My work is client-centered and interactive. This is your time and we will work in those areas that are most immediate and important to you. I will provide feedback and support by offering alternative ideas and approaches to address your life issues. Past successes and personal strengths will be strengthened to create a strong internal foundation. If there are childhood traumatic issues, such as neglect or abuse, this foundation will allow the processing and release of the traumas. My treatment approach is holistic. I utilize a variety of techniques such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems, cognitive-behavioral, family-of-origin, Lifespan Integration, experiential and spiritual work. I also use body/mind/spirit awareness, family-of-origin. Use of Gentle Bi-lateral Brain stimulation to help create new neural pathways by installing healthy, loving images and body feeling to relieve old trauma. Difficulty can be caused by many reasons; such as challenges with relationships, past or present traumas, chronic diseases/pain, loss of a relationship, a loved one, your career or a change in your overall health.

Everyone experiences stress in their own way. Some become depressed, withdrawn, have nightmares, are anxious and overwhelmed most of the time, while others become angry or isolate themselves. Studies show that people can become physically ill; if the emotional trauma lasts too long in the body. I like to work from an educational point of view. I believe that educating the client with expertise from my experience with hundreds of clients and validated scienctific research is beneficial in understanding the total perspective for change. We will work with your strengths, while also creating new and healthier patterns of functioning.
