Therapy can provide the path to discovering one's true self, developing self-acceptance and finding inner peace in this challenging world.
The genuine relationship that develops between the client and an attuning, compassionate and insightful therapist is the foundation of a successful psychotherapy.
My style is warm, nonjudgemental, informal and interactive. I like helping people to feel freer, happier and more truly themselves. I am very attuned to my clients' needs. It is important to me that they feel better about themselves and their lives.
I work in the following ways to help people heal from relational wounding/ trauma and shame, and learn to connect with themselves and others in new ways:
ATTACHMENT THEORY explores the importance of a child's early experience with caregivers in terms of forming later patterns of relating that include one's sense of self. Childhood experiences influence how our brains become wired.
NEUROPSYCHOLOGY education and
mindfulness exercises can rewire the brain to achieve the ability to have both the thinking and feeling parts of the brain working at the same time. This type of integration is the key to resilience, emotional balance, aliveness, opening the heart, connecting and having compassion for self and others.
FOCUS on the awareness of experience
in the present moment/somatic experience:
One learns to listen to the body's communication and self awareness increases.
EMDR/ EFT/Brainspotting/DNMS treatments to alleviate distress from traumatic memories and other adverse life experiences.
