Feminist therapy is an integrative approach to psychotherapy that focuses on the challenges that women face as a result of bias, stereotyping, oppression, discrimination, and other factors, and how those stressors can negatively affect their mental health.
Mindfulness-based therapy combines cognitive behavioral techniques with mindfulness strategies in order to help individuals better understand and manage their thoughts and emotions in order to achieve relief from feelings of distress.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a comprehensive psychotherapy that helps you process and recover from past experiences that are affecting your mental health and wellbeing. It involves using side to side eye movements combined with talk therapy in a specific and structured format. I have been trained and a patient of EMDR and am astounded at its' effectiveness.
Life transitions create additional stress that can often bring a person into therapy. I see that as a gift. Transitions can exacerbate underlying issues so that you can finally address them.
How you feel about yourself and your worthiness of happiness underlies every decision that you make. If you don't believe that you deserve good things you will consciously or most likely unconsciously self-sabotage and hold yourself back. I can help you uncover and rewrite your self-beliefs.
When we suffer from anxiety every day can feel laborious. That's because your brain and nervous system are firing on all cylinders all day. I take a two pronged approach to treating anxiety. First you'll learn practical tools based in mindfulness and CBT can help you better cope with anxiety. Second, we'll discover and heal your underlying source/cause of anxiety so that you can have sustained relief.
