I provide EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy for:
- recovery from traumatic experience
- calming and stress reduction
- mood improvement
- eating disorder recovery
- better performance (academic, athletic, artistic, etc.)
I work with couples to promote understanding, empathy, and mutual support. I utilize EMDR and emotion-focused methods to help couples of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to resolve painful events that have hurt their relationship (include pic of lesbian couple).
I use a variety of evidence-based approaches to help adults recover from difficult experiences, feel calmer and more grounded, and build more creative lives.
Trauma takes many forms – “little t to Big T.” I use a combination of EMDR, clinical hypnosis, and supportive emotion-focused methods to help people recover from upsetting experiences (include link to prior blog material).
Stress/Anxiety Reduction Therapy:
I help people de-stress and learn new ways of keeping calm in the midst of pressure. EMDR, education, and body-awareness training promote life change through profound calming.
Mood Improvement Therapy:
No matter the source, depression keeps us from living fully. I treat depression with a mix of EMDR, education, relationship repair, and emotion-focused methods.
Eating Disorder Therapy:
Every eating disorder involves some type of prior traumatic experience, often a relationship trauma. And boys/men experience disordered eating almost as often as girls/women. I use EMDR to target the underlying trauma and help clients build new resources for change.
Drug Addiction Therapy:
I believe addiction is a form of post-traumatic stress. In combination with 12-step support, I work with people in drug and alcoholism recovery by helping them target early trauma and build more constructive coping strategies.
Individual Performance Therapy (Arts, Academic, and Athletic):
EMDR helps people perform better at whatever they do. I use EMDR and emotional support to help clients become better students, athletes, and performers (include link to previous blog material.).
Creative Development Therapy:
I use EMDR and emotional support to help people find and utilize their creativity. Trauma and stress block creative efforts; recovery and calming help to restore the natural ability to write, paint, dance, or play (include link to previous blog material.).
About EMDR Therapy:
EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to treating trauma and the many symptoms that go with it. EMDR engages the entire nervous system to process information rapidly and promote calm. It also helps us learn new, more constructive beliefs about ourselves.
