Please see below to find out more detailed information regarding specific specialties and certifications.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is an evidenced based somatic treatment modality proven highly effective for individuals who have experienced trauma. Clinicians also have found success in using EMDR for anxiety, stress, complicated grief, addictions and panic disorders. EMDR combines somatic and cognitive based therapies to heal from the past, focus on the present moment and prepare for the future.
I utilize my training as a yoga teacher and mental health clinician to provide individuals with an integrative approach to healing the mind and body. I strongly believe that there is a correlation between our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and how we feel physically. I use my strengths as a yoga teacher and body worker to provide individuals with space to heal holistically incorporating mindfulness, traditional talk therapy and awareness of body sensations.
Trauma Touch Therapy™
Trauma Touch Therapy is a somatic approach to healing oneself. This dynamic approach utilizes breathing, movement, and touch as a way for individuals to slow down, become aware, and reclaim a healthy sense of self. Trauma Touch Therapy provides a nurturing environment for gradual exploration of the sensations experienced in the body, and tools to integrate into daily life. Each experience is unique and rich; a time to laugh, to mourn, and a time to be wholly present.
