Therapy for Trauma & Traumatic Grieffrom the comfort of your home
Let’s be honest. Experiencing trauma really sucks.
A traumatic experience can shatter our entire sense of self and we often feel like the world is spiraling around us. We have trouble managing our emotions – out of nowhere, we’re anxious, afraid, sad, heartbroken, angry. We think we’re losing our mind. Thoughts, memories, and images can intrude into your mind whether you are asleep or awake. Our relationships begin to suffer.
Trauma doesn’t even have to be a huge and debilitating experience to completely disrupt our sense of self and where we fit into the world. We call these ‘little t’ traumas, and can still have a major impact on your life. These traumas can sometimes fly way under the radar until we shine a flashlight on them and realize just how much they’ve influenced us.
People in your life may not understand your trauma or loss has affected you and aren’t able to give you the emotional support you so desperately want and need. They might look like they have it all together and you’re over here feeling like you’re falling apart. Or maybe they are traumatized too, and you can’t talk with them without feeling like you have to “be strong” or “hold it together” for them. We know we’re tough people in Alaska, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need the support of others.
Whatever your trauma is, you probably feel alone and like your feelings are too big, too small, or somehow wrong.
I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone and you will survive, even if that doesn’t feel true right now. I’m here to give you the space to share the thoughts and feelings that you aren’t able to share with anyone else. You can learn how to calm and soothe your body and mind despite what you’ve experienced.
Together, we’ll find hope and purpose for your life. All from the comfort of your home.
I’m here to help you make space for your story.
That’s right. We’re going to make space for it.
Your traumas and losses are part of who you are, but they do not define you. If you’ve tried to forget what you’ve experienced, you probably realized that it just doesn’t seem to work. We will instead find a way to respect how those experiences have affected you and find meaning and purpose for your future.
What makes me the counselor for you? I have spent years working with people that have experienced many different types of trauma and loss and I have had my own experiences that shaped the course of my life.
I believe that all healing occurs in the context of a relationship, so creating a space that you feel comfortable, validated, and supported is my #1 priority. I am also trained in a variety of treatments, so we can adapt our work together based on your needs. I would be honored to walk alongside you on your healing journey.
We can do amazing work together.
