Despite some limitations of virtual therapy, it is possible that sometimes we could work with a couple or 2 family members during a session or to see them each at a different appointment online to work with relationship issues you are having. Family therapy really enriches the chances of providing healing. You will be asked to complete an intake form for our first session so we can determine together what your therapy goals are. Everyone needs some therapy at some time in their lives, even I do that. We should never be berated for trying to heal our pain, whatever the cause. Yep, it does not mean that we are weak or crazy. Life gets hard sometimes.
You will notice that my special therapy dog, Tripp, will show up many times. He spent 5 days a week for 10 years working along side of me and he is greatly loved by most of my clients. He is a great friend & companion

A big mouthful, huh? Well it IS A BIG UGLY DEAL! And it's one we usually need professional help to resolve. There are often flashbacks (images of the incident triggered by current thoughts or experiences) which can lead to depression, panic disorder, anxiety, paranoia and withdrawal or aggression. In pandemic days, grief is a nationwide issue unfortunately. I am well trained in dealing with trauma & helping folks to get through it in the healthiest ways possible. EMDR is a great tool to heal trauma of all sorts.
There are many life situations which can lead to PTSD, which should not be left untreated because it can damage our lives even forever at times...and damage our abilities to make the most of our God-given gifts becaue we act & react subconsciously due to the trauma & not even be aware of the stimulus for our actions.
All of the above categories deserve the best help available. I do not pretend to be the very best therapist ever, but I love my work and working with folks dealing with these issues, and clients tell me that I am really good at it. I know I will try my very best to bring some resolution, peace and joy back into your lives as we work on such issues together.
