Have you ever noticed a "lump in your throat," when you talk about something upsetting? That is because trauma is stored in our nervous system. In order to fully heal, we have to address regulating our nervous system. Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, does just that. EMDR is a somatic, evidenced based treatment that assists the brain's natural healing system in order to move past painful and/or traumatic life events. Traditional talk therapies focus on managing triggers, EMDR therapy focuses on removing triggers and replacing negative core beliefs with positive beliefs. I often tell my clients, that once we do the difficult work of processing painful memories, we are clearing up more space in our brain for joy, peace, and creativity.

In couples therapy, I utilize the Gottman Method, a researched based approach that helps couples decrease conflict, increase intimacy and mutual understanding. The Gottman Method provides thorough assessments of couple's issues to help guide the course of treatment. Additionally, I integrate EMDR with couples as needed.
