In living life, it can be stressful. In that stress, we can all get stuck and struggle to navigate. It is not about what is 'wrong' in our lives, but about shifting to a more helpful way of thinking, being, and relating. There is good all around us and we can get set into motion to see it and move toward it.
I am a certified Master Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) practitioner, trained to address trauma, chronic stress, and problematic symptoms. I believe in the transformational power of ART in moving toward healing and resolution. Why spend years in talk therapy when there is a more effective and efficient way for the brain and body to process and heal? See the your appointment tab for more information on ART, as well as the following link:
http://acceleratedresolutiontherapy.com/what-is-art/I am also trained in the Flash Technique, which is an intervention that uses bilateral stimulation in order to reduce distress associated with trauma and traumatic memories. The Flash Technique allows for the brain to process without any direct re-experiencing of the memory, allowing for the process to be minimally intrusive. See the following link for more information on the Flash Technique: https://flashtechnique.com/wp/
In addition to ART and the Flash Technique, I also utilize a trauma-responsive lens pulling from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems perspective to support individuals in living their lives more fully. I recognize the impact that adverse life experiences, chronic stress, and oppressive/anxious systems can have on one's being and behavior in the present.
I have an infinity for working with individuals who have experienced childhood emotional neglect and/or have not gotten their needs met, supporting young adults during phase of life transitions, as well as working with other therapists as they do their own personal work. I often provide ART to individuals that have other services in place and are in need of deep trauma processing as an adjunctive service to other therapy in place.
Starting in 2023, the practice will be focusing on working with adults only, but will consider ART-only services with children and teens.
