EXPANDED SERVICES FOR COVID-19
"The greatest source of our suffering are the lies we believe about ourselves."
Bessel van der Kolk
This last year has been exceptionally challenging with the coronavirus. There is not one of us that have not been affected by it. We’re all on a spectrum of its impact – anywhere from changes to our routines, the sense of isolation, all the way to the trauma of losing a loved one. This last year has caused a lot of strain in relationships.
It is extremely normal for this pandemic to bring up old issues. It is not uncommon for the shelter-in-place to cause anxiety, depression, despair, sleeplessness, and/or irritation. If this is you, you are having a normal reaction to significant situational distress. You are not alone in this.
I have extensive training in a therapy model, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, better known as EMDR, that is designed to help people work through current or older traumatic experiences and painful memories that have come up as a result of the tumultuous times we live in. There are also methods of EMDR that particularly target COVID anxiety. If you would like to learn more about EMDR or how it could be helpful to you, please feel free to give me a call or send an email and arrange for a free consultation. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
Throughout life we encounter painful experiences that can hold us back from reaching our full potential. We sometimes feel these experiences define us.
You are not the sum total of what's happened to you. I believe in the infinite worth and value of each individual. My goal as a therapist is to help people live life free from beliefs that hold them back.
Whatever keeps you from being bright shining star is either a lie or a memory.
Try a new path.
We often need space to tell our story in a non-judgmental safe place. It is important to me to provide that space where people can process issues and perhaps write a new narrative, develop stronger internal resources and find resolution. Sometimes speaking your story out loud with an empathic, non-judgmental person is worth its weight in gold.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Together, we can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. I utilize many powerful tools including EMDR to help individuals find resolution to traumas in their life.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we work, together to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy in your life.
While my practice is open to people of all faith traditions, as a Christian therapist, I delight in helping people to strengthen their faith. Sometimes we need help to resolve old wounds that keep us from experiencing the unconditional love of God. I am always honored to help others on their journey.
