You can have self-confidence and secure, loving relationships.
I’m a licensed mental health counselor. I work by video and phone with people throughout New Mexico (including Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Carlsbad, and Las Cruces).
Overcome relationship issues.
If you have trouble finding lasting, loving relationships, you may need to learn more relationship skills. You may also have an insecure attachment style, which could cause you to anxiously seek relationships, to be overly independent, or to swing between seeking relationships and pulling away.
In therapy, we’ll review your successes and challenges each week. I’ll provide insight into the challenges, and I’ll empower you through guided imagery and training in mindfulness, empathy, and collaborative skills. Over time, this will activate your natural ability to have secure, loving relationships.
Heal from distressing experiences.
You may have been through psychological trauma (distressing life experiences like abuse, violence, sexual assault, accidents, disasters, or medical emergencies). If so, you may have upsetting memories, flashbacks, or nightmares, and you may feel agitated, irritable, or wary. You may also have trouble sleeping or concentrating. I can use EMDR (an effective therapy for psychological trauma and PTSD) to activate your mind’s natural ability to heal, freeing you of these symptoms.
Create the life you want.
Overcoming relationship issues and healing from distressing experiences can work together beautifully to help you create the life you want. As you grow and heal, you’ll start to feel more stable inside, with more self-confidence, more self-esteem, and stronger skills for having secure, loving relationships.
