Child Parent Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
DBT informed Art Therapy
Trauma impacts each individual in unique ways. This can include influencing the types of relationships we may gravitate towards, our sense of self, sense of safety, physical health, and emotional well-being. I strongly value and encourage each individual's right to choice; choosing if, how, and when they share their story. Therapy can support you with skills development to manage/reduce the intensity of the distress associated with the traumatic event(s), identify possible triggers, share your trauma narrative on your terms, identify underlying emotions, find meaning, separate your sense of identity from the experience, and ultimately experience reduction or complete cessation of trauma related symptoms.
Perinatal Mental Health
Life with an infant can bring up a lot of different feelings. Parents can be impacted regardless of gender. Between the lack of sleep, environmental stressors, over-stimulation, shifts in identity, changes in relationship dynamics, birth trauma, hormones, resurfacing of past experienced traumas, and limited time for self–mental, emotional, and physical well-being can all be significantly impacted. Caring for the caregiver is important. Therapy can offer a safe space for you to decompress, reconnect with yourself, and develop skills/boundaries to support you in caring for yourself while navigating parenthood.
Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression can present in a variety of ways; including loss of interest in things once found enjoyable, difficulties focusing, chronic fatigue, agitation, chronic/excessive worry, difficulties sleeping, and more. Therapy can be supportive in exploring observed patterns to your experience, identifying emotions, increasing awareness surrounding influencing factors/triggers for emotional experience, and developing skills to alleviate symptoms of anxiety/depression.
