I had completed thousands of hours of supervised training and had seen hundreds of clients (yes, hundreds!). I like to utilize approaches and techniques that are based on research studies and show results. My additional clinical training consists of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), couple’s therapy, and brainspotting.
Work with Me
If you are ready to do hard work, I’m up to the task. I will tailor my interventions depending on the problem presented, how ready you are to work on issues, and of course…my map to do therapy. I like to use techniques from many different models of treatment depending on the challenges of the problem. However, I find myself relying mostly on the following:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
- Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)
I will pay attention to your past but will concentrate a lot on the here and now experience. While I will be asking questions about your family of origin, I will also be paying attention to the times in which you manage things amazingly well. I will also ask you to involve your whole self in the session, not just your mind. The body speaks in ways the mind can’t comprehend unless we really know how to develop awareness. Expect to be asked to complete assignments or like I prefer to call them “experiments” in-between sessions.
