I work with survivors of a broad spectrum of traumatic experiences, who are ready to do the work that leads to success. For treatment of trauma-related disorders to be effective, the process must be collaborative between therapist and client and both must be invested in your success. To our mutual delight, healing work with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Brainspotting has helped my clients transform their lives as they heal and live in the present.
It is important for victims of trauma to understand Emotional Personas (EP) and the role they play in trauma symptoms & treatment. My work involves education around EPs, to reinforce that the individual is not defined by trauma & its symptoms—rather the EPs require identification and processing in order to integrate and bring healing to the whole person.
Many of my clients have tried many therapies in the past with little to no success, sometimes including many years of talk therapy. Some haven’t felt comfortable enough to share their deeper traumas with their therapist, citing trust issues or fearing that their therapist couldn’t handle what they had to tell them. Frustrated and tired of endless talk sessions and debilitating symptoms, they were ready to go further in their treatment and do the work. That is where I help.
