A Deviation from Talk Therapy
Cognitive Processing and Neurological Rewiring
I enjoy deviating from the typical “talk therapy” experience. Clients report and research supports significantly more profound, long-lasting positive outcomes from these dynamic approaches that incorporate the kinesthetic and the cognitive, from body systems to family systems. Techniques include practical psychoeducation, relational contact, and experiential trauma processing.
Psychosomatic Trauma Reprocessing
I’ve received training in several trauma techniques that help bridge the gaps between the body and brain, and have incorporated my own energetic twists into my work using my extensive background in alternative-healing techniques. Contrary to popular-belief in previous generations of therapists, exposure therapy alone or just talking about past events is often not correlated with positive long-term outcomes, which, let’s remember, is why you’re seeking therapy!
As such, I find it crucial to incorporate trauma protocols and best-practices in a variety of ways in order to suit the needs of each person I work with. These include research-backed methods including Brainspotting (originating from EMDR), Hypnotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Gestalt Therapy. We reprogram the brain, body, and energetic fields and work through the integration process in order to minimize negative symptoms, resulting in greater calm and confidence.
Bottom line, “This shit works.” You want to experience dramatic shifts and see positive results and so do I.
It’s incredible how much freedom and confidence we create when we feel safe and we’re willing to dive deep.
…I love this work.
I offer practical skills around emotional regulation, communication, interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, conflict management, and distress tolerance. Many of these methods are founded in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), one of the most effective treatments for mood disorders and unhealthy behavioral patterning such as self-harm, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Everyone can benefit from these invaluable skills.
Couples and Relational Therapy
I utilize Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Authentic Relating practices. I have also trained in the Gottman Method and research-based relational approaches. These practices help individuals manage relational conflict, communicate more effectively, and build fulfilling connections that last. This also takes intimacy and sex to the next level, emotionally and physically.
Psychodrama, Gestalt Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) help families heal and connect. Family therapy can have a dramatic effect to repair behavioral and communication issues.
Make a plan.
Once stress becomes chronic, we forget, or don’t even recognize that there are solutions—like having a toothache and never going to the dentist. By taking action we set ourselves free…
It’s never too late to take action.
Many of us didn’t learn about managing emotions or establishing positive interpersonal relationships growing up. We work together to retrain our brain, body, and nervous system to live with greater control over our emotions and satisfaction in our hearts.
