Is pain from your past and worries about the future making it hard for you to enjoy the present? Do you struggle to find joy and meaning in your life? Would you like to live life robustly with a sense of serenity and freedom? My passion is to empower you to heal from past wounds, grow into the person you intuitively are, thrive in relationships, and experience a resilient peace while engaged in life. In a safe and supportive atmosphere, I utilize a psychobiological approach collaborating with you to restore your instinctual capacity to rebound from past and present experiences.
My approach to counseling is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and geared towards trauma specific treatment. I am certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I also utilize the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model and the Somatic Experiencing modality.
EMDR is a physiologically based therapy. Scientific research has established EMDR as an evidence based practice for the treatment of PTSD, anxiety/panic attacks, body dysmorphic disorder, phobias, depression, disturbing memories, grief, dissociative disorder, stress reduction, emotional/sexual/physical abuse, and others.
