Trauma Recovery & Couples Counseling in Arroyo Grande
New Beginnings Therapy in San Luis Obispo County offers individual therapy, couples counseling, and trauma recovery in Arroyo Grande, California.
In therapy I provide a non-judgmental, safe environment where I support you in regaining your life and your relationships through relief from trauma, depression, anxiety, and relational distress. I opened New Beginnings Therapy with the intention of doing what I love: Inspiring transformation, growth, self-compassion, and excitement about living and loving. These transformative changes are achieved through E.M.D.R. and trauma processing, couples therapy (I’m trained in both Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and The Gottman Method), positive psychology, mindfulness, self-compassion and self-acceptance based interventions. I specialize in working with complex trauma and intense stress, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low motivation, a lack of self-acceptance and depleted self-worth.
So many of us struggle with feeling unsatisfied, unbalanced, and in despair due to trauma, relationship difficulties, depression, and anxiety. There is nothing abnormal or shameful about struggling; suffering and struggling is part of our human experience. However, this does not have to be your life story, nor should it be. If you are seeking some serious change in your life that you can be proud of and that makes you feel more in sync with your aspirations, your values, and leads you to have more passion and motivation in life and relationships- you've come to the right place.
You probably know that you want, need, or deserve a better quality of life that includes balance, love, and joy, but you aren't sure how to make the changes necessary to achieve this on your own. Together we can promote your own inherent ability to manage and feel more in control of your emotions so that you can stop letting the past or current stressors have so much power over your present, and bring back balance and passion into your life.
