Stuff that's hard to talk about

Many times, when clients first decide they want to come for therapy, they are experiencing symptoms that feel out of control.  What most of my clients have in common, is that the “out of control” symptom was really a way they were trying to help themselves feel better.  

Nobody gets through life without difficult experiences. 

We all want to feel better.  Sometimes the ways we have done so in the past are no longer working, or are causing more harm.

Some experiences I have specialized training and/or experience in are as follows:

  • Sexual Abuse, Incest

  • Emotional Abuse

  • Covert Emotional Incest

  • Physical Abuse

  • Narcissistic Abuse

  • Neglect

  • Poverty/systemic trauma

  • Incarceration or placement

  • Growing up in a home with substance abuse

  • Growing up in a home with domestic violence

  • Early attachment disruptions

  • Bullying & Rejection

  • Witnessing or Perpetrating Violence
