Are you ready to move forward in your life?
Do you wish you could overcome what is holding you back?
Do you want to get clear on your priorities and your path?
We all need support in our lives -- especially when we are trying to create lasting changes, heal from past wounds, or gain insights about who we are, why we do what we do, and how to move forward. Individual therapy can help you gain clarity, build self-confidence, and reach your goals. Our work together will be collaborative, nurturing, and transformative. Develop the insight, experience, and self-confidence you need to move forward with joy in your life.
You don't need to struggle alone.
As a woman and mother you are asked to repeatedly transform yourself and your life around the needs of your family. The task is heroic and the struggles are plentiful.
I work with women seeking support for:
- Relationship Issues
- Divorce, Separation and Break-ups
- Parenting and Co-parenting Challenges
- Conception, Infertility, and Secondary Infertility
- Postpartum adjustment: Postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, baby blues
- Single motherhood
- Recovering from or processing trauma
Whether you are struggling in your marriage, searching for "the one," or fed up getting stuck in the same pattern over and over again, relationship counseling can help you find lasting improvement in your relationships. I believe that in order to be happy in a relationship each of us needs to be clear about what we want and need, feel confident in asking for it, and know that we deserve it. Relationship counseling can help you identify what your tendencies or patterns are that get you stuck in unsatisfying relationships or patterns of interaction. It can help you clarify what you want and need from your relationship, and overcome obstacles in the way of both having healthy boundaries and the ability to be vulnerable.
For many, the root cause of unhealthy, unhelpful patterns and stuckness is a past event or series of events. Consciously or unconsciously, we hold on to negative beliefs about ourselves as a result from these traumatic moments in our lives. Common traumas include losses, sudden transitions, unresolved conflicts, accidents that threatened our physically or psychological safety or well being, and physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse and assault.
It can be both exciting and terrifying when you reach a point in your life when you decide to confront your past and resolve the trauma that is holding you back. You may have come to this moment because your relationships are chronically failing and you want to do things differently or because you don’t want your past to govern your future with the person you love, or because you don’t want your trauma to impact your ability to lovingly parent your child or children. You may finally have the love and support in your life that you feel strong enough and settled enough to delve in. Whatever your reason, you need a safe place and a skilled therapist to work with you on this journey.
I offer EMDR therapy as well as attachment based psychodynamic therapy to address trauma. If you’d like to learn more about EMDR, or about how your trauma may be affecting your relationships, I would love to talk with you.
