I am an LCSW (licensed clinical social worker. As a CSAT (certified sex addiction therapist), I am trained in Patrick Carnes' breakthrough methods. I employ a structured treatment, incorporating cognitive and dynamic therapeutic strategies.
I have training in the Polyvagal approach, and I can teach you experientially how to regulate and reshape your autonomic nervous system.
I am trained in EMDR, and I practice this modality with many of my clients.. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.
I can help you to survive, grow, optimize, upgrade, learn, cope, set boundaries, function, heal, trust again, develop intimacy, build confidence, increase self esteem, and in so many ways.
EMDR uses a set of procedures to organize your negative and positive feelings, emotions, and thoughts, and then uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or alternating tapping, as the way to help you effectively work through those disturbing memories, including trauma. EMDR is an evidence based treatment; this means that it's been proven to work!
