About

Many clients I work with present with symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Some have more complex presentations with multiple diagnoses and chronic health conditions. Most of my clients have experienced some traumas, whether it is a single significant trauma or small repeated traumas such as abuse, neglect, exposure to domestic violence, and disrupted attachment. This inspired my interest in the modalities I use as they are trauma informed interventions. Together we identify and address significant past experiences as well as learn to acknowledge and meet own needs for love, connectedness and a sense of worthiness.
The main modalities I work with are EMDR, Polyvagal Theory-Based therapy, Somatic and Schema therapies. The Polyvagal theory and Schema Therapy can be effectively applied during the initial phases of EMDR therapy. We work collaboratively to explore significant past experiences and develop an understanding of the client’s nervous system and ways of coping.
If we were to work together, the focus of the first few sessions would be on creating a safe therapeutic environment where regulation is possible. While being curious and learning about my clients I ensure my clients maintain a sense of choice and control. I pay particular attention to connecting with the client and offering regulating energy when needed.
