Meet Electra Byers
Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like you know all the rules and what you are “supposed to do” but somehow can’t get where you want to go? As your therapist, it is my goal to help you feel at home in your mind, body, and heart. I can help deconstruct and shift your “shoulds” into something that feels more authentic and meaningful to you. We also can dig into your past and explore how old coping mechanisms that may have helped at one time are now limiting. I am trained in a myriad of techniques—including mindfulness and EMDR—to gently guide your mind and body back to the present moment to a state of well-being and resiliency.
I believe in your innate goodness and will always remind and point this out to you. I cannot tell you what is right/wrong or healthy/unhealthy and I resist being another voice telling you what you are “supposed to do”. My job is to provide a warm and accepting space to not just think and talk but to feel the big emotions. I will ask questions, reflect, and ponder alongside you as we rediscover your inherent wisdom and regain a sense of freedom.
My clients tend to be high functioning humans who feel caught in their anxious minds, trauma, or simply desire support in living a more authentic and meaningful life. I work with people suffering from trauma, panic attacks, anxiety, life changes and transitions, grief, disordered eating, binge eating disorder, low self esteem, poor body image, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (like "postpartum depression"), among many more.
Are you here to work on a relationship problem? Relationship work can be incredibly rewarding and foundational for a sustainable couplehood or family. I help couples gain clarity on why they are in relationship, argue efficiently and productively, and investigate why we show up how we do in relationship. While I enjoy couples in all life stages, I particularly enjoy working with new parents and pre-marital counseling.
Let’s connect. I’d love to hear from you.
