Many of my clients want to feel whole and complete in themselves, to know who they are and where their life is headed. And they also want to experience fulfilling relationships in which they feel emotionally connected. But for many of them, something has disrupted that. Either they experienced a life transition, lost a significant relationship, or experienced trauma. Change, loss, or trauma in your family can cause feelings of depression, anger, sadness, or confusion, and it can leave you feeling like you've lost a part of yourself. It's disorienting, and it's hard to get back to wholeness by yourself. The truth is that there is a way forward. You're not alone and with help, healing is possible.
For over a decade, I've been working with families, adolescents and children, and I've seen them courageously move through depression, anxiety, loss and grief into stable relationships in which they experience wholeness. I love helping individuals and families feel connected and empowered again. I use a combination of family systems theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, and trust-based relational intervention to help my clients regain connection with themselves and with their most essential relationships.
