If you are willing to empathically embrace your present life and ready to activate your physical, mental and creative self - you certainly can improve your emotional landscape and improve your well-being. I am here to assist you by providing a safe, supportive and mindful space for your journey of healing. Together, we will re-define your feelings, collaboratively nurture your self-awareness and esteem, establish some goals, and encourage new dreams. In this process of a meaningful, client-centered interaction, I believe you can establish a new relationship to self, awareness to others, and build skills to better manifest your ever-changing life. I wish to inspire those changes you might need in order to lead a thriving life.

The various activities during therapy sessions will address issues from a creative/expressive angle together with intellectual/thinking/talking perspective. This integrative approach using mindfulness, movement, imagery, art making, visualization and verbalization can develop from simple to more complex - "being in the experience" and embodied present moments. These processes are guided and structured by me, or completely self-directed as therapy progresses, and you are ready to do so. You ARE when you move, create and express.

My approach is based on my strong belief in each client’s potential and ability to move from, through and beyond personal traumas and emotional pain in a clear direction of present, and more meaningful life.

Joy, as a basic emotion, can be harvested daily, if you don’t give up on your becoming!

At our first visit, we’ll discuss your present and past in great detail, including the concerns that prompted you to seek treatment. Based on our conversation, I will offer initial impressions and recommendations for our work together. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of the ways your mind works, cultivate better coping strategies, recognize areas in your life where you can begin to take back control from habitual behaviors, and start you on a path to better health and functioning, all while exploring the deeper, less conscious influences on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You’ll also receive homework, morning practices, and tools to use between sessions to deepen the work and to appease the parts of us that want the process to feel tangible and productive.

Your sense of self is derived from your day to day events, history, culture, education, and your parents. This is done through the activation of your biological sensory system. Once data is taken in through your senses and processed by your mind, your thoughts produce an array of emotions which eventuate your experience and ultimately produce your truth about life. If you are not aware of your belief system, your thoughts and emotions will wear you down like an app depleting the battery life of your smartphone when gone unchecked.

Hence, with a background in systems theory, I discovered the power to change the patterns of our story line. The gift of presence and the freedom to choose is what I desire to give to you. I do this by using your feelings as an important process towards self-awareness because feelings become the clue to your thoughts, behaviors, and belief systems.

I do not instruct you with an alternate interpretation of feelings; rather, I ask process questions to increase your higher thinking skills. For instance, I will ask you how you observe your pain rather than how you feel or think about your pain. My goal is always the same regardless of symptom, religion, culture or gender.

As a systems therapist this is liberating because it allows me to meet you where you are at. I listen, ask process questions, validate your experience, and provide compassionate care so you can pass the barriers that hold you back from trusting yourself.

Do you struggle with asking for what you want, saying no, and want to feel more confident and empowered? Do you want to communicate with more ease and authenticity? Do you feel insecure or anxious in romantic relationships, or find yourself questioning your worth and repeating negative patterns? Maybe you’re aware of these things and you’ve tried to change but don’t know how. Maybe you don’t believe that change is possible. Humans have evolved to flourish, but sometimes we get tripped up in the process of becoming who we want to be. This is normal, but it’s uncomfortable at best and painful at worst - and there is a solution for it.

Blossoming into the person you want to be means letting go of old stuff that’s no longer serving you. It also asks you to embrace your hopes and dreams. Both of these processes can be challenging. I’m here to do this work with you, at a pace that feels right to you. It’s not just my job but my honor and delight to accompany you on this journey.

I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an effective form of empirically-supported psychotherapy. I would be honored to support you in clarifying your goals, calming your anxiety, stepping into your confidence, improving your communication, and living your best life. I look forward to connecting to create the future you want.

Inspired Healing Services, LLC is a counseling practice with Licensed Counselors and Counselors and Social Workers in training, in West Haven, Connecticut, who specializes in anxiety, trauma, career stress, and internal conflict. We also sees clients for existential challenges, including those due to life transitions and a general confusion about what direction they want their life to head in.

When working with clients for anxiety, our team uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients understand how their symptoms are presenting. This often entails unpacking their particular distortions, their beliefs about failing at work, and any generalizations that may be harmful to their perceptions of themselves. Our approach is client-centered, and we really strives to help clients challenge their negative cognitive processes in order to get to a place of greater self-acceptance and empowerment.

We also uses trauma-focused CBT when helping clients navigate trauma. This may entail having clients rewrite their own narratives; we often weave in mindfulness skills. This can help clients get back in touch with their present reality, and reduce the extent to which they feel the past controls their thoughts and memories. We are careful and compassionate when working with trauma, and always open to looking at current triggers and how the trauma response is affecting them.
