Are you tired of feeling stuck? Are you tired of struggling with food, your body, your intense emotions, and/or the use of substances? Are you struggling with loss, abandonment, grief, or changes in relationships? Do you wish your relationships were more satisfying? Have you tried other types of treatment that didn't seem to gel with you? Look no further. Together we'll look at your life through a symbolic lens and help you to connect the dots of what your psyche is trying to tell you. We'll help you to integrate fragmented parts of yourself that manifest through dreams, behaviors, actions, and relationship dynamics. We'll also help you to integrate loss and learn to cope with a new normal.
Through this process I will help you to tolerate and reduce intense emotions such as anxiety and depression, and increase relationship satisfaction with yourself and others. Key areas of change often include increased trust in self and others, body positivity, balance, and assertion.
We will use art making, dreams, and discussion to better understand patterns and behaviors. Your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are here for a reason. They came with a purpose of attempting to move you somewhere or preserve you from some element. Art, dreams, and discussion will allow us access to your internal world to make sense, find meaning, and identify needs. (Important reminder: Healing takes feeling and I will help you to manage intense emotions throughout the healing process.)
I am available to you by phone and email between sessions within defined parameters that are discussed within the first few sessions to establish a healthy and supportive therapeutic relationship.
