I love helping my clients discover the many different ways they can tap into their natural healing resources to work through their emotional wounds and relational struggles to live out their unique and fulfilling journeys.
Much of my work involves the legacy of intergenerational trauma that generations experience reliving deep fears and learned behaviors. Lately, I've been helping clients process the layers of trauma resulting from current events, COVID-19 and racial trauma that is affecting their relationships and other aspects of daily living.
I help people navigate the challenges of trauma, stress, identity exploration, microaggressions in their professional lives, perfectionism, intrusive thoughts, attachment struggles, indecisiveness, numbing, procrastination, imposter syndrome and other difficulties. Yes, it's a bit of a laundry list, but the truth is that our debilitating symptoms rarely show up in just one area. I don't treat labels, I treat symptoms with the intent of helping you rediscover that sense of feeling "whole" that is innate to us. We are not flawed. There's a Self within each of us that is capable, compassionate and possesses capacity for growth and clarity.
Many of my clients struggle with relationship distress and need help dealing with conflicts that have spanned generations. Others struggle with intrusive negative self-talk despite being accomplished in a number of ways. Nothing ever satisfies and they find themselves moving onto the next thing they hope will put them at ease.
A lot of my work involves helping restore the mind/body connection which addresses the physiological discomfort that accompanies stress. At the heart of this work is finding genuine peace and acceptance to move forward in life with confidence.
I'm committed to exploring and keeping abreast of emerging clinical interventions that are culturally affirming and produce tangible results in my clients. I express this commitment in regular training and consultation with experts with advanced credentials and training. At the end of the day, therapy needs to make a difference.
I'm excited to introduce protocols, strategies and practices that clients can implement from the first session and put to use in their everyday life.
My approach is eclectic meaning that the intervention I use will depend on your needs. I am a certified trauma professional with training in EMDR, DBT, CBT, IFS, Feminist Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Brainspotting, Accelerated Resolution Therapy and a number of other evidence-based modalities. I bring whatever works best for you.
I am also a certified life coach which suits those who do not have a mental health diagnosis, but still need guidance navigating issues that may involve racial injustice, self-esteem or lack of purpose. I have experience as an attorney, social activist and community leader to help individuals gain empowerment and direction. Please schedule a 15 minute consultation to discuss if this might be an option for you or check my availability and schedule an intake session direct from my website at www.UrimRecovery.com. I am in network with BCBS if you have this insurance.
I look forward to meeting with you.
