I offer individual, family and group treatment. I use holistic approaches to help clients find their individual spiritual path for healing. I also provide EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, which helps relieve the disruption in the body's energy system caused by abuse or other traumatic events.
I have also recently added EMDR bi-lateral stimulation
into my treatment option toolkit.
EMDR is effective in treating phobias, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, and negative or self-limiting thoughts.
In the clinical setting, a therapist uses EMDR to interrupt the patterns that were established as a result of a traumatic event. Because eye movements are associated with the processing of specific types of information by the brain, such as in REM sleep, it is believed that this technique helps the brain to reprocess the event without its traumatic aspects. The changes achieved are often dramatic.
EFT, as mentioned above uses tapping on specific body points, eye movement, and verbalizations to also help with integration and healing.
