My Background and Approach
I have a passion to work with people who have experienced trauma. I believe it is essential that trauma work begins by strengthening and stabilizing the present. Once this has been established the deeper work of the trauma work can take place. The work of trauma can be done without having to relive the events; this prevents re-traumatization. I expand the traditional therapy approach of discussing thoughts and feelings to include working with the body. This is done by paying attention to motion, the 5 senses (sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch) and internal sensations, such as rapid heart rate and the stomach tightening. Approaches: Adaptive Internal Relational (AIR) Network Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Basic Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SPI) Level 1 and Level 2 Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART)
