Where "Compassionate Care Meets Clinically Effective Treatments."
Life is filled with so many challenges.
Sometimes the struggles feel like they are
more than we can handle, and we just need an
outside ear, an impartial listener. No
matter what the challenges, there is hope.
Depression, anxiety, combat related
leftovers, sexual or physical abuse,
marriage troubles, parenting, affairs, grief
and loss, infertility, stress. These and
many more struggles can be successfully
overcome. I specialize in two therapies
clinically proven to be effective in dealing
with two of life’s biggest challenges.
The first treatment helps with trauma, both big and
small. It is called Eye Movement
Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy or EMDR
short. EMDR Therapy helps the brain process these
events in a way that unlocks the
unproductive emotional content that invades
our present experience. Anything in life
that has high emotional content can keep us
stuck emotionally in the place and time of
the original incident. We get suck with the
same sights, sounds, smells, thinking, and
body sensations, still active and out of
place. It is as if a part of us gets stuck in
trauma time. EMDR Therapy helps our brain get all
of us in
the same time zone.
The second deals with relationship troubles,
ranging from communication issues to
infidelity (cheating) and is called
Emotionally Focused Therapy or EFT for
short. EFT has been proven to help couples
to significantly improve the quality of
their relationship and the results last long
term. It helps couples create a new kind of
relationship, a relationship where we feel
safe enough to ask for what we need from our
partner and your partner feels safe enough to
reach back and meet the need.
I have been trained and Certified by the
international organizations that oversee the
training and development of these two
treatments. You can read more about each of
these in more detail
