Are you struggling with conflict and recurring problematic issues in your relationships?
Are you finding your self struggling with reactivity, lack of control or challenging nervous system symptoms?
Are certain behaviors - spending, alcohol use, etc feeling out of balance?
We are all products of our environment, experience and relationships. Along the way, we have gathered deeply internalized beliefs, some that serve our growth and wellbeing, some that don’t. In addition emotions, both positive and negative, and chronic stress or trauma continues to impact our lives for years. Much of what has happened in the past still resides deeply in our body, manifesting as behavioral, relational or emotional struggles, often unexplained and sometimes inexplicable.
How can I help you? One of the greatest challenges we face, as we enter psycho-therapy, is uncovering and addressing the deeper emotional wounds and trauma that are manifesting in our lives as depression, anxiety, ADHD and behavioral problems such as substance abuse, relationship conflicts, over-eating, and many more. Our minds and bodies developed these coping mechanisms to protect us from the pain of these difficult emotions. Meditation and "mindfulness" techniques allow us to shift our awareness to what's happening internally and, as we develop this awareness and allow space for these hidden emotions to surface, to begin to process and release the unwanted energy and emotion. By cultivating a non-judgmental attitude, which is key to mindfulness, we develop the confidence and courage to complete this difficult work while simultaneously developing life-long skills of relaxation and embodiment.
