Therapy for Men

If you're a man who believes he is in an abusive relationship, it's important to know that you're not alone. It happens to men from all cultures, ages, religions, and sexual orientations. However, men are often reluctant to report abuse due to the shame and guilt associated with the abusive relationship.
Admitting the problem and seeking help doesn't mean you have failed as a man or as a husband/partner. Support from family and friends as well as therapy can help you heal and move toward living a more healthy life.
I understand the complexities of abusive relationships and I work with both men and women who have endured controlling and/or abuse in their relationships. My goal is for my clients is to learn to live life, not survive life!

Trauma Treatment for Adults

If you have experienced a traumatic experience and or childhood trauma you know that traumatic events can leave psychological scars that can have long lasting effects. Research has shown that Psychotherapy is the foundation of trauma treatment and I understand and recognize the complexities as well as the challenges trauma survivors endure, and I am highly skilled at helping clients heal.
At my practice, Eggshell Therapy, I employ both Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Somatic Experiencing therapies as the main treatment modalities in addressing the effects of trauma. EMDR directs eye movements to reprocess distressing experiences that help aid in reducing emotional distress. Somatic Experiencing is a treatment that addresses trauma symptoms that may be the result of the autonomic nervous system dysregulation. These symptoms may include extreme anxiety and/or hypervigilance and the use of SE therapy can help aid clients in learning how to reset their nervous system.
While I employ many other techniques and treatment modalities, many clients experience great relief when undergoing EMDR and SE, as they can be invaluable tools for trauma treatment.

Grief and Loss Therapy

Grief is often associated with the death of a loved one, but such feelings can also be connected to any major life event or change in ways that may feel similar to a death. Such major changes can be experiences such as: periods of unemployment, divorce, or even the loss of a body part (or a major medical change that causes a body part to no longer function as it once had). In fact, any loss, regardless of magnitude, can trigger feelings of grief. When someone experiences grief it becomes necessary to talk about the emotions and thoughts associated with the loss in order to restore a sense of acceptance and peace, and to enable healing to occur.

The devastating feelings one has after the death of a loved one naturally has long lasting effects. Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own unique timeline. It’s best not to compare your grieving journey with that of another, as some people resume normal activities more quickly than others. Conversely, some may continue to grieve for years without seeming to improve or finding temporary relief.

I understand the complexities and challenges people often face while grieving, and as a result I provide a safe and healing place for people experiencing the death of a loved one and or other losses due to life changes.
