While I am not certified in IFS, I have completed the Master Class in IFS and in have trained in Robin Shapiro's Ego State therapy.
EMDR is a research-based method of treatment that is used for a wide variety of concerns, including trauma, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Using EMDR, the therapist leads the client through a series of eye movements (or tapping) that allows gentle resolution of the root cause of the problem.
Trauma treatment is tailored to each person based on this or her unique perspective. Treatment may include: Individual therapy — to develop a renewed sense of safety, manage strong emotions, grieve their losses, and move forward following traumatic events and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing — an integrative psychotherapy approach that that uses directed eye movements to process traumatic events and develop new and positive thought patterns.
With proper treatment, people with eating disorders can recover. Treatment generally involves a combination of factors, including assessing the function that the eating disorder serves, learning healthy coping and self-soothing skills, breaking the unhealthy cycles of binging and restricting, and changing thoughts and patterns. I work with women and men of all ages. We can also work with body image.
I gently support clients at all stages of exploring and affirming gender identity in a no judgment zone. I have worked with members of the LGBTQ community since beginning my practice and continue to attend (and conduct) trainings and expand my knowledge. I am the author of "A Clinician's Guide to Gender Identity and Body Image." I also provide parent support and guidance in parenting LGBTQ teens.
