I have been practicing psychotherapy with individuals and couples for over 20 years. I work with individual patients mostly using EMDR, a therapeutic technique to clear traumatic experiences which get "stuck" in emotions, body and brain and cause symptoms which bring clients into therapy. My other approaches to Individual Therapy are Psychodynamic and Mindfulness- based therapies.My reputation is that I am straight forward without harshness and I give constructive feedback. My goal is to understand root causes of the problems that bring people to therapy. We work together to gain insight and develop strategies to make change.
My work with couples is based on EFT. In sessions, we examine each person's attachment style and the emotions that are triggered in "communication" problems. We look at conflict in terms of predictable cycles, which lead to escalation and then practice ways of interaction using the language of attachment, emotions, vulnerability and empathy.
I am a relatioship therapist, whether working with individuals or couples. My belief is that relationships are what hurts most and also what brings most happiness. I think that the root causes of all pain are related to disruptions in intimacy, seperations, abandonements and attachment isues throughout life.
