Welcome! It would be my pleasure to help you feel like your best self through holistic and brain-based therapies, virtually, in CT or MA!
Counselor in Branford, CT
Trauma informed, compassionate approach utilizing EMDR, TF-CBT, Mindfulness & other techniques alike.
Mindfulness, Holistic Approach in combination with CBT & other therapeutic approaches tailored to each individual client
ACT, CBT, EMDR, family dynamics & interpersonal technique approaches used to help clients be their best selves!
I have extensive knowledge and use of CBT therapy. I naturally gravitated toward this theory of treatment early on in my clinical school and fieldwork. I have been trained in CBT, TF-CBT for children & the transitioning years (18-25yo) through a research study at UMASS , and in Mindfulness based CBT treatment. I would love to help you understand and make connections between current behaviors, feelings and thoughts, in order to assist you in making change that can last a lifetime.
EMDR is a brain based therapy that works! Research has shown countless clients who have been diagnosed with PTSD initially, no longer meet the requirements for PTSD after EMDR treatment. I am basic and advanced trained in EMDR, working with consultants/supervisors currently toward achieving further trainings in somatic work, parts work, and more. I am almost complete with consultation hours, and will be applying for EMDR certification shortly! I LOVE using EMDR with my clients!
With a background in exercise physiology, years of learning about and trying out holistic therapies/alternatives and meditations, and with additional trainings in Mindfulness clinically, I have been able to add a whole body experience for my clients in therapy. Therapy isn't just about working with the brain, but also the body and spiritual connection we have (whatever that means for you) in our lives. I would love to help you combine those aspects in helping to heal the mind/body/soul!
