Although the world is full of suffering,
It is also full of the overcoming of it.
Loss of Sense of Self
After surviving the chaos of a past conflict, abuse, trauma, or just the ongoing day-to-day, it can feel as if you're simply existing in this thing called Life. Sometimes, you may feel as though you've lost your identity through a life change, like becoming a parent, losing a loved one, getting married or divorced, or changing jobs. You might have looked back at pictures of yourself and realized you barely recognize the person in the pictures, who you "used to be." However you may have lost yourself, I'm honored to be by your side as you come back to yourself.
Clearing out the Past
I believe that you are so much more than your experiences.
However, sometimes that is difficult for you to see for yourself. Especially when issues from the past are taking over your present.
Depending on your needs and goals for treatment, we may use any of the following treatments to support a sense of stability in your life.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Image Transformation Therapy
Distress Tolerance skill-building
Guilt & Shame
Fixing toxic relationships
Boundary violations/unhealthy boundaries
Self-Worth and Self-Esteem
I believe you are infinitely worthy of love and belonging.
Many of my clients have reported a fear of being deeply flawed, failures, or being "found out" by the people who matter most to them. While those fears are valid, they are certainly untrue. Some of the ways we will explore bolstering your sense of self-esteem, worthiness, and belonging may include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Networking/Expanding your support system
