“I don’t want to feel like this any longer.” Or “I just want to feel better about myself and my life.” Many of my clients will say something this. They feel stuck while feelings of anxiety, sadness, grief and the fears of not being good enough seem to grow. They may point to different good things happening in their lives but feeling happier is not happening. Feeling ashamed to admit even to themselves or others about how hard things are going and self-doubt continues to settle in.
Many of these feelings can be rooted in trauma whether that word is used or not. While traumatic experiences are sometimes extremely dramatic, actually trauma is experienced by all of us at different times in our lives. These unhealthy patterns and feelings are not you and they do not define you.
Let’s work together to change the influence of stress in your life and create more balance, greater self-awareness and feel better about yourself, your life and where you are going.
I’ve been a psychotherapist for twenty years and I love it. It is a real honor to listen and learn about your life and work with you. In addition to talk therapy, I use techniques, such as EMDR and Brainspotting, to help clients feel better.
