I am pleased to be able to offer expertise and experience in many therapeutic strategies that can be chosen according to each person’s unique pathway to change. Some of these are:
ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) is a therapy that allows clients to find, not only relief from a stressful memory, but ability to move on in positive ways, often in 1 to 3 sessions. Depression, PTSD, anxiety, addictions and more have decreased and resolved. The approach uses eye movements and follows certain steps including communication, if one chooses, with the therapist. I had a client say “you are so lucky to be able to do this for people” and I agree! It is wonderful to see people so relieved to have moved on without the pain of the past.
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Reprocessing) helps to unblock the memories of situations, internal associations are made which lead to reprocessing. New positive beliefs and feelings of empowerment emerge. It has been found to be helpful with memories of traumatic experiences and PTSD, anxiety including panic attacks, depression, unrealistic feelings of shame and guilt, relationship difficulties, loss and grief.
DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) DBT is a well-established program that includes a group of learning components. Parts of this model have now been used with other client populations, particularly those with depression and anxiety. I use this model and the skills training in individual therapy. The learning skills include: Mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness skills, emotion regulation training, and distress tolerance.
Stress Management skills such as relaxation skills, mindfulness, meditation
Body, mind, emotions interrelatedness
Family Systems Theory approach
Couple therapy techniques
