I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and solution-focused approaches.
Sometimes life can become pretty overwhelming. Everyone at some point needs a helping hand in making sense of stressful events, finding ways to cope, and taking steps toward becoming the person he or she wants to be. When working with my clients, my goal is to be that helping hand. I tailor my approach to clients' strengths and needs, with the focus of assisting individuals in reaching their goals and becoming the best versions of themselves. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, life changes, grief, emotion regulation, or stress management.

Through the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), the memories become just memories and not something that controls you.
Do you feel like your past is controlling your present? You want to live in the present and enjoy the present, but the past keeps pulling you down. You want to move forward and make decisions which will make your present and future better, but the memories of what has occurred will not allow you. You know you are a loving person and have a lot of offer the world. You are ready to make a change.

Receiving therapy doesn't have to be a lifelong commitment but rather it can be a short term solution to help assist you through some of life's most stressful or painful times. I start out with new clients by building rapport and getting to know them to help them feel more comfortable in therapy.I want to ensure my clients always feel safe in my office and I work to maintain this safety throughout our time together. I use an eclectic therapeutic approach. My practice usually focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy and trauma informed practices.

I have experience with trauma-focused therapy, EMDR Therapy, Brainspotting, CBT, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and formal Zen Buddhism and meditation training.
Life can be difficult. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and to lose our sense of well-being and security. We look around each day and wonder why other people seem to have no trouble living life free from the sort of difficulties with which we struggle. We can begin to feel hopeless. But there is something inside each and every one of us, something beautiful and strong that cannot be touched by our trauma and recurring troubles, but can be obscured by them. Reconnecting with this part of ourselves in a safe, healing atmosphere can help us meet life’s challenges with a greater measure of peace with ourselves and the world.

Sessions with individual clients is an interweave of ACT, CBT, EMDR , and most importantly, compassion.

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 Alton or for an Alton 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.
