About My Clients

Being the victim of childhood trauma or narcissistic abuse can contribute to a wide range of physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms. It can make it difficult for you to trust others and maintain healthy relationships. Trauma and abuse of this nature becomes stored in the body, and may result in you feeling triggered, and suffering from mood swings, depression, and perhaps even feelings of guilt or shame. I specialize in EMDR therapy to help you heal from trauma and narcissistic abuse.

My Background and Approach

One of the primary therapeutic modalities I employ is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a powerful technique that utilizes bilateral stimulation, such as side-to-side eye movements or tapping, to transform the way traumatic memories are stored in the brain. This works to alleviate the emotional distress associated with trauma and allow you to heal from these experiences. In addition to EMDR, I integrate somatic or mind-body approaches into my practice. Somatic therapy recognizes that our life experiences are not only stored in our minds but also in our bodies. By focusing on both the physical sensations within the body and engaging in meaningful discussions, we create a comprehensive therapeutic environment. I incorporate various somatic techniques, including grounding exercises, breathwork, and increased body awareness to help individuals reconnect with their bodies, heal unresolved trauma, and enhance their overall well-being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the transformative power of therapy and the potential for profound personal growth. My training as a neuropsychologist provides me with the tools to help you rewire your brain and create a life of joy and meaning. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your inner world, heal from past wounds, and develop the tools and insights you need to live a more fulfilling life. Whether you are struggling with trauma, stress, or seeking personal development, I am here to support you on your journey towards positive change and greater well-being.
