Just in the past few years, I’ve taken these trainings:
- Sensorimotor Therapy Training, Level I: Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory
- Beyond Words: Attachment, Trauma, and Implicit Communication
- Attachment: Assessing, Engaging, and Strengthening our Clients’ Capacity to Love
- Neurobiologically Informed Trauma Therapy with Janina Fisher, Ph.D, Years one, two, and three
- Fundamentals of Somatic Experiencing.
- Motivational Interviewing.
- Emotional Freedom Technique.
- Hypnotherapy, NGH-certified.
- Neurolinguistic Programming, Practitioner level.
Since I collaborate with other professionals, you get the benefit not only of my training and experience, but theirs as well. I find that it’s useful to draw from several different approaches so that our work continues to be dynamic and suited to what works best for you.
Clients describe my style as interactive, dynamic, and engaged. (You can find lots of my clients’ words here.)
Like many other practitioners, I believe that the medical model of therapy has its limits. I don’t believe it’s helpful to look at my clients as “diseased”, “ill,” or “disordered.” Rather, I work with folks who have unresolved emotions or other struggles that often stem from unmet needs for connection, unresolved trauma, and the challenges that can come with being highly sensitive.
Because I don’t use the medical model and some of my clients have medical issues, my work is a complementary approach to any medical care needed. Therefore, some clients sign a release for me to speak with their doctor, and vice-versa.
