I have extensive experience helping people move beyond: depression/low self esteem, anxiety/panic attacks, couple and interpersonal issues, and emotional trauma/PTSD. I am particularly well known for the latter, having studied and taught mind-body integration in psychotherapy for more than 20 years. I also have a strong background in mindfulness meditation, which I incorporate into the therapeutic process to help you become more self aware and more able to effectively manage stress.
I have a broad range of training in relational/psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mind-body approaches to therapy (EMDR, AEDP, psychomotor and hypnosis) that I draw upon as needed to support you in your healing process. I believe in tailoring the treatment to fit your individual needs, and integrate talk therapy with mind-body integration work (psychomotor therapy) to help you connect with your deepest feelings as well as develop awareness of what is needed to move forward in your life.
Additional Certification or Specialized Training
I have advanced training in: psychodynamic/relational therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction, EMDR, cognitive-behavioral therapy, hypnosis, accelerated dynamic experiential therapy (AEDP), and psychomotor therapy (PBSP). In addition to being certified as a PBSP therapist, I have completed training as a supervisor and trainer of this work.
