I provide individual and couple therapy, working with trauma, anxiety, depression, and I help people deal with the emotional consequences of serious illness and pain. I use many types of therapies including biofeedback, narrative therapy, guided imagery, and short term solution focused therapy. For deeper work I offer EMDR, hypnosis, and Brainspotting. These tools directly address the unconscious and that's the place where changes are rapid and quite permanent. Brainspotting is often my tool of choice because it's both gentle and deep. See David Grand's site for more information about Brainspotting.

I also help clients discover what they have inherited genetically from their ancestors. Big traumas such as war experiences, family members who were killed after being accused witches, murder, the Irish potato famine, curses, and other events trigger lasting changes in the family's genes. These changes show up as familial abuse of drugs and alcohol, high rates of suicide (especially among women), obsessive fear of death, low self esteem, and so on. These are multigenerational features that make little or no sense currently. Once we've unearthed the source event(s) the genes often correct themselves so the problem is no longer passed to future generations. And surprisingly, the entire current family system (cousins and so on) is often released from the issue. I call this Ancestral Communication.

What Makes up a Problem?

Our emotional selves have huge influence on our physical health. If we're anxious, depressed or caught in dark cloud of trauma it feels like we're always in survival mode. In fact we create physical pain and illness in order to distract us from difficult emotions. (Emotions are often scarier than pain or illness because we expect illnesses to resolve. We have no way of knowing if difficult emotions will change.) When we are present with our feelings the stories or events that underlie them bubble up and the feelings release. It's the stepping forward and being present that's the key to health. We have many new tools to help us do that successfully.
