Making sense of what happened to you can be daunting work, and at times it may even seem futile. But I am here to provide you with a range of options to facilitate your own inner capacity to heal through experiential and meaningful conversations. These experiential conversations involve art therapy, bibliotherapy, EMDR, Brainspotting, mindfulness and meditation, or a simple listening ear that is free of judgment and blame.
I have experience working with survivors of family abuse and intimate partner violence through my work in community mental health and through local domestic violence shelters. Through these experiences, I learned the importance of providing a space where you can access your own wisdom and trust your own choices, whether you are still in that relationship or if you left a long time ago. My priority with this population is to empower, support, and listen with unconditional positive regard.
Our current political climate is undeniably exacerbating symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and stress. I hear everyday how this is affecting people, nonetheless, I rarely see clients come in to therapy to address these issues because "it's not bad enough." Your experience around our political issues and concerns are valid, and you're welcome to process these in session with me.
Art therapy is an opportunity to have a visual conversation with yourself. You absolutely do not need to be an artist or a child in order to experience the healing abilities of art-making. I like to use art therapy when my clients can't find the words to express their inner and external experiences.
Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is another experiential technique I use in the treatment of trauma.
Brainspotting (BSP) is a unique and exciting tool I use to promote post-traumatic healing and growth.
