbal areas of your brain where the trauma is stored. I am trained in EMDR and Brainspotting; therapies designed to help release trauma from the body and mind without extensively talking about it.
