What's Your 'Normal'?
HAS 'JUST GETTING BY' BECOME A WAY OF LIFE?
As we struggle to persevere under the weight of anxiety, depression and mental distress, thriving takes a back seat to surviving.
We all have a survivor within us; a part that carries us through the bad times and holds us together when we feel like falling apart.
It's a brilliant evolutionary adaptation - and an unhappy way to live.
As "survivor" goes from being a part that protects us during times of stress to just who we are, it loses its adaptive value.
But what if it doesn't have to be that way?
What if there’s more to life than just surviving?
What if there’s hope?
From getting back to normal, to redefining the boundaries of normal - there is a better way.
With extensive training in trauma, attachment and neurology, I go beyond psychoanalytic and talk therapy - because unfortunately for most of us, if we were able to think our way out of our emotional state, we would have done it long ago.
Something more is needed for true transformation; something that reaches beyond the adult, logical self to the deepest layers of our being.
By combining mind, body and consciousness based therapies with attachment theory, EMDR, IFS, and somatic techniques, I help clients move from talking about their experience to processing through it. The goal is never "coping with" but "moving past."
THRIVING, NOT SURVIVING.
