Will the new normal ever become just normal ?  Will some kind of flow of life return?  Are you feeling stuck AND at the same time you don’t know what to do ? Does your partner tell you you need to talk to someone ? Do YOU tell your self you really want to talk to someone but you put it off ?  That is normal.  

You Can Learn to Listen to and Trust in Your SELF

We have faced ourselves and our loved ones with masks on.  Now they are off.  Is that okay ??  – Literally! Shedding the symbolic mask remains the task.  If you were having trouble getting through the day before the pandemic, it’s likely you are now, even more so.  Frustration, sadness, “what’s the point” emotions, feelings and thoughts keep you in fear and keep you from YOU.  And YOU cannot contribute to your life and your environment around you if you are not your REAL SELF – whatever that is.  Finding and Being your authentic self is hard work. Get ready to face those places you thought you didn’t have the courage to.  Because you do have the guts to do this !

Can Therapy Help Me?

It depends. Are you willing to let go of judging yourself ? Especially if are you anxious or depressed !  Instead of being afraid, can you be curious about your thoughts and feelings ?  Are  you willing to be a bit courageous ?  Let me help you release worry and stress and get you back to your Truth  And using the somatic therapy of Brainspotting, let’s also release the physiological impacts of traumatic experiences.

In a space of acceptance, active listening and non-judgement, I will invite you to identify your inner areas of confusion, of obstacles to your own strengths. that working together, you and I may begin the process of finding YOUR unique solutions.
Leave your emotional baggage in my office.  Understand why you made the choices  you did.  Begin to see and accept your Self as you are right now — for better and worse.

Talk Therapy and Brainspotting

Speaking with an objective professional places the emphasis on YOU.  It helps you see your self from other perspectives. Talking releases some self-judgment, fear, and shame.  Brainspotting is a powerful, effective brain-body therapy that accesses non-verbal parts of your brain and releases negative and upsetting experiences from the  body at an organic, physiological level.  BrainSpotting gives you the capacity to release the fight, flight, and freeze reactions from your primitive brain and body reactions so you may feel free to act and re-act in healthy ways.  Change is subtle but noticeable.  Now you can:

Now I realized that I’ve been walking around with my eyes closed.  I’m seeing the world for the first time…I feel liberated — ( after BrainSpotting ) — Lisa M. 

I realized in the days after the BrainSpotting, that I felt better.  I didn’t TRY to feel better it just happened.  It was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.  I’ve been feeling more relaxed. — John S.

I can’t believe how much my view of myself was dependent on how my family saw me (still as a child).   It’s taken 40 years and a few ( months of ) therapy sessions , but I am finally beginning to see myself as a competent, successful, happy woman.  As I respect my Self more, my family is seeing me differently and they are treating me with more respect.  — Allison C.
