My Approach to Helping
The consequences of unresolved trauma or difficult life events can be devastating. It is linked to anxiety, depression, and anger. Trauma takes a toll in our interpersonal relationships, making you feel disconnected and at times can lead to destructive behavior. Trauma symptoms are triggered by stress or felt as cycles of anxiety and depression that can have serious impacts in one’s life.
Trauma, however, can be resolved. It takes a specially trained therapist to help address it. You may have tried therapy in the past with limited results or continue to feel “stuck”. Trauma is not only a problem of cognition, which is why conventional therapy has its limitations. I am trained in Somatic Experiencing®, a therapy that takes year to be trained on and that specifically targets trauma. Somatic Experiencing®, effectively treats emotional wounds, depression, and anxiety. I also integrates different modalities of treatment into his practice, such as EMDR, CBT, and psychodynamic approaches.
I know how devastating trauma can be and that it might be intimidating to seek treatment, since it could be retraumatizing. However, this is not the case with the therapy I offer. We would be targeting symptoms without impacting your activities of daily living. Please note that I also provide therapy that is not trauma oriented.
