I have experience working with clients who present anxiety depression and anxiety. I am sensing
that you need someone who can really hear you regarding your mental health diagnosis of Bipolar
and the PTSD you have resulting from your sexual assault and verbally abusive marriage. Rose!!
The first step you had taken was to admit that you had gone through a traumatic experience and
how you have reflected on your life to understand what was going on with you. Great Start! Feel
free to review over the different therapist and decide who you can relate to for counseling. Know
I am here as well to guide you through the process of self-awareness and what you can do to create
a productive lifestyle. Important steps to recovery is really understanding the dynamics of mental
health related issues as they associate with major parts of your life. As a counselor, I am centered
on getting deep down to the root of our experiences. If you need someone to talk to, you are free to
email me and we can begin when you are ready. Thanks for sharing!
You may have Bipolar disorder that is not being properly medicated. However, trauma can look like a lot of other diagnoses including ADHD and bipolar. I think you need to talk to someone who can help you sort all this out. Because if you have trauma causing symptoms, then your caregivers are not on the right track. Also when someone has developmental trauma (that is trauma under 18 when we are still developing) we tend to blame ourselves. What did I do wrong. It is not safe to blame our parents our caregivers because they feed and house us. It makes more sense to a kid to blame themselves. Then we carry that throughout life on our backs. Have a look at my profile and if you think I can help, then please contact me.
Take care and all the best,
