Trauma Healing

EMDR (Eye movement and desensitization reprocessing) -is an effective, evidenced-based approach to working with highly charged or distressing emotions and experiences.  EMDR works on reprocessing memories that results in reduced or eliminated distressing emotions that accompany a particular traumatic experience.  EMDR can also be used to address panic attacks, phobias and experiences of abuse.  Inquire about IFS-Informed EMDR.

Inner Space Techniques –  I may use IST as a Somatic (Soma = Body) approach to supporting clients with developing the ability to increase self-awareness and emotional wellness by including the feelings and experiences they have in their body as a part of self-healing.  As a result of using Inner Space Techniques, people move well beyond “talk therapy” approaches to process and release feelings, thoughts and experiences that block wellness and an integrated sense of both core and transpersonal aspects of the “Self.”  IST typically takes place with the client comfortably lying down, and incorporates meditation and a specific breathing technique for accessing and integrating more subtle aspects of awareness and healing.
