Therapeutic Options at Heartstrings
TRAUMA COUNSELING Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, attack or natural disaster. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, struggle in relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches, stomach pain or nausea. Whether your trauma had occurred in childhood or more recently, until resolved, it has a tendency to hold us captive and affect our everyday living. Through the use of a personalized combination of various effective trauma processing methods such as AEP,EMDR, IFS, Art Therapy, and Sandplay Therapy, we can address and resolve the underlying and root issues for the freedom you truly deserve.
DEPRESSION COUNSELING Depression can have a crippling effect on a person’s life, and it can also be very dangerous and life threatening. Many people suffering from severe depression will self-harm and contemplate taking their own lives at one point or another. Some of those people will actually attempt to commit suicide, and others might even be successful. Heartstrings counseling provides support to help connect you to life and living through using healthy methods, which can lead to a happier, more satisfying life. Through the use of the depth approach of existential psychotherapy, we guide you on your journey in a gentle, yet profound way to truly heal trauma and pain and discover a life of meaning.
INFERTILITY AND PREGNANCY/BABY LOSS COUNSELING Infertility is such a difficult experience. It creates major financial, emotional, mental stains. In addition to the crises of loss of the dream of parenthood, the trauma of infertility and/or baby loss has the ability to strain and even damage family relationships as well as friendships by impairing communications and interactions. Facing a loss of a child can be one of the most difficult times in a person's life. It causes a lot of pain and scars very deeply. We offer services to women and their partners, as well as their support systems coping with the stress of issues related to fertility challenges, infertility, loss and postpartum adjustment. Don't suffer in silence. Contact me today for caring and gentle support during this difficult time.
TEEN AND PRETEEN COUNSELING During our teen and preteen years, we find and explore who we are and who we want to be in this world, finding our place, our direction. Things can get confusing and painful. These are the times, when we need support the most. Whether you are going through a tough transition, are trying to find yourself, or are struggling with relationships, I am here to provide you with support that you need to help you process things and find your True North. Call for a free 30 min consultation to see if we are the right fit for you. CHILD PLAY THERAPY Childhood is full of meaningful events, developmental factors and transitions. There are times when a child might be experiencing difficulty during their development due to unforeseen events, trauma or being different. We are here to help them get back on line and find who they are, as well as learn how to deal with their challenges and regulate through difficult emotions. I use more directive approaches of EMDR, Zones of Regulation, DBT and Art Therapy, as well as a non directive approaches of Child Centered and Synergetic Play Therapy™ (SPT) designed to heal the child from inside out and support the child in changing their own perceptions of challenging events, as well as getting in touch with thier authentic self. Synergetic Play therapy approach is the first researched informed play therapy model to blend together neuroscience, attachment/attunement, therapist authenticity, physics, emotional congruence, nervous system regulation, and mindfulness/mindsight and more to get to the heart of the healing process for children.
TRANSITION COUNSELING Life is full of challenges: relationships, emotions, school, job and career stress, loss, changes in expectations and dreams. When we are in the middle of a transition, its sometimes hard to see various options or ways out, as well as the gold inside it all. Whether positive or negative, life transitions cause us to leave behind the familiar and force us to adjust to new ways of living. They can leave us feeling completely unprepared, feeling stuck, angry, anxious, stuck, sad, and withdrawn. I am really passionate about helping people take advantage of this fork in the road and find themselves again, while restoring balance, finding peace and renewed acceptance.
