Stress and Trauma Therapy in Charlotte, NC

Live without doubts and worries getting in the way

Stress & Anxiety Therapy

You want to feel confident in your relationships and at work. You feel like you’ve been stepped on a little more than the rest and nothing is working out. You act put together but feel like if you show one crack, you’ll fall apart completely. You want to be looking forward, not backwards.

So, what’s in the way? Maybe it’s difficult things that have happened in the past that keep you stuck. The result is that you become frustrated, downhearted, and afraid. You might have guilt or shame about the way you’re feeling and acting. You’re wondering if things will always be this way and you’re trying to figure out where to go from here.

The truth is, you deserve to feel better. With all the roles you play in helping other people, you deserve to finally put yourself first. Seeking help is an act of generosity to yourself and those you care about. You’ve put off calling a therapist, telling yourself that you can deal with it on your own but know that your habits for coping are not getting any better. You fear that you’re falling further away from yourself and that no one really gets how bad it is.

You can feel like a better you.

Trauma Therapy

You have experienced past trauma and carry it with you to this day. You have tried to move past it, but you have a hard time finding joy in your every day life. Fears, memories, or anxiety haunts you. You wonder if you can ever feel normal again. You may have shared your experience with others who don’t know how to support you, or you may be holding onto your secret in shame or embarrassment. 

For all that you’ve been through, it’s time to give yourself some compassion. You can find a new normal. You can experience joy and be present in your life. Do not let trauma rob you of anymore of your life.

I am here to help.

You can find peace.

The good news is that things can improve. With a helping hand, you can find your way to feeling safe, sure of yourself, calm, and connected with the people who are meaningful to you. I know how hard it is to be exhausted and wonder if this will ever get better. I also know how hard it is to simply get started.

I’ve dedicated my life to helping people overcome their struggles and move forward. Getting started can be hard, and the idea of therapy can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Everyone, no matter how strong or successful, needs help at some point. I know life has been tough, but today I can help you start making things better. You can put yourself back in the driver’s seat of your life.

“Finding yourself is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got it’s hands on you.” ~ Emily McDowell
