Do any of these sound like you?
- You keep getting in the way of your own relationships- when you start getting close to people, you always do something to sabotage it
- Thoughts of being abandoned and rejected make you want to leave or reject others before they can hurt you
- You want to understand who you are and how you work, but your internal world feels too overwhelming, dark, or difficult
- You want your life to be different, but you’re not sure what you need or even what that might look like
- You lost a loved one a while ago, but the grief is still flooding you and you don’t know how to handle it
- Your strong emotions and intense reactions are connected to the things that have happened to you, but you just don’t know how to move past them
If so, you’re not alone
You need a supportive therapist who knows how to work with other therapists. The therapeutic frame can be difficult for therapists to step into on the client side. Therapists are often great at defending their vulnerabilities in session. You need space to just be a client and feel heard, understood, and helped.
In sessions with me, you’ll have space to explore your thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. Through this healing relationship, you’ll learn to pay attention to what’s going on inside and create gentle changes without shame.
As we get to know each other, our sessions will be a secure place for you to explore challenging concepts, heal areas of shame, and develop trust in yourself and your capacity for healthy relationships. This process can be uncomfortable, but I’m with you every step of the way. We’ll go at your pace to make sure we’re challenging your old habits while creating new ones.
Let me introduce myself
My name is Jessica Brohmer and I’m a licensed psychotherapist living in the Monterey Bay Area. I became a therapist to help people explore their inner worlds, understand their experience, manage their mental health, and have healthy relationships with others.
When you learn to check in with yourself and understand yourself, you can fully show up with your authentic thoughts and emotions without feeling overwhelmed or controlled by them.
The process of self discovery and healing can be long, but I am here to support you. I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you to get comfortable with their thoughts and feelings, develop comfort and trust in their relationships, notice patterns and insights, and make meaningful changes that create peace and calm.
What are EMDR and depth therapy?
Online EMDR Therapy
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I am trained in the SAFE method of EMDR which incorporates a somatic and attachment focus to the standard EMDR methods. This kind of therapy focuses on healing memories that are affecting your life today. Many people like EMDR because it can help even when you don’t exactly know why you’re having these issues. Learn more about EMDR and how it works here.
Online Depth Therapy
Depth therapy is relational. The process is collaborative, and we’ll work together to decide how we’ll move forward to your goals. We’ll explore your inner world together in a safe, non-judgmental space. As we connect with your pain in a safe environment, you’ll learn to approach your thoughts and emotions with compassion and kindness. Learn more about depth therapy here.
