There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
– Maya Angelou
Life is complicated and at times overwhelming. We welcome people of all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds as well as sexual and gender expressions. One of the most important aspects of entering therapy is being provided a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate space where you can allow your most authentic self to come through. Your needs and goals are understood from the perspective of your life experiences and how they are situated in your culture and worldview. Challenges in life can foster feelings of depression, grief, anxiety and panic. Through open collaboration, you will be supported and challenged to move past fears, hurts and conflicts to develop new avenues of expression, manners of thinking and successful ways of being.
Are you struggling with emotional reactions that make you feel stuck in a world that is unsafe, where your body is reactive and raw? Emotions may come quickly and intensely or not at all. Traumatic stress can make it difficult and at times impossible to fully engage in the joys of life. Interpersonal traumas, sexual assaults, domestic violence, and child sexual abuse, can leave you feeling betrayed, unable to trust, and shameful as additional components of the traumatic stress. The brain, body, mind and relationships are impacted by traumatic stress. Therapy can be an avenue for you to begin to reclaim control of your life.
