EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) taps into your own brain's natural mechanism for healing during sleep.
I believe in every person's ability to learn positive belief systems that will promote growth and spiritual balance. My niche is working with clients who feel stuck in their life and do not always have a defined negative experience to explain why they are feeling stuck. Often times it is hard to identify a single memory that solidifies a negative belief system about oneself. "This is just who I am," I will hear, but everyone has the potential to move their life forward.

The client drives the process and can choose to explore any of the above approaches, EMDR, OR traditional talk therapy.
Do you want to create change? Do you want to learn how to make intrapersonal and interpersonal shifts in order to move through your life with more ease? With 27 years of experience, I am a seasoned dance/movement therapist. However, I not only offer body centered approaches but a variety of other creative modalities such as art making, role play, and creative writing to awaken our healthiest parts. I have consistently witnessed the power of incorporating these non-verbal and artistically expressive techniques into the traditional counseling process.

We are complex beings and I incorporate a variety of therapeutic interventions as appropriate including EMDR, mindfulness, cbt, cprt (child-parent relationship therapy) and play therapy.
We have all experienced various levels of loss, harm or violation in our lives and this will have an effect on us. Are you experiencing disordered eating; unwanted sexual behavior; depression, anxiety, anger or turning to substances for relief? Often people feel a pain inside they are unable to understand or articulate. Perhaps you're frustrated and beginning to feel hopeless or helpless to change. Transformation and change is possible but it is a process, not an event. Research shows that finding the right "fit" in a therapist is one of the most important factors in having a transformative experience in therapy.

I am EMDR trained and take a person-centered approach to therapy, incorporating a variety of interventions to create a treatment plan that is suited to each client’s needs.
Traumatic experiences are like tangled knots of grief, shame and guilt, silenced thoughts and emotions, and triggers that can affect daily living. However, when processed and unraveled, those experiences can help us to develop an empowered life. My passion is to work with individuals who have experienced trauma, grief, and other difficulties. I especially enjoy working with those who have been through childhood and sexual trauma and abuse. Witnessing individuals free themselves from the negative influences of past perpetrators brings me joy. And I believe that to be invited into any area of trauma or grief, trust must be earned.

I have training in EMDR and am currently working toward certification in this technique.
I use a strengths focused approach to therapy. Moving forward requires a look at what a person is already doing well in addition to the challenges in their lives. My approach includes insight oriented and cognitive techniques which I utilize in my practice. It takes a very strong person to admit they need help and to take the steps necessary to find a therapist who will be the best fit possible. In my view, therapy is teamwork and the therapist and client must work collaboratively for the best possible outcome of their therapy experience.

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 Chicago or for a Chicago 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.
