As an Internal Family Systems informed (IFS) therapist, my expertise lies in helping individuals find profound relief from anxiety by facilitating the understanding and integration of their inner world. Anxiety is a multifaceted experience, often driven by the complex interplay of different "parts" within us. I've dedicated my practice to guiding clients through the intricate terrain of their inner selves, fostering inner harmony and resilience.
As an experienced somatic therapist and Internal Family Systems informed (IFS) practitioner, my expertise extends to a holistic approach for treating depression. I understand that emotional struggles often manifest in the body. Through somatic therapy, we explore the profound connection between physical sensations, emotions, and mental well-being. Combining this somatic awareness with IFS, we delve into the inner dynamics of your psyche.
Codependency often involves an excessive focus on others, leading to a loss of one's sense of self. My expertise lies in guiding clients to cultivate healthy autonomy while maintaining meaningful connections. Through therapy, we explore the roots of codependency, increase self-awareness, and develop healthier boundaries. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to examine their relationships and rediscover their authentic selves.
Attachment theory explores the emotional bonds we form in early life, shaping how we relate to others. Your unique attachment style, whether secure, anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, reflects early caregiving experiences. Understanding this style can illuminate relationship patterns, including closeness, trust, and vulnerability. In therapy, we'll delve into your attachment style to empower you. By addressing these roots, we can enhance your emotional well-being and improve relationships.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy explores the complexity of our inner world. It views the mind as a system composed of different "parts," each with unique qualities and roles. In IFS, we'll identify and understand these parts, often including protectors and wounded parts. The goal is to heal and harmonize these inner dynamics. By fostering self-compassion and self-leadership, you'll learn to navigate life's challenges more effectively and reconnect with your Self.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a proven therapy for trauma and emotional distress. By guiding eye movements during sessions, EMDR helps individuals process and reframe distressing memories, reducing their emotional charge. This therapy is particularly effective for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and various emotional challenges. EMDR offers a pathway to healing, allowing individuals to regain control over their emotional well-being.
