Why can we say the body heals but when it comes to the mind, we stray away from this language? Experiencing feelings related to trauma, depression, anxiety etc. does not mean you are forever damaged or broken; it means you are human. I have extensive training in EMDR, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Interpersonal Neurobiology which support the brain’s natural ability to heal and re-wire itself back to a place of homeostasis.
My therapeutic style is focused, direct and empathetic. Therapy is a healing process and I work closely with clients to get them where they want to ‘go’ as soon as we can. I have specialized training with first responders, persons with chronic pain, trauma, grief and end of life issues.
My goal is to help each person gain emotional wholeness, clarity and focus in their lives; life is more than just surviving another day. When we approach therapy from a holistic viewpoint (mind, body, self) it allows these components the ability to integrate, differentiate and thus heal.
