Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive. It’s wanting friends but hating to socialize. It’s wanting to be alone but not wanting to be lonely. It’s caring about everything, then caring about nothing. It’s feeling everything at once, then feeling paralyzingly numb.
Sometimes you wish you could turn off your brain. It would be amazing to have
your thoughts stop racing and to make the panic attacks disappear. It seems like
it has been harder to leave the house and socialize or even simply to feel calm
and grounded. It would be amazing if, even for a moment, you did not have to
“pretend you are okay.” To others it may seem like you are calm but underneath
the surface is tension, a negative, nagging voice constantly correcting and
Or maybe when the worrying stops, the apathy, fatigue, and sadness kicks in. Part
of you wants to interact with others but the notion of doing anything feels
exhausting. When you are out, it seems like your brain is “not working like it is
supposed to.” You feel this deep “fogginess” which makes it hard to work,
socialize or even be out on your own. It seems as if people around you are so
happy and at ease, and you wonder how they do it.
SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
I have such a passion working with my clients who are wanting to process their trauma. I am trained in ART, use inner child, and psycho drama components, and parts work to help you work through trauma.
When we just talk about trauma we are cognitively thinking about it and that does not allow us to connect with where trauma is stored in our brain.
The tools and practices I use help you get out of your head and connect more with your emotions and body.
ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
The above symptoms describe the way many experience anxiety and depression. Neither of these are problems you have to figure out on your own. I have so much empathy for clients who are struggling with the ups and downs related to anxiety and depression. I will help you love yourself for who you truly are versus worrying about “fitting into a box”. I will help you quiet that critical voice and instead replace it with one that is compassionate and loves your imperfect self. I will teach you tools that pull from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), teach you about your inner child, utilize self-compassion work, and other mindfulness tools to help you feel more grounded, confident, and able to ride the wave when anxiety or depression hits
versus having it overtake and consume you.
