Hello, and welcome to Creative Journeys Counseling, where I support adult and teen clients using EMDR, CRM, Sandplay, Hypnotherapy, Virtual Reality Therapy, Play Therapy, and more. Now offering in-person sessions for people who are fully vaccinated!
Are you, or is your child struggling with PTSD, C-PTSD, anxiety, self-criticism, sadness, compassion fatigue, or painful memories and triggers? Or maybe you are feeling disconnected from who and where you'd most like to be in your life.
Complications arising from divorce, trauma, unhealthy life and relationship patterns, adoption, and concerns with coming out, and/or transitioning as LGBTQI+ are just some of the reasons people seek therapy with me. And now, more than ever, therapists and front-line personnel such as nurses, firefighters and EMT's are realizing the toll their work is taking on them, and are seeking EMDR to help clear work-place related trauma.
Difficulties from childhood, unhealthy past relationships, work and grief can continue to impact your emotional well-being in the present moment. These past events can continue to influence the way you think and feel, the way you interact with others, and your ability to be successful in your life.
A more joyful, balanced and confident life is possible, and whether you are new to therapy, or have had mental health therapy in the past, it is never too late to heal. You don't need to continue to carry around the heavy grief, trauma and negative beliefs you've been carrying, even if you've been carrying them forever. There are techniques, such as EMDR, CRM and Ego State therapy (parts work), that can be used to effectively integrate and heal past hurts. Your nervous system, your body, your emotions and your mind can truly feel the relief of not having to carry that load anymore, and that is an awesome, freeing feeling.
As a trauma-focused and experiential psychotherapist who's helped hundreds of struggling children and adults in the past thirteen years, I feel confident that I can help support you on your own journey. My approach is empathic, gently challenging and creative. I am a queer-affirming, transgender-affirming and non-binary-affirming therapist, so no matter who you are, my goal is for you to feel safe, comfortable and validated.
Unlike relying on self-help books, online articles and social media to feel better, I can give you a personable, warm and integrative approach, specific to you and your needs. Your history, your personality and your values are unique, so your therapy should be too!
People who seek counseling with me often report that they have learned to:
As you search for the right therapist to support you, it is important to find someone you can trust, feel safe with, and who can help you make lasting changes. If you are ready to do the work and think I may be the right fit for you, I would be honored to support you.
