I am certified EMDR therapist and utilize somatic psychotherapy (the Trauma Resiliency Model), and mindfulness to help with the trauma.
Do you, or a loved one, struggle with the weight of depression or anxiety? There are moments in all of our lives when we feel stuck, indecisive, and confused. Life gets messy, things don't go according to plan, and there is no clear right or wrong. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.

I use EMDR and Somatic Experiencing as part of my therapy.
When we seek therapy it is usually because we reach a point when our problems and challenges outweigh our ability to cope with them. Sometimes we feel stuck in old patterns of behavior or relationships that no longer work for us and we wish to make changes. I serve as a collaborator with you on your journey of self discovery as you find new ways of being and making more appropriate life choices. I provide safety and support as you experience psychological understanding and growth and remain with you as you develop ways to handle life's burdens in more empowering ways.

I always value mindfulness, meditation, CBT, specific skills training, somatic work, and art/play therapy.
You've known that some issues have been always holding you back from reaching your full potential in life, career, and relationships. You realize that these unresolved and unattended issues do not serve your life, and keep sabotaging your happiness on different levels... Perhaps, you even tried working through some of them on your own, but deep down you know you need some external help and guidance to heal from them. You would like to reach some peace, let go of pain, learn how to accept and love yourself better, learn some real tools and skills to be more resilient, feel strong and confident, and be able to enjoy life.

Whether coming to gain life skills as an individual or a couple; Or coming to therapy to process life events as a family or an individual, the one thing on my part most necessary is to listen without judgment or a personal agenda.

Using a combination of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Somatic Experiencing, I will help you work through your past and heal from your trauma.
Your past is a heavy weight you carry around with you. You wish you could just erase it from memory. You've tried ignoring it and suppressing it, but it's always there. Plagued by anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, insomnia, difficulty trusting others, mood swings, irritability, and avoiding reminders of what happened. Imagine what life could be like, if you could break free from your past- letting go of that heavy weight. No longer being haunted by painful memories of things that happened way back when. Having a more positive outlook on your past and future, and feeling more at ease.
