I have been in private counselling practice for 15 years, and in wellness, personal development and the media for 25 years. My practice draws self-referring, high-functioning adults/couples with addiction, phobia, anxiety, depression and attachment disorders affecting their lives beyond their historical, current or perceived ability of self-control. In couples, I usually begin individually to create safety and self-awareness, then back together towards clear self-advocacy, expression and to build trustful communication. EMDR in the couple context can clear a lot of old trauma and wounded pattern-associations that mire us in destructive relational dynamics.

EMDR relieves a great deal of the 'therapy' pressure/stigma for the client, allowing complex trauma to shift rapidly and experientially. It is client-empowering, helping them 'let go' of that which was 'hidden' from their conscious awareness. I facilitate the means by which they can redefine their meaning structure in their world (transpersonal).

As a 6th Dan in Aikido, I bring experience from a defensive art that develops calmness and ready presence, overriding the 'limbic' fight/flight reactivity of our subconscious patterns to daily stress. There is substantial overlap between the process of EMDR therapy in reprocessing old traumas, and this powerful mind/body practice.
