Death, divorce, illness, victimization and sudden losses can challenge our ability to cope.
The first focus of crisis treatment is to contain overwhelming emotions and increase coping abilities.
I work to process grief and trauma associated with loss.
Often crisis events can trigger prior losses in our lives, causing additional feelings of depression and anxiety.
At such times we find ourselves unable to move on from crisis, trapped by old, unprocessed emotions.
Healing may include revisiting past losses that may never have truly healed.
Whether you find yourself overcome by crisis events or enslaved to “old programing”; therapeutic work can be an essential tool toward increased feelings of joy and control in life.
