Asking for help is the first step on your journey to health. Acknowledging you can’t do everything on your own, is an important step toward healing, If you are looking for help with your struggles with anxiety, fears, depression, loss, and/or grief, there is help. The ways in which we cope in the world are influenced by how we perceive the world. Asking for help, and getting a fresh perspective, is often profound step in moving toward change. As you harness your strengths, you will be able to take on bigger challenges and achieve your goals.
As a practical and interactive therapist, my treatment approach is to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to help each client. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to achieve life goals. As a certified EMDR Therapist, I use the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Model to inform treatment choices. The AIP model proposes that trauma and gets stored and stuck in our brains and becomes the basis for our perceptions and behavior. I see therapy as a way to create new perceptions and adaptive associations which will facilitate healing.
I also teach this healing method to mental health practioners. I want to have my colleagues able to give this type of empowerment of their clients. It is more important than ever to offer the right tools to our clients.
To the ones that come that help show me what hurts in order to be healed. To the people who are on this healing journey with me that are not allowing me to stay small but are forcing growth that comes bursting forth to heal the wound that binds us together.
