Do you ever wish you could say, “shut up”? Being assertive is not something that is taught in society. We are taught to be nice. The guilt of trying to make everyone happy while trying to make ourselves happy is overwhelming, For many people dealing with anxiety, stress, or trauma, it can be difficult to develop healthy boundaries with our loved ones. A lot of people tend to minimize their trauma by saying “it really wasn’t that bad.” Together we can learn how to effectively cope with our traumas, implement firm boundaries to protect ourselves, and figure out ways to make ourselves happy by putting our needs and wants first.
Using trauma informed therapeutic interventions, we can work to find coping skills that work for you. We will work at your pace because you are the expert in your life. You can expect to feel liberated in your decision making, affirmed that your feelings are valid, and feel empowered to be assertive in ways you thought you never could. You will be treated like the unicorn you are. In working with me, you will be seen, heard, and supported.
