I have specialized in the healing of trauma for the last 31 years through individual, group, couples work. My expertise is EMDR. After 18 years of using this tool I am still amazed at how profoundly and quickly clients heal from tremendous pain and struggles. EMDR is often considered to be used only and primarily for a discreet trauma like a car accident. In fact, however, EMDR is a tool that incorporates how the brain processes information every night during REM sleep. Since our brains have REM daily, EMDR is a magnificient way to address most of life's problems.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing which began in 1987. More research has been done on this process than any other approach in the psychotherapy world. A perfect concise overview of this approach can be found on my website link to a youtube newscast.
I am devoted to EMDR having more than 18,000 hours of practice with this approach. I set up treatment with you to safely incorporate EMDR nearly every session. I also am committed to teaching you everything you can do for yourself with this tool for life.
