Using EMDR, talk therapy, storytelling, self-compassion and forgiveness exploration among other interventions, I will help you to move from surviving to thriving by working together to define and achieve your mental health goals. I’ll encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone in order to achieve results, but never outside your safety zone. You’ll move from post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth, giving you hope (and a plan!) for the future you deserve. No one is ever broken beyond repair. I also offer restorative dialogue facilitation for couples and families who aim to develop healthier relationships, peacefully close or change relationships, overcome hurts, offer apologies and achieve forgiveness. This process usually involves meeting with each individual a few times to set goals and prepare to come into safe and structured dialogue to achieve those goals, and to develop effective listening and sharing skills. Then we meet together (in person or online) on common ground, ready for productive communication.
