Who You Are Determines Your Treatment.....
Chronic Symptoms are formed over decades.
Our beliefs and associations are imprinted into our minds throughout our lives.
Early experiences are especially influential for us since they form a template for our thinking and relating.
When childhood experiences and relationships were insufficient or abusive they act as silent weights, holding us back from our full potential.
We find ourselves trapped, repeating old patterns of thought, feeling and relating. We may suffer from low
self-esteem, unhealthy relationships, anxiety or depression.
Many people with chronic symptoms engage in self-harming or self-sabotaging behaviors.
I work to understand where and how events from your past are influencing your present life.
I am trained in both traditional "talk" therapy and clinical art therapy.
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..
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.
