Life may seem overwhelming, as if you are alone and no one understands you. Maybe you have an issue with someone, but the thought of conflict makes you shut down and avoid the situation. Perhaps you are anxious or consumed with worry or afraid of disappointing others. I have worked with many patients who struggle to stay connected in relationships or effectively communicate with others. You could struggle with anger issues and use anger to defend and protect yourself from being hurt.
I have specialized training in Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychotherapy techniques to help, especially if you have a history of complex trauma. We first focus on building the therapy alliance, which I will describe in detail with you. I use an eclectic approach. You do the work, I support you and collaborate with you in your journey.
My role as a psychotherapist is not to fix you or advise you what to do. I am here to listen, become attuned to your experiences and ask you important questions. There is no room for judgement. I focus on creating a safe space for you to share your thoughts, feelings, and life experiences.
