Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked as an Intensive Care Nurse and Educator. I have witnessed the importance of integrating mind, body and spirit in the role of healing. In my work I utilize techniques from a variety of theories in an attempt to identify and resolve issues you are facing. To achieve your goals, I employ Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ) for trauma, Guided Imagery, Expressive Arts and Sandtray. I help clients reclaim parts of self eclipsed by childhood woundedness. My focus is to empower you to find your authentic voice and inner wisdom.

Utilizing EMDR therapy, body awareness, animal-assisted therapy and other holistic approaches, I wish to offer a truly transformative experience.
Imagine for a moment feeling more calm and at ease, connected to your body-feeling like you understand yourself and can meet your own needs. What if you didn't have to hide or feel small anymore? Instead of the constant chatter that you are not good enough or the never ending battle with your nerves, consider what it would feel like to experience a calm body and quiet mind all while feeling energized, trusting yourself, sleeping great, feeling good in your body, and feeling more connected in your relationships.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Monterey or for a Monterey EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
