"Psychological trauma is damage to the mind that occurs as a result of a distressing event. Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one's ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience."
We have to recognize trauma for what it is, overwhelmingly painful. Trauma does not just go away. Grief does not mysteriously disappear. Unhealthy attachments drain us. Are you finding yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally drained? Do you struggle with an intimate connection with others? Have the thoughts of friendship and intimacy sent you on an emotional roller-coaster and you have now found yourself guarded. Avoidance is no longer working and it seems impossible to be authentic with family, close friends, even intimate partners! Let me help you find balance.
I work with individuals struggling with Attachment, Grief and Trauma with a speciality in Love/Sex Addiction and Intimacy issues. This allows me to help individuals explore and regulate their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors as they struggle with PTSD, anxiety, hyper-vigilant behavior, depression and more. We will take a Person-Centered approach that allows you the patience you need and deserve.
