It can be hard to not get stuck in the "should" of everything. My goal is to hold an accepting space for my clients to heal.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arizona
I enjoy working with autistic folks and neurodivergent folks. I use a neurodiverse affirming model to help you identify your needs, and lean into the traits that make you who you are.
Attachment is one of those pieces that we can carry for a long time, and struggle to understand. I use EMDR, IFS, and brainspotting to help you lean in and gain an in-depth understanding of yourself so that you can learn how you adapt and function. In this process, you also learn to see yourself as human and love the human that is inside.
I work with people who are chronically ill or have pain and disability. I work from a grief model to help you grieve the "should be" in your life. I can understand that it is incredibly lonely and sad to have to grieve yourself. I am chronically ill myself and understand the ups and down's that you experience. I use EMDR to process the trauma of being chronically ill and navigate the medical and mental health system that is not set up to support success.
I use brainspotting to help you process past traumatic experiences. I have found that by doing this you will become more effective at advocating for yourself, as well as identifying the messages that your brain and body send to you to help you function throughout your day.
I have extensive training in EMDR, and I find it very helpful in processing trauma and healing so that you can be present in your life. I have found that EMDR is helpful in helping you cultivate relationships with intention, set purposeful boundaries, and advocate for yourself, as well as attune to yourself.
