I’ve been in the helping profession for 20 years.  The desire to feel better is common and understandable. When feeling down, scared, stressed and not sure why or what to do next, I can work with you to find answers that will allow calm, peace and joy to be your more common experience.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Trauma is an event that overwhelms coping mechanisms due to its deeply distressing nature, resulting in ongoing negative symptoms. Trauma can result from one event, such as a car accident or assault or from ongoing  events such as childhood abuse. 

To address trauma, I use a process called Accelerated Resolution Therapy.  As noted on their website,  

"Accelerated Resolution Therapy works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing images and memories are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions."

Mindfulness and SomaticTherapies

Mindfulness allows for an increased experience of the present moment, and provides skills for understanding ourselves and others. Mindfulness assists in tuning into the body, nervous system and different emotional states  to understand how they are impacted and influenced by past and current experiences.
