Trauma has a huge impact on our lives, often in ways that we don't even recognize. I can help folks find ways to cope when they are feeling bad, and to move from overwhelm and stress to find relief from the symptoms that cause us so much pain. I have lived through trauma myself and my passion is helping people move through theirs.
Sometimes we feel like what happened to us doesn't qualify as trauma. But no matter what it was, the worst thing that has ever happened to us is still the worst thing that has ever happened to us, so there's no need to ignore the symptoms we have because it 'it wasn't that bad' or 'other people had it worse'.
There was no class in school to teach us how to find and maintain a healthy relatioship, how to say no and assert our boundaries with our loved ones or our bosses, or how to manage the conflicts that inevitably arises in our relationships in a way that leaves us feeling better instead of worse. There was no class, yet we face these issues on a daily basis. Navigating difficult relationships or difficult times in relationships is integral to a happy life, and I can help!
I also work with individuals navigating the following:
Substance use problems
Thoughts of suicide
Physical or emotional abuse
Plural Systems and Dissociative Identity Disorder
