I provide a safe environment where we can work together in "the here and now"; collaborating on issues that arise in the present moment. My approach combines a relational style with Somatic psychotherapy. Somatic Psychotherapy is different from traditional therapy in that we take time to explore what's happening internally (with your nervous system) so you can learn how to stay calm and ?regulated.? I base my approach on each client's individual needs, checking in regularly.
I am trained in EMDR and Brainspotting. I'm also certified in a Somatic approach to psychotherapy called NARM which emphasizes working with one's strengths and resources as well as with current symptoms. NARM combines a focus on the body and the nervous system with a curiosity about the client's thoughts and emotions. Clients learn somatic mindfulness, which heightens their awareness of emotional and physiological patterns that began in the past and occur in the present.
In NARM the focus is less on why a person is the way they are and more on how their survival style shows up in the present moment. NARM orients the client toward resources-- both internal and external-- in order to help develop an increased capacity for self-regulation and healthier attachments. For more information about NARM refer to the work of Dr. Laurence Heller, a Somatic Experiencing (which focuses on shock trauma) instructor who developed NARM to focus on healing developmental trauma.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I enjoy working with people who are "addicted to being busy"; sometimes spending too much time on Facebook or the internet, overworking, or being constantly busy at home. Having spent many years in the corporate world, I like helping people who are trying to find balance at work or considering a new career path. I help my clients create space and time for recreation which increases clarity and reduces stress.
