Nurture Relationship with Self and Others
Are your early experiences shaping how you’re forming close relationships later in life? Do negative thoughts about yourself weigh you down? Do you find yourself ruminating about past or future rejections, or worrying about whether someone might judge you for not being perfect?
It’s been a long time since the event occurred, and you’re still not over it. You feel like you’re trapped in this miserable place and you can’t get out. People tell you that you should be over it by now, but that doesn’t feel true for you. When you look in the mirror, you no longer recognize yourself at all. You’ve gone through changes that you’re not really sure you want to remember. Sometimes when you take a big step forward in your life, you feel foreign, and strange, and have to run away.
Your experience with trauma, abuse, addiction, or anxiety and depression may have prevented you from living your best life. You may have had some therapy in the past, and you know that talking to someone about your feelings helps a little, but you still feel like something isn’t right.
You don’t have to keep living like this – in pain and feeling stuck. Help is available so that you can start to heal and rebuild your life.
Begin by noticing your inner dialogue. What kind of things do you say to yourself? Are they said in a kind, compassionate way, or in a way that you would never dream of speaking to a close, well-loved friend?
Often, we speak to ourselves in a negative or mean way. If we spoke to our friends the way we speak to ourselves, we would never have any friends. I come in to teach you how to meditate and be more self-aware. I want you to be able to look at yourself with compassion and kindness, the way you would a close friend. Through reading, application, and regular meditation sessions, you can learn to control your inner dialogue and find true love for yourself. This leads to healthier relationships and life choices.
What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy approach that includes, sound, sight, and touch and is used to help the brain heal itself after a trauma. It is a bilateral stimulation therapy that can help reprocess an event through mindfulness practices. These practices can help you notice your feelings and see things from a new perspective. As you process memory in your mind and share what you choose to with the therapist, you will begin to see things differently, access positive ways of viewing the original trauma, and allow you to release the stored negative emotional reactions around it. You will recognize that you didn’t do anything wrong and that it wasn’t your fault. This can help you let go of any sense of responsibility or stories of “what if”.
The goal of EMDR therapy is to leave you with the emotions, understanding, and perspectives that will lead to healthy and useful behaviors and interactions.
Are you interested in achieving emotional balance in your life and relationships? If so, let’s schedule a session to discuss this further.
“Otherness” and “difference” are two things that we all experience at some point in our lives. Whether it’s because of our gender, our culture, or our sexuality, feeling like an outsider can be a difficult thing to deal with. But it doesn’t have to be! I have a wealth of experience and first-hand knowledge about the things that make people feel “different.” Let me help you understand and embrace your own uniqueness.
I help people from all walks of life and with all kinds of cultural backgrounds. I truly do not consider anything but the person sitting in front of me and working to understand their feelings and needs. I believe that every human has the right to be who they are and to express their true selves.
I’d love to answer any questions you might have! Please schedule a free consultation to see if therapy is right for you. I’m excited to meet you!
