Do you have a trauma, a significant loss, a relationship or a childhood memory, that seems to invade every part of your day, and you just can not seem to get past it? We all experience life events that change us, and therapy can help the healing process so you incorporate your pain into your life in a positive way. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting & Somatic Experiencing (SE) are very effective tools to help process areas in your life or in your body you are feeling stuck. You can regenerate your self, and experience life in a new way.

Trama, grief and loss, and spiritual/existential angst are my specialities. With EMDR, Brainspotting & SE, clients can become unstuck from the unnecessary suffering they have endured for too long.

EMDR, Brainspotting & SE focus on targeting areas in your brain and body where unprocessed trauma is stuck and facilitate releasing it in a new, illuminating and profound way.
