“Feeling stuck in disturbing feelings like anxiety and nervousness? Anger or depression? Guilt or shame? Worry, fear or even panic? Finding it hard to keep self-esteem up as you keep thinking discouraging thoughts, like: “I’m just not good enough”? I can’t succeed”? “I can’t handle it”? Are there some behaviors you do “too much or too little,” which are blocking your ability to love, work, play, and enjoy life? Does it seem confusing that you have these problems even though there may be much good in your life?
In life some suffering will be unavoidable. But it is good to reach out for understanding and competent help to heal as soon as possible. I firmly believe that since the development of EMDR, long-term emotional suffering is unnecessary. Remaining “stuck” is unnecessary.
From my 10 years of experience with EMDR (I am Certified and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, guiding other EMDR therapists) I love seeing how EMDR can clear out disturbing emotions, limiting beliefs and behaviors, and traumas. Once that happens, clients spontaneously access their true personalities. Their spirits, strengths and success-abilities are enhanced. To me, this makes it a great privilege to “walk alongside” my clients as they heal.
For over 25 years I’ve been using family systems therapy (the Bowen theory) to help individuals and people in relationships of all kinds. I find this a sound way to help you see choices for making your side of the relationship more mature than it may have been previously. Clients gain understanding and acceptance of the limitations of each unique relationship. The paradox is that they then discover their relationships gradually becoming more satisfying.
One basic principle of the Bowen theory is that we all have certain chronic anxieties that make it harder for us to be emotionally mature in relationships while under stress. One key goal is to reduce these anxieties. I find EMDR is an outstanding way to accomplish that aim.
Please take this opportunity now to improve your future. I look forward to the empowerment of your best self, with all the awesome qualities and talents that may be forgotten within you, but are not lost.
I will welcome a call from you, and am very interested to know what may be bothering you now. Please tell me how you would like your life to be different in the future. That list of goals will guide us in our work together, and once they are achieved, will tell us when our work is complete. Please call me at (619) 283-5665.
