Identifying aspects of your life that you would like to change and/or need support in to create more inner and outer peace in your life. This could be working through painful past or present emotions, working through anxiety, depression, or trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a psychotherapy treatment designed to alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories. I also help you establish boundaries with others, express your needs, and help you identify negative beliefs that are holding you back. I help clients with finding healthier ways of dealing with emotions to help gain control over emotional eating habits that can leave you feeling powerless over food. Grief can be complicated. I can help you navigate the loss of a loved one and learn to co-exist with grief, to honor the loss you've experienced.
Support with parenting by learning how to set loving limits with children to help them learn, while also maintaining a loving connection. Learn communication tools to work through strong feelings that could be getting expressed in a negative way or not at all. Changing the negative family dynamics is the key to connection and peace. I also help stepfamilies with adjustment.
Teaching couples to build stronger empathy and compassion for one another. One of the most effective ways to do this is by learning a communication tool. This leads to a deeper level of trust which results in deeper intimacy and connection in a relationship. I have also use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples to help with the pattern of disconnection to create more emotionally bonding patterns. Prepare/Enrich couple's assessments are offered.
