When conventional talk therapy doesn't work at helping you resolve issues or find answers; try Hypnotherapy! Everything you've ever experienced is stored in your subconcious. With 10 plus years of experience, I teach you how to overcome, control, and manage behaviors. I help develop new patterns for lasting change. Your mind is always successful at allowing you to arrive at your goals. What may be getting in your way is the pattern of how you have learned to do things. In therapy, I focus on your goal and where you want to be. I believe finding out why is not worth it.

I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.

Is your past getting in the way of your present? The past can come back to haunt us in so many ways. In times of change and transition, old hurts rise to the surface and challenge us with challenging thougths and feelings. These thoughts leave you feeling disconnected from others, numb to your inner sense of knowing, overwhelmed with self doubt, and unsure of what to do next. This is not the real you. You are wired for connection and trust, but need some guidance to evoke this authentic self.

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 Santa Monica or for a Santa Monica 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.
