EMPOWERING YOU for healing
I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that
we will ever do.
"Seeing Genevieve is one of the best investments I've made in myself. I saw her for about a year, mostly to process trauma. We did art therapy, talk therapy, and EMDR. Genevieve helped me to heal as well as learn about how to take care of myself. She is very skilled and intuitive, and her guidance in EMDR was very effective. Her patience was meaningful as she let us go at my pace and was never judgmental. You can trust her to be there for you and gently help you through your process."
I AM ANTI-RACIST, BLM, PRO-BODY AUTONOMY, SEX POSITIVE AND GENDER AND QUEER AFFIRMING
The way I work is trauma informed. I create a safe therapeutic environment through collaboration, transparency, and encouraging empowerment for choice.
My treatment is focused on
lasting growth and deep change.
I work from an Attachment Theory perspective,
which means that I believe our early relationships with our caregivers have a great effect on our later relationships in life, and on the way we view the world.
When these experiences are wounding instead of nurturing they effect our ability to have fulfilling relationships. These Relational or "attachment" wounds come from long-term neglect, abuse, or misattunement.
We get stuck in familiar patterns of relationship toxicity. It feels frustrating and hopeless.
This is the kind of complex trauma I help people to heal.
Yes, you can go from insecure to earned secure attachment.
Trauma fragments us.
Dissociating and fragmenting are mechanisms we use to survive these awful experiences. You will get to know these fragmented parts, and develop a secure relationship with yourself. All parts of you are welcome in our therapy.
