Issues: Whatever keeps you from the life you want, our work is tailored to your goals. In a calm environment, you can explore whatever challenges you.
My therapeutic speciality is trauma, most specifically treated with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I have over 20 years experience with advanced training. Most of my therapeutic work is with EMDR because it is effective, heavily research-based, and generally quick. Clients report that they feel better able to respond appropriately to the every-day stressers of life, without either over-reacting or under-reacting. EMDR gets to the root of many challenges such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, and many more, resolving them so new, effective patterns of behavior are more easily mastered.
I also work with anxiety and depression, grief and loss, aging, teen stresses, parenting, self esteem, health concerns, LGBTQ+ challenges, relationship dynamics, emotional dysregulation, and general stress and worry.
Approaches: My area of particular expertise is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). In addition, I often draw on mindfulness based cognitive therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as supportive tools like relaxation, meditation, HAES informed strategies, movement, etc.
