Licensed Professional Counselor in Dallas, TX
I am a big believer in attachment theory and how it plays out in our relationships, in particular, romantic relationships. Using attachment theory and emotionally focused therapy, I am able to cut to the heart of the dynamics at play and see through the white noise so that each partner feels seen and heard and not bogged down in the details that don't matter. Couples therapy isn't what it used to be. Let me show you how.
Using EFT, it is possible to understand what is happening when you and your partner are plagued by the same unproductive, dysfunctional patterns over and over again. Let me show you how to understand what is really happening and how you can solve it once and for all.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is an evidence-based therapy that was originally created for trauma. However, it is now used to unravel negative memories and to rewire neural pathways in the brain for a variety of issues. EMDR works by extricating those distressing memories so that while the memory still remains, it no longer triggers the same physiological responses in the body (anxiety, anger, panic, fear). You don't have to live with fear, anxiety or confusion anymore.
I work with couples and individuals on relationship issues. I work with issues including codependency, trauma bonding, attachment /abandonment issues, forgiveness, abusive situations, affair recovery, healing after a breakup or those trying to determine whether they should stay in a relationship. I also work with clients who are desiring more intimacy in their relationships. If your relationship feels empty, tense, or unfulfilling, give me a call.
I use a holistic approach which emphasizes the mind-body connection harnessing the power of the body to soothe the mind and the power of the mind to soothe the body.I employ mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and other modalities in order to tailor therapy to your individual needs. Our session is your chance to download, unplug and recharge while being armed with insight, education,tools and support.
PTSD is no joke. The after effects of trauma can have a far reaching impact and no matter how strong you are, the way that trauma rewires your brain and nervous system isn't for wimps. Intrusive thoughts, emotional flashbacks, or painful triggers have a way of keeping a stranglehold on your present. Trauma imprints on our minds and bodies until we release that pent-up energy. Learn how to change your reactions when triggered so that you can finally have peace again.
