You're great at what you do, but no one sees what's happening inside ...

I work with people who are successful in their fields and outside it looks like they have it all together, but inside things are starting to come apart. You might be a doctor, or a lawyer, or even a therapist, and you have worked hard for the success you have achieved. You know how to spend long days and nights working towards your goals, and sacrifice to achieve them. But no one sees the bouts of depression, one too many glasses of wine at night, or the rapid heart rate and racing thoughts that are making it difficult to sleep. 

Often times people as driven and intelligent as you are have a hard time coming to therapy. You may have survived some tough things from childhood, but you pushed past them to earn multiple degrees. You know how to work hard and you've achieved some recognition for that. Why should those things from your past bother you now? You've been driven for as long as you can remember, why should you start feeling burnt out now, when you're finally achieving some success?

When I sit with you, I work with a gentle tenacity. I'm going to be careful with the difficult places and emotions, but I'm also not going to ignore or slip past what's really causing this distress. I always want to know how our work is feeling to you, and I'll check in often. 

I have over 20 years of experience working in mental health. I am specially trained in a trauma-informed approach and I have extensive experience working with trauma. I am an expert in Vicarious Trauma and Compassion Fatigue, and give presentations and workshops on these issues.
