EMDR helps to uncover and unlock trauma that gets stuck in the body. Through bilateral stimulation that can be visual, auditory or kinisthetic, we help clients process trauma that has been locked away and therefore hidden and unavailable for processing up until this moment. By unlocking the trauma and helping the client process the it in a safe environment, the trauma gets neutralized and the person becomes free of the pain that they have been suffering from due to the trauma.
I have a post-graduate degree in Gestalt Therapy. In Gestalt Therapy, we try to focus on the here and now. We may go back to difficult childhood experiences if they are affecting and impinging on your present life. Gestalt teaches body awareness and is experiential in nature. We try to help clients experience what they are saying rather than just tell a story. Where do you feel that emotion in your body and what color is it? What shape does it have? If it had a voice, what would it say?
My career began in the field of addictions. I understand that addiction is often the symptom of a deeper issue. Sobriety isn't just abstinence from a substance - it is a life change and a mindset that incorporates learning better tools for coping with stress and traumatic life experiences. I am here to help you learn new skills for daily living that incorporate self-care, boundary setting, healthy relationships, and self-acceptance.
