My specialty and passion is helping women with their mental health and wellness.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Eatontown, NJ
EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.
Teaching awareness of how trauma impacts the survivor, recognizing and coping ahead for triggers, teaching emotion regulation skills, boundaries and limits and utilizing EMDR to dissolve the hold the trauma has over you.
Teaching you skills to help you regulate and reduce vulnerability to intense emotion. How to balance interpersonal relationships with appropriate boundaries or getting what you need more effectively. Lastly, bringing in mindfulness and acceptance skills to help you stay in the moment.
After working for several years for an agency specializing women's trauma, I opened up my own private practice. I am highly trained in specific trauma modalities like EMDR as well as an advanced training for perinatal specific EMDR, brainspotting as well as utilizing DBT skills for stability.
I am highly trained and have years of experience treating all issues impacting women. Self compassion, trauma focused, life transitions and maternal mental health and anxiety and depression.
