About My Clients
The clients I love to work with are brave, strong, curious and they want all the juicy parts of life. They want the whole enchilada. They don't want to be told what they "should" do. They just want to be seen, heard, felt, respected, and they want the truth. They are just plain tired of "trying" to do it all. Usually cursing is done for all the right reasons. They're pretty sure trauma has fucked up their life. Retreating either sounds like heaven or scares the shit out of them.
My Background and Approach
My belief is that most mental health issues like depression and anxiety, relationship struggles, and addiction issues are trauma based. The brain changes and science has provided many ways to work with re-setting the emotional circuitry that has over-adapted to accommodate the harm done by trauma. EMDR is my go to. I have been trained in the most advanced specialties of EMDR. It is the vehicle that most client's have been missing just using talk therapy - which doesn't treat the part of the brain where trauma is frozen.
