Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, chronic pain and relationship difficulties. As a somatic therapist certified in EMDR I work with the body-mind connection. I have found this to be more effective with quicker results than traditional talk therapy. EMDR has an effect on the way the brain process information, which helps a memory become just a memory and not something that effects us viscerally. The combination of tuning into the body (with somatic techniques) while using EMDR bi-lateral simulation releases emotions that have been trapped in the body. By doing this many symptoms of anxiety, depression and chronic pain are relieved.

Life is a journey that should enhance who we are and should help us grow personally and professionally. I truly believe that events in life ‘‘happen for you, not to you.’’ When we adapt that mentality, we are able to utilize the obstacle in our lives as opportunities to grow and enhance our existence. In treatment I help my clients process past events that occurred in their lives in order for them to understand how those events affected their lives and shaped their existence. I helped my clients understand any unconscious defense mechanisms they are engaging that could be bringing harm to their lives. I am EMDR trained as well.

We all have unique stories that have shaped us. I believe healing is most transformative when we begin to understand the intersections that make us whole: the parts of ourselves that we value and celebrate as well as the parts that we criticize, deny or dislike. I want to know how you feel about your story and how it has impacted your sense of wholeness. My goal is to help you build a better understanding of the pain, distress or fear that holds you back from achieving the life you want so you can begin to make room for more joy and a meaningful existence.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

Becoming a mom can be incredibly hard when things don't go as planned. I specialize in perinatal mental health, helping women take care of their emotional and psychological well-being before, during and after pregnancy. If you've had a difficult pregnancy or childbirth, faced infertility or loss/pregnancy loss, you may be coping with challenges you couldn't have predicted. If you're not feeling like yourself and know that something isn't quite right, you're not alone. Postpartum depression and anxiety are common complications of pregnancy/birth, and many women find some aspect of childbirth traumatic.

My life is spinning out of control. I don’t know what to do with myself. How will I ever cope? Will this ever end? If you have ever experienced these thoughts or something similar, you are not alone. Whether finding a new job or settling down with a partner, sometimes life feels like a never-ending struggle. How you maneuver through life’s difficult circumstances can be emotionally and physically challenging. For example, moving to another country, city, or town (as I did when I migrated from London England to California) or the dramatic changes one experiences at the loss of a loved one.

Life is not a smooth road. There are many difficulties and challenges we face along the way. Sometimes we develop old wounds from the past that do not let us live the life we deserve. Those old wounds we call traumatic events. Traumatic events can develop from our childhood experiences, past relationships, employment, near death experiences or the death of a loved one. Traumatic events can continue to affect us in our daily life from experiencing nightmares to repeatedly viewing an unsettling image in our mind.

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 Pasadena or for a Pasadena 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.
