A Good Hard Journey Awaits
How are you amid the fallout of economic, political, social flux of the last several years? Many have realized how sad, angry, and afraid they are -- and maybe always have been. It's as if large scale upheavals have rattled into view personal unease and disease, the signs and symptoms of which can't be suppressed any longer. Regardless of cause, people have told me they're feeling discouraged if not hopeless, distracted if not dissociated, overwhelmed if not burnt out, irritable if not angry, and troubled if not really anxious about a felt discrepancy between who they thought they and their world were and who they really are.
Mindful Psychotherapy & Trauma Resolution's sole provider, Jen Erickson, can help navigate the uncertainty.
Change can feel like it takes forever, like the painfully slow turning of a barge. It also happens on a dime. The conditions that shape life-altering change, whether experienced as gradual or instantaneous, can range from the traumatic to the insight-based. Jen employs the latter in the service of resolving the former. She draws on mindfulness practice, trauma training, attachment theory, and spiritual study to help people grow through hard times such that troubling reactions to overwhelming personal/social stress become creative opportunities for understanding and health of body, mind, spirit, and relationship.
In her therapist role*, Jen has 15 years of experience with individual adults experiencing symptoms of anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, and C-PTSD as a result of direct trauma (e.g., childhood or adolescent abuses, military experiences) or vicarious trauma (e.g., exposure to or responsibility for traumatized people). She has worked well with academics and professionals, health care providers including therapists, military service members, the chronically and terminally ill, people who feel worse after prior trauma therapy or psychiatric intervention, parents of troubled teens, college students, individuals facing infidelity, and adult children of alcoholic and/or personality disordered parents (e.g., borderline PD, narcissistic PD).
It is Jen's hope that your work with her eases your emotional and physical suffering, deepens your awareness, sharpens your insight, broadens your perspective, bolsters your courage, and expands your compassion such that the challenging situations you encounter look and feel less daunting and more workable over time. She wants to help you, and by extension everyone you impact, cultivate the conditions for positive change.
Whether you're in a tough situation right now or wanting to face an old trauma or ongoing pattern, if you have a sense that there is more to understand, appreciate, enjoy, and offer in this lifetime, please get in touch. You can book a free 15 minute phone or video call to ask questions and explore the possibilities.
