Life circumstances can throw us off balance. Regaining our equilibrium can be tough. This can cause us to feel unsteady in our decision making and relationships. These feelings of inadequacy can gain traction long term. My desire isn’t for you to simply find the right treatment, I desire for you to find true healing.
Creating a space where clients can be supported and validated in their pain is essential. Often the source of the imbalance hasn’t yet been uncovered, which makes regaining balance especially difficult. Helping you uncover what is driving the painful behaviors or hopeless feelings creates room for you to heal from the inside out.
I know the struggles, personally and professionally, of navigating trauma, family, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, and having immediate family members in military service. Assisting clients to normalize that these roles are difficult even in the best of circumstances, often creates space for greater understanding and new patterns to emerge.
For counseling to be most effective, it’s vital for the client to feel safe with and connected to the counselor. Because of this, we will take the time needed to gain trust, while heading toward your goals.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and specialize in pregnant and postpartum moms, parenting, grief and loss, and trauma. Working with military members and family member of those in the military is also an area of expertise.
In addition, I have many years of extensive training and experience in EMDR. I understand the incredible effectiveness of EMDR when utilized with the appropriate client, and take seriously the process of ensuring the client is a fit.
If life has you feeling unsteady, I’m so glad you’re searching out. You are not alone. I’m here to help.
