I don't believe you're broken. You might believe that. But I simply can't join you. You can improve your life. You are capable of doing so. But maybe you're not doing so. That's not because you can't. The issue here is being stuck. Stuck in a defensive autonomic state: flight, fight, shut down or freeze. You're stuck. Not broken.
There is hope.

I love being a therapist and I love teaching about trauma and mental health.
From East Side San Jose to the Mission District of San Francisco. In Stockton or even the more affluent Palo Alto.
Trauma has been a constant underlying factor with nearly everyone I've worked with since 2008 - in the public schools, county outpatient clinics, group homes, foster care, juvenile halls and online private practice. It's become the core focus of my professional development, especially the Polyvagal Theory.
