I have completed the Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapy Training. I have worked with couples that are: opposite sex, same-sex, dating, cohabitating, engaged, married, separating, divorcing, and co-parenting. I have worked with couples from young to old and from all different cultural, familial, and religious backgrounds.
Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) is a highly efficient and effective way of working with clients that can lead to deeper more meaningful therapeutic work in less time with lasting results. IBP treats the whole person, integrating the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. I have completed 6 years of training in IBP and am a Certified Integrative Body Psychotherapist and Teacher. I am also currently undergoing the training to become a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider.
Many people today live in constant states of stress, fight, flight, or freeze. These dysfunctional body-mind states not only limit functions such as the immune system, sexuality, digestion, and elimination, they also block the ability to think and feel beyond survival and crisis-level problems. The approaches that I have expertise in and have found to be most successful with treating anxiety disorders integrate somatic practices, cognitive/behavioral interventions and holistic practices.
I have completed the Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapy Training and can help couples with learning ways to communicate and manage conflicts, build emotional and physical intimacy, connection, and fun, create shared meaning by living into each other life’s goals and dreams and building trust by healing past wounds and rebuilding a strong relationship foundation.
