I'm a psychologist specializing in the treatment of trauma and difficulties with managing emotions and relationships.
Psychologist in Campbell, CA
I have experience leading DBT groups and can support clients with learning and integrating DBT skills into their lives. DBT is an evidenced-based therapy that teaches people practical ways to understand and manage difficult emotions, cope with stress, and improve relationships with others.
I am a certified Level I Sensorimotor Psychotherapy practitioner. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy helps individuals work through trauma at the level of the body and nervous system where trauma responses are rooted.
Attachment describes the ability to form close and trusting emotional bonds with others, especially partners and family members. Difficult experiences in childhood can lead to difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships due to feelings of insecurity, anxiety, or the desire to pull away. I have experience in helping individuals understand their attachment style and in working through this issue using practical tools and mindfulness based approaches.
I have several years experience working with highly sensitive persons. I provide a body-based approach that helps clients to understand and care for their sensitivity at the level of the nervous system. This brings greater confidence and ability to manage the overwhelm that often comes with sensitivity. I also help highly sensitive clients connect with their unique gifts and support them in bringing those gifts into their relationships and work.
I specialize in the treatment of PTSD and have certification in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (a body based approach) for helping clients work through both acute and early childhood experiences of trauma.
