There is no one-size-fits all. I train as much as I can across different modalities to try and bring in what works best for you, at a specific moment in treatment. (That could be paying attention to parts of you, somatic symptoms or sensations, it could be building up positive networks/ego strengths, it could be versions of EMDR coupled with talk therapy, it could be harm reduction, it could be understanding parts/object relations, it could be understanding neuroscience, it could be poly vagal exercises/affect regulation to ground and come back to a window of tolerance for processing...) It's a joined effort. I will not push you to where you don't want to go. I will explain what I think and offer up ideas, which are up for discussion or rejection. Because ultimately, progress is not just about understanding more (in our heads) what we discover, it about growing the capacity to allow ourselves to feel (in our hearts) our truths, positive and negative. To be able look at our worlds, relationships or issues with new perspectives. And getting to that point requires partnership, trust and support.
I work with people to help them find and achieve their goals. I am trained across a broad range of human centered treatment modalities to help teens, adults and couples transform their lives and relationships in ways that work for them. I am trauma informed and may use EMDR and/or contained EMDr to help desensitize current stressors, reprocess the past (developmental trauma and/or PTSD) and assists with tomorrow’s game plan, all in one session. Additionally, I offer Ketamine-assisted therapy, psychedelic harm reduction and integration therapy for clients who are exploring these re-emerging treatment modalities. As a psychologist, psychedelic therapist, trauma-informed psychotherapist and relational psychoanalyst, I have helped people in multiple and diverse settings over the years - including private practice, psychiatric hospitals, and day treatment centers.
