The word ‘trauma’ can sound scary and feel intense and overwhelming. I specialize in working with complex trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, as well as eating disorders. I am extensively trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I am particularly passionate about doing EMDR with my clients, as it is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. It’s a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress (EMDRIA website, 2020).
I truly believe that trauma is stored deeply in our bodies and healing starts with self-awareness, which is why I am very passionate about incorporating various non-traditional approaches to trauma therapy, such as body work, trauma-informed yoga, expressive arts, guided imagery, and more! I believe that no two people will have identical psychological experiences and, therefore, will require individually tailored psychotherapy and I am excited to discover the right approach for you! It takes tremendous courage to embark on the journey of personal growth and I consider it an honor to be part of this experience!
