I have extensive training in helping people work through the pain of trauma. I am trained and was certified in EMDR, a technique used to help people work through traumatic memories in a way that can be inaccessible through talk therapy alone. I have also studied Somatic Experiencing, another trauma modality that helps people listen to the wisdom of their bodies to heal from traumatic memories; I incorporate elements of EMDR and Somatic Experiencing in all trauma work.
Men are acculturated to solve problems, not to find out how we’re feeling. We’re taught that “men take charge," but we can struggle with taking responsibility. And while we are coached to “suck it up” when we fall, we're seldom taught to reach out for help when we really need it. My men's groups offer an alternative path, a path of interdependence in community. We offer a space you can count on week after week, as you practice new ways of being with fellow group members.
I have extensive experience and advanced training in helping people understand, confront, and overcome social anxiety, panic attacks, and death anxiety.
