My approach to healing begins with the nervous system and giving the client the knowledge of what is happening internally. The body has an emotional and physical nervous system and the brain cannot distinguish which is affected. Through certain neuroexperiential modalities such as Brainspotting and EMDR, we can access parts of the brain that traditional talk therapy cannot reach and allow the brain/body to heal as it was designed.
(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Includes bi-lateral eye movement, auditory, or tactile stimulation to process trauma or disturbance in the body. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. Read more about EMDR Therapy here.
Brainspotting(Watch Video Here) is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. It accesses trauma trapped in the subcortical brain, the area of the brain responsible for motion, consciousness, emotions, and learning. It supports the understanding that, "Where you look affects how you feel". During a Brainspotting session, you can say as much or little as you feel comfortable! Read more about Brainspotting.
Heart Rate Variability training that focuses on syncing the heart, brain, and body to help manage stress.

Sand Tray Therapy
Sand tray therapy uses sand, water, and a variety of miniatures to create stories that represent a person’s inner world. These help the person become aware of unknown past or current challenges in life. Sand tray therapy offers one such protected space. It can complement talk therapy and engage the mind-body connection to help a person face distress and trauma in a nonverbal manner.
