Specialize in Trauma and Addictions
EMDR is an evidenced based therapy that is safe & effective
Private and personalized client centered therapy. The highest outcome from therapy are long-term lasting intimate relationships. Sometimes we can become overwhelmed by our life situations and are unable to successfully integrate our experiences. Instead we are taken hostage by our symptoms and without professional help the best we able to do is experience temporary relief. Quality therapy produces trait change which is permanent. Sessions are paced and have a progressive informed consent approach that keeps you in the "window of tolerance" and self-regulation techniques are taught and practiced to ensure your ability to ground yourself. Mindfulness techniques help you to stay present and breath techniques help you experience mind-body relief.
Bio
I have been working in the addiction field for 30+ years. Trauma work has emerged as a result of finding deeper issues that perpetuate the addiction and /or substitute behaviors. OCD, ED, Gambling, Drugs, Alcohol, Sex, Shopping etc. are all substitute behaviors with a positive feeling state connected to each compulsive behavior.
Hope is a process. If you are in a church, a 12-step fellowship or no other support I try and work within and not against whatever supports you bring. Medicated assisted recovery for some is effective and can keep you stabile until you find symptom relief, stability and freedom. I also treat Dissociative Disorders very safely with evidenced base therapy.
