What's Your 'Normal'?

Has 'Just Getting By' Become a Way of Life?

 

As we struggle to persevere under the weight of anxiety, depression and mental distress, living takes a back seat to surviving.

We all have a survivor within us; a part that carries us through the bad times and holds us together when we feel like falling apart.

It's a brilliant evolutionary adaptation - and an unhappy way to live.

As "survivor" goes from being a part that protects us during times of stress to just who we are, it loses it's adaptive value.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

With extensive training in trauma, attachment and neurology, I go beyond psychoanalytic and talk therapy - because unfortunately for most of us, were we able to think our way out of our emotional state, we would have done it long ago.

By combining cognitive, relational and somatic psychotherapy with EMDR, Ego State Therapy, Internal Family Systems, attachment theory and sensorimotor techniques, I help clients move past talking about their experience to processing through it. The goal is never "coping with" but "moving past."

 

Thriving, not surviving.
