Counseling for Trauma
Life is not always well represented by the pretty pictures posted on our social media feeds. It can be beautiful, of course, full of smiles and “firsts” and an assortment of celebrations and mundane moments of awe. But, it can also be challenging, overwhelming, and sometimes downright painful! Sometimes things happen to us through the course of a life that we can barely name, much less feel safe enough to share with another person.
Acknowledging and eventually allowing someone to safely bear witness to the painful experiences of our lives is a big deal. It takes a lot of courage, but ultimately facing our own wounds transforms them from something that haunts and hurts to something that strengthens, empowers, and deepens. This is an amazing process because the healing comes from a deep, whole place that already exists inside of you! Not sure you have that place in you? That’s where therapy comes in. My job to help you find this in yourself, whatever the circumstances of your life.
Being a guide to the process of healing from trauma is one of the great joys of my life. Every day, I have the honor of witnessing deep healing and transformation. In my years of treating trauma, I have learned what works and what doesn’t. Many of my clients have spent years in traditional counseling without meaningful relief or change. Through an integrated approach, I use EMDR, depth psychotherapy, ACT Therapy, and mindfulness work to get under the surface and beyond the cognitive self. This is a liberating experience! I see people heal and grow in ways they never could have imagined – and you can do this, too!
Together, we will move through a process of reconnecting with your own wisdom, finding flexibility in the mind, and letting go of what doesn’t serve you. Gradually, you will become whole in a brand new way. You can have a life that is full, meaningful, healthy, happy, and free.
