Counseling for when it feels like too much

Are you stretched to your limits? One more thing and you swear you will lose it? Do your shoulders hurt, does your neck creak, or is it worse than that? Do you feel like you’re on edge all the time? Even if you don’t, do you feel like your stress level is a bit too high?

I get it.

Talk to me. I’m a mom of three kids (twins happen!). I was hoping for little geniuses, and I got them — with a big dose of silliness and autism thrown in. I’ve had my own struggles with mental and physical health, but they have not stopped me yet.

I have some degrees that mean I (mostly) know what I’m talking about. I am a nerd for psychotherapy that is proven to work, and I continue to learn as much as possible to help my clients. I use clinical hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Prolonged Exposure therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help the people I work with.

I don’t have it all figured out, but I have been there and I am there.

When you’re stressed, talking can help.

Sometimes you just need a voice of reason that doesn’t sound like yourself.

I love working with people with physical and emotional symptoms related to stress, anxiety, and physical and emotional trauma, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I help people with chronic pain, stressed-out parents, parents of autistic kids, autistic adults, and people who have been through some tough stuff (car accidents, abuse, sexual assault, etc.) and want to get past it. 

The Mind-Body Connection

You may already know that stress and anxiety have an effect on how your body feels. When you are stressed, you may notice more pain. But, did you know that there is a direct biological connection between unresolved emotional issues and your physical health? Psychotherapy can help you resolve the pieces of your past and present that are keeping your body stuck in the cycle of stress and pain.
