What to Expect
My passion resides in offering trauma informed care through combining EMDR therapy and somatic experiencing ® interventions, with a goal of developing skill building intended to work toward developing an attunement to our bodies. This is accomplished by focusing on body sensations as well as emotions that arise. I will guide you through the use of grounding techniques, noticing our bodies, and other imagery tools. For your first appointment,I'll start by asking you what brings you to seeking the support of a therapist like myself. I will complete an evaluation inquiring about your history, starting from childhood, as well as in regard to stressors, symptoms impairing regular day functioning, and what goals you would like to meet in your life. Such information offers me a road map and pieces to a puzzle that help explain what is keeping you from meeting your life goals, to include self-defeating patterns and thought processes. Contact me if you would like to learn more and/or would like to be scheduled for a session. I would be more than happy to assist you and be a guide in your journey.
