My Approach to Helping
I specialize in trauma, addictions and related issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, and dependency, Often childhood trauma shows up in symptoms of irritable, life dissatisfaction, feelings of overwhelm or fear, numbness or depression or loneliness and alienation from others. Addictions or compulsive behaviors are often symptoms of self-soothing and may be related to deeper emotional needs. As a somatic therapist, I work with the whole person, mind, body, and emotions. I am trained in EMDR, TRM, Affect Regulation Therapy, and psychodynamic approaches to work with you in exploring emotions, patterns, beliefs and behaviors that are keeping you from being the you that you want to be.
