Psychotherapy – EMDR – Brainspotting
“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 anxiety, sadness and the fear of not being good enough seem to grow. They can point to many good things in their lives but feeling happier isn’t happening. Feeling ashamed to admit even to themselves or others about how hard things are and that self-doubt is settling in.
Work, school and relationships require an energy that is harder and harder to find. You may try to remind yourself to feel grateful but sometimes even that reinforces a feeling of shame that your life feels so difficult. Connecting with friends and family can be challenging and the idea of showing up for yourself becomes less of priority.
Many of these feelings are rooted in trauma whether that word is used or not. While traumatic experiences can be extremely dramatic, trauma is experienced by all of us at different times and events 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 almost 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.
