"Most people suffer from some form of emotional trauma. Emotional trauma is a rewiring of the brain, in which many of us can carry into our adult lives."
Do you have feelings of anxiety, low self-worth, stress, depression, or being stuck? Are you angry, irritable, and lash out? Are you hindered emotionally, relationally (couples, parenting, family), sexually, professionally?
Our early attachment experiences and love lessons, or lack thereof, model how we view ourselves as adults. It sets the tone for our ability to be vulnerable and authentic, which can manifest in high reactivity, limitations, and even disorders. If we were taught love under difficult circumstances that dealt with betrayal, inconsistency, intrusiveness, unmet needs, lack of attunement, mental illness, abandonment, abuse or addiction, this shapes our emotional balance and we seek to repeat the cycle.
At Pinkerton Psychotherapy, that inheritance doesn’t have to be accepted and the cycle can be broken. We collaboratively empower you to create a new narrative of self-actualization and awareness, basically a new story in your head that doesn’t encompass trauma.
Everyone is “enough”, yet few realize that. In fact, YOU are amazing and we are here to help you heal so you believe it.
As a parent, it’s hard to watch your child struggle, and the teen years bring a new set of challenges. We can assist your child in working through challenges as well as provide tools for emotional regulation.
We offer the ADOS testing for autism (18 months to adults) and assist with the skill sets to manage parenting a child with autism. Dealing with a child with ADHD comes with different parameters of parenting.
Learn to focus on the present by reconnecting with yourself, your surroundings and everyone around you in guided meditation. Focus on a connection with your body and mind in our Somatic movement therapy class.
Families don’t blend together naturally; they have to build together in steps. We help families process feelings associated with divorce, blending families, and coparenting in high conflict situations.
