I believe that the first step toward a more healthy life begins with the decision to facilitate change. That decision is wise and brave, but it can also bring up feelings of fear or sadness. I can assist you as you move through these emotions into a period of positive transition. In the process, obstacles in your life can be transformed into stepping stones toward greater self awareness and joy.

I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing anxiety, overwhelm, grief, trauma/PTSD, and relationship issues, as well as those who are simply seeking greater self-awareness and insight. My clients tend to be curious, creative, out-of-the-box thinkers who are highly motivated to create change in their lives. I believe in drawing upon my clients' inherent strengths and sense of resiliency. I am particularly interested in the link between the body and mind, and enjoy teaching my clients practical tools to help improve their daily lives. I am trained in both EMDR and Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM).

The process of healing in therapy is a journey - one that opens doors to see ourselves differently and accept ourselves more fully. It allows for there to be space to sit with our innermost thoughts and feelings as we bear witness to the courageous process towards renewal and growth. Through a safe, genuine, and empathetic therapeutic experience, my goal as a psychotherapist is to provide an opportunity for my clients to express their pain and hardships as we explore ways to move towards fulfillment, wellness, and achieving their goals in life.

Are you interested in decreasing anxious feelings and improving your mood? Does thinking about issues become confusing rather than helpful? I work with individuals to slow down rapid thoughts and gain a greater sense of control. Clients are able to become more in tune with themselves through their participation inside and outside of counseling sessions. This is a mindfulness approach that taps the inner strengths of each individual to promote healing and growth. In a safe affirming environment, clients learn new perspectives on whatever has troubled them and begin to heal. Clients' input and questions are always welcome.

Better is possible. Crises, life transitions, and losses can bring new triggers to old traumas. You may find yourself struggling with feelings that are debilitating, even immobilizing. Anxiety, sadness, and overwhelm can leave you feeling unable cope in healthy, appropriate ways. But it can get better, and you don't have to go at it alone. Therapy is an invitation to attend to your feelings and thoughts. In the deep reflection that therapy allows, you can become aware of the choices hidden behind the pain and confusion. You can gain reconnection to your core, essential self. You can move towards recovery and wholeness.

These are challenging times that can lead to feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and loneliness. It can also be a difficult time to hold hope when the world feels so chaotic. My desire is to provide a space that is warm, compassionate, and empathetic so you don't have to deal with these feelings alone. I typically work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship difficulties, grief, life transitions, and issues related to spirituality. I work with clients to process pain centering around issues of belonging, identity, and safety so they can find new ways of relating to themselves and the world.

You may have noticed painful patterns in your life, which could include: harsh beliefs about yourself and others, difficult feelings that contribute to your struggles, or actions that run counter to your hopes, dreams, and goals. But where there is darkness, there is also light! Awareness increases your ability to create internal conditions that are no longer fertile ground for fear, anger, resentment, anxiety, or hopelessness. Awareness can increase your capacity to trust your own wisdom/instinct and help you in developing self-compassion.

Dr. Thomas believes that the goals of therapy are: symptom removal (initially), alleviation of pain, facilitation of personal growth, basic character change, and to remove obstacles blocking individuals’ paths. She subscribes to German psychoanalyst, Karen Horney’s view that the human being has an inbuilt propensity toward self-realization. If obstacles are removed, the individual will develop into a mature, fully realized adult, just as an acorn will develop into an oak tree. So, a therapist’s job is identifying and removing the obstacles. Everyone has a yearning for self-realization.

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.
