I believe our emotional gut guides our perception and behaviors, a belief largely underpinned by extensive Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) training. I’ll help you access those underlying emotions and gain a deeper, more tangible understanding of what drives you. As you get more in tune with your emotional experiences, I’ll help you spot and deconstruct unhealthy patterns of dealing with them (i.e. withdrawal, escapism, eruptions, etc) and develop new, more satisfying ways of approaching life, love, and livelihood.
I'm also trained in EMDR, a unique form of therapy designed to help us heal from distressing and sometimes traumatic life experiences. Our brains have a natural ability to recover from distress. But sometimes, this recovery process is short-circuited when an experience is so upsetting that it is frozen in your body’s nervous system in its original form with all the sights, sounds, smells, sensations, emotions, and beliefs that were present at the time of the incident.
