What a courageous thing for you to seek help. Whether you are reaching out for help related to relationships, self esteem, addiction or other things – there is hope.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I was trained in a residential treatment facility specializing in helping people who struggle with trauma and addiction. I am also a Somatic Experience Practitioner and EMDR trained therapist. Somatic Experience is a body centered approach to healing trauma and stress, which draws on mindfulness. EMDR is a psychotherapy approach for the treatment of trauma.
What I have discovered is that our experiences, our beliefs about our experiences and our decisions heavily influence who we are and how we feel moment to moment. Betrayal, relationship problems, trauma and addiction are experiences.
It is common for people to believe that because of what has happened to them in their lives or what they have done, they are damaged. I believe there is already a natural wisdom within you, and an urge to heal yourself. Allow me to support you in following that inclination and to gain greater peace and clarity along the way.
