Who I Serve

Are you overwhelmed with negative thoughts, feeling depressed or anxious? No matter how hard you try, your life is still a struggle? I can help. When we are very young, we adapt to our environments to get our needs met for love and safety. And we continue to use those adaptions unconsciously as adults. I can help you understand your symptoms and help you change slowly so that you may we can be more " in the moment" and experience more peace and joy. I use an Internal Family Systems Approach as well as EMDR and Hypnotherapy. I like to develop warm and trusting relationships with my clients. As we work together we will identify the parts of yourself that you developed to cope as a child. We will understand why they developed, how they have helped you and how YOU can be in charge to fortify your Self. We may use EMDR (check out EMDRIA.org) to process traumatic memories. An ancient Sufi saying... "when the ego weeps for what it has lost, the spirit rejoices for what it has found." When we are confronted with fear and anxiety, it is an opportunity to find ourselves. Together and patiently, we can do that.
