EMDR is my favorite treatment modality to use with clients because of how effective it is, and how long-lasting the effects are. EMDR is a type of therapy that helps your brain process memories and experiences in a new way so that they no longer feel triggering or distressing. My clients who have done EMDR have described it as empowering and liberating.
I often pull from CBT when doing talk therapy with clients. Our beliefs often keep us stuck and engaging in the same old behavior patterns. Identifying and challenging our beliefs can be a way of helping us create changes in our behavior, which can lead to better mood and happier relationships.
ACT has some awesome tools for helping to turn down the volume of unhelpful thoughts and feelings. ACT also utilizes metaphors to help us understand and make sense of our experiences.
As a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist with almost a decade of experience in the field, you might say that eating disorders are my bread and butter (no pun intended!). I can help with every part of the eating disorder spectrum - anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, ARFID, and everything in between. If you're a chronic dieter who hates their body, I can help with that. Additionally, I really enjoy working with athletes and fitness competitors who struggle with food/body image.
I am able to help those with PTSD resolve their traumatic memories so that they can find peace and healing. There are lots of people who have experienced trauma who may not fit all of the diagnostic criteria for PTDS, but who are still equally worthy of help and relief. If you find yourself re-living events of the past, please consider reaching out for help.
