I am trained to use the EMDR model to help people move through trauma and feelings of being stuck. EMDR is an evidence-based practice and one of the most heavily researched therapy models available. Trauma is often stored in the physical body and EMDR can help reprocess traumatic memories so that a person is desensitized to those triggers.
Mindfulness is the practice of becoming aware of our thoughts and feelings in the present moment. Mindfulness therapy focuses on developing the skill of not attaching ourselves to our thoughts and emotions. Mindfulness is also a component of DBT or Dialectical Behavior Therapy which focuses on emotional regulation and frustration tolerance. I am trained in using DBT techniques.
Working in home-based mental health for over 10 years has provided me the training and experience to help families resolve conflict. I believe the stories that families and individuals carry with them serve as a blueprint for decision making and patterns throughout life. Changing these patterns is an important part in reaching family and individual goals.
Family conflict arises when families get stuck in their communication and interactions. My experience working in home-based mental health provides me with the training to help families shift their maladaptive patterns and meet their individual and family goals.
Marital issues often arise when couples have to deal with a crisis or a loss of intimacy. Couples therapy can be a supportive place to address power issues, improve direct communication, and re-establish intimacy.
PTSD is classified as an anxiety disorder that develops after experiencing a psychologically traumatic event or events. Trauma can affect everyone in different ways. I am trained in the use of the EMDR technique which can be an effective tool to get to the root of these traumas. Mindfulness based therapy can also be helpful in treating trauma.
Anxiety can be a normal coping mechanism to help people deal with a variety of stressors. However, if anxiety becomes excessive and/or interferes with your daily functioning, you may need to see a therapist. Therapy can provide you the tools and insights to deal with anxiety. EMDR, mindfulness- based therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy are all useful practices that I use to treat anxiety.
Feeling sad or “down in the dumps” is a normal feeling that everyone experiences sometimes. Depression is a myriad of feelings that get in the way of your daily functioning. Depression can manifest quite differently in men, women, teenagers, and children. Therapy can be helpful in terms of looking at patterns of behavior and thought in order to move through the depression.
