Stress and Trauma
Learning to build a healthy relationship with self and your emotions
You may have arrived here because:
- You struggle with emotions and engage in unhelpful behaviors when feeling overwhelmed.
- You feel anxious and worry about things, which impacts sleep or other areas of your life
-You feel dissatisfied with close relationships.
-You are not sure how to express what you want and need.
- You have moments of depression and are not sure how to cope.
- Have a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder and are feeling suicidal
Whatever the reason, I am glad you are here. Please read on to see if I can offer you the support you need.
A pattern of feeling stuck
You might feel like there is no way to break the patterns in your life, due to years of going around and around the same cycle. It is possible to find a new way forward. It takes work and willingness to unlearn how we relate to ourselves and the world around us. We also have to discover the new skills in order to replace to old ones. I can help you learn these skills and gain autonomy of self.
My experience in personal support
I've spent the last several years helping my clients work on trauma and also learning to cope with overwhelming emotions. I’ve also spent time focusing on those who are struggling with suicidal ideation and can't seem to get better. I have used both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to help my clients gain increased confidence in themselves and their ability to have a healthy relationship with emotions. I have also taught skills to reduce stress and used psychodynamic therapy to help clients gain insight and perspective. I also helped those stuck in depression and needing a way out when traditional talk therapy is not working. I also have knowledge in emotional regulation, which I teach my clients and this is effective in how they relate to their intimate relationships.
