BRAINSPOTTING - is effective for a wide variety of emotional and somatic conditions. Brainspotting is particularly effective with trauma-based situations, helping to identify and heal underlying trauma that contributes to anxiety, depression and other behavioral conditions. Its goal is to bypass the conscious, neocortical thinking to access deeper, subcortical emotional and body-based parts of the brain. One of the reasons I believe so strongly in this modality is that it’s based on the belief that we intuitively know how to heal ourselves, and that in shifting deep seated trauma we release it and are empowered to heal our lives. 

PSYCHODRAMA -  is an experiential form of therapy that allows the client to safely re-experience past “dramas” through re-creation and role play. By then finding a new and different voice through expression and role rehearsal, clients are able to release wounds and communicate in a more authentic and empowered self.  (On-going training with Tian Dayton, PhD, TEP - 200 hours).

Individual Therapy

Psychotherapy is a healing art. A metamorphosis begins when we acknowledge our wounds and the places where we have stopped growing. Wounds often leave us cutoff and fragmented, lonely and uncertain. By connecting with those places inside, we open and create space for healing, growth and change, bringing wholeness to our fractured selves.

Our most authentic and vibrant selves are innately creative -- healing comes in a myriad of forms!  Trusting the process and walking into your new self is an exploration unlike any other and requires relationship.  In unearthing our true selves, we learn to live a contented, joyful life. We realize our full potential and become "self-actualized," and a truer, more complete version of ourselves.  This work is challenging and not meant to be done alone. Healing takes place within the nurturing connection of human relationship.

Couples Therapy

Does your relationship need work? Are you feeling stuck? Would you like to create greater intimacy and depth and find improved connection with your partner? 

Relationships are workshops. They can be wonderful, difficult and incredibly fulfilling. Relationships are where we receive our emotional nourishment.  When our relationships with ourselves and others are good, we feel supported, loved, and held. When they are not good, we feel hurt, neglected, alone, and invisible.  Our relationships can serve as a classroom for our soul, teaching us new ways to communicate and problem solve that opens up pathways for healing and change, facilitating growth and intimacy, fostering forgiveness and love.

Family Therapy

Family therapy assists family members in improving communication and resolving conflict. In family therapy, you will learn the relational skills necessary to navigate the sometimes choppy waters of family dynamics.  Family therapy is actually useful in a variety of settings and organizations, as it is systems based and focuses on interrelational patterns. Whatever your goal, whether it be to improve troubled relationships or to address specific issues (i.e.marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, substance abuse) families in therapy will learn new ways to interact and overcome unhealthy patterns for the benefit of the whole.
