EMDR for grief/loss I have extensive experience with loss/grief both through loss of relationships, loss of functioning due to injury or health issues, death and dying including suicide.
I use a combination of Psycho-education (so you understand what is happening in your brain when you get anxious), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to treat anxiety. Years and years of experience successfully treating anxiety.
I’m actually trained in Ego State Therapy but it wasn’t an option for doing this profile. Ego state therapy is the basis for IFS and in my opinion, much more suited when working with complex trauma. I have complete 2 advanced trainings on Ego state therapy and currently finishing up a 1 year course using ego state therapy for complex trauma. I’ve been doing ego state techniques for about 6 years.
Certified in EMDR and extensive use of EMDR techniques over the past 8 years with the majority of my clients. As listed above, I have extensive advanced training in applying EMDR techniques to certain diagnosis. Due to my extensive training I am considered a specialist in the field of trauma treatment.
20 years of doing CBT prior to getting trained in EMDR. I have a unique approach to CNT and teach almost all my clients how to implement CBT effectively on their own. I have had numerous CNT trainings over the past 30 years of practice.
