Ken Takahashi, MA, LMFT, SEP, Marriage & Family Therapist in Oakland
Transformation will occur to you at a right timing with a right support. I am here for you to support your transformation. I will help enhance your innate ability to break patterns, utilizing cognitive, nervous & energetic methods. For instance, you have had a car accident before. You feel anxious whenever you see cars on the street. This means that the car accident is associated with the anxiety. I will help disconnect the anxiety from the car accident while rebuilding positive experiences in you. You will gradually re-associate the car accident with the positive experiences, transforming the old pattern.
I utilize Somatic Experiencing that helps you reduce the intensity of anxiety, Trauma, Panic Attacks, and dissociation. It helps separate emotions, thoughts and physical sensations from triggers that cause these symptoms. It breaks these patterns by regulating nervous system (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous System) within the normal range
I provide an EMDR session to reduce the intensity of trauma, panic attacks, anxiety that may originate from the past experiences or incidents. EMDR accesses to the brain and re-balances both sides of the brain with bilateral movement which is eye movement or bilateral tapping on the laps.
